What kinds of odd obsessive habits does your toddler have?

My 2-yr-old's blanket has to be just so when I put him to bed at night. It must cover all visible parts of the sheet, including what's next to his pillow; if he turns his head and sees sheet, he throws a fit.

He also likes to line his cars up, all of them facing the same way, and he gets agitated if one of them gets pushed out of place.

What about yours?
