A magic brush in my bed & Day 116. 249 Days Left.

Every night before I go to sleep, I go on a scavenger hunt; searching Addison's and Jackson's beds for whatever random toys they managed to slip in with them. This is my way of avoiding a wake up call from toddlers rolling over on hard plastic dinosaurs or race cars; because once up, they end up in our bed.

Last night, while pulling toys from under Addison, I woke her. Her eyes popped opened and she whispered “mommy, there is a magic brush in my bed… and a mirror… and flashlight.”

I run my hands through the covers and found the brush first than the mirror and flashlight. I asked why she had this stuff hoarded in bed. Her response; a quiet, half mumbled, “I wanted my hair to grow like Tangled and be magic. I needed to brush it.” I ask her “but why the mirror and flashlight?“ She replied; “how else do I see?” Sounds about right.

Twenty minutes later, she, her magic brush, mirror and flashlight, along with a handful of Toy Story Friends, ended up in bed with us.

What has been the strangest thing you found stuffed in your little cutie's bed?

Day 116

When my oldest was 4 I started noticing that she was into building pyramids of her stuffed toys and putting them on the bed before going so sleep but after I'd tucked her in. At first I thought it was cute but then I started wondering - she had, for years, a superstition about leaving anything on the ground when she slept - so would put EVERYTHING - up on the bed w. her, even bits of paper, old shoes, you name it. So um, that was pretty strange!

that's pretty funny. nothing yet here... she just has a handful of stuffed animals and chewy type toys (sounds like my dog's bed too! LOL)
