Bed or Box??

Okay, I know you all are dying to hear from me!  Here I am, escaping from responsibility again, staying up later than is healthy for me or my family. There is much to tell you -- my current to-do list (the last one was so engrossing I thought I would share another one with you), a report on our trip to my folks', plus photos maybe, and our upcoming missions conference. Well, I really can't talk right now, but I wanted to share with you the reason why all little children ought to have their own beds:


 



 


It makes a great toybox!  My 3yo Emily sleeps on the floor every night because she "likes to", according to her, but I am beggining to think the real reason is that she doesn't know where to put all this stuff. I don't know either.... I was thinking I should clean this up and make her sleep in the bed we spent good money on.  But hmmm, sleeping on the floor is not a bad idea.  Maybe the Lord is preparing her to serve him from a hut in Africa, with a grass mat for a mattress! She would feel right at home.

  1. That's how the cots end up looking in my house because I always end up putting the baby in with me. This time around we had to buy another cot and I swore that I would not put the baby in with me but that's where he is, I was really good for a while :) It always takes me having another baby to get them to move on but this time I am going to be all grown and mature and ship him on out before it gets to that :)

  2. LOL. Somehow we manage to keep the beds clear, except I don't have the heart to kick a cat or 2 off, so they don't always get made. Ladybug is a saver though and even after she cleans, all's I see is clutter.

    ps - It's 46 degrees here this morning - I'm going to wear a jacket to the barn - kinda hard to imagine, isn't it.

  3. Hey, it looks like you can walk around on the floor in there! It's a challenge in my boy's room! He has a double bed, and I think things get pushed over sometimes.

  4. Hi Mom,


    I asked Emily last night that if her bed was cleared off, would she sleep on the floor or in her bed. She said, "On the floor." But then after a few seconds added, "Well, I MIGHT sleep in my bed." So I think she is telling the truth about liking to sleep on the floor. :o)


    And, bethanyrae, the reason that there is room to walk in there is because all of the clutter is in Emily's bed (or under Elisabeth's bed).
