Since birth, Cal has exhibited extreme collector tendencies. His crib and toddler beds were always filled to the brim with most everything he owned - books, toys, stuffed animals, clothes. Somewhere we have a photo of him sleeping with a pile of leaves he'd picked up on a walk. He hates, hates to donate or get rid of anything and not because he's greedy, he's just attached. Instantly, to anything he has any connection to. I am quite the opposite - Alexi regularly tells me not to touch or remove certain items because he knows if he doesn't, the thing in question will be gone before he returns home from work. I don't know where Cal gets it but I suppose it's just his nature.
