As I've mentioned before, Mae strips down her bed every single time she walks into the room to find it made. I actually gave up on making it months and months ago and was allowing her to sleep on the mattress, but apparently it bothered Sadie enough that Sadie kept "trying to make it nice" for her sister by making her bed for her, and inevitably Mae would spend bedtime stripping the bed until it was bare.
Lately Mae hadn't even wanted to sleep on the bed. Since her ear infection she'd insisted on sleeping on the ground.
Yesterday I finally found the satin sheets that I'd bought a while back that had somehow gotten put off to the side and hidden under something else in the last few months. Today, while Mae was at therapy, I slipped them onto her bed.
When Paul put Maggie to bed tonight I asked him what happened and he had no idea because she'd gone into her room and closed the door (which is kept open about an inch by the door monkey, which she actually really seems to appreciate now). When I went in her room after she'd fallen asleep and peeked in, I found her in her bed with the sheets (and her favorite stuffed animals) still in place.
I almost did a little dance, but managed to contain my excitement rather than risk waking her up... but still! I am very, very excited that we seem to have finally found sheets that she likes!
Maybe I can use the sheet that came with the set to make her a satin weighted blanket...
And to give an example of what he was going for with all that blinking... here's an example. I have so many pictures like this! He stops for me and smiles and then when I press the button to take the picture...
They are quite the team together.
|And his eyes are open in this one!|
Although he looks a little suspicious of me...
Of course this was the person complaining (the little one, not Paul!):
(and since it's hard to see who it is in that picture at that size here's one more):
Of course, if you ask her, she'll tell you "the cold never bothered me anyways..."
So that could have something to do with her problem with summer.
Yesterday we went by the school and snapped quite a few pictures of Paul around campus (today is graduation).

|That's him at the bottom and that's how far I had to go back to get the whole tower in.|

Oh my goodness, that last photo should be submitted to Awkward Family Photos! That is hilarious, and probably something Our kids would do too!ReplyDelete
First look I was focused on Mae,Patch and the two of you and wondered where Sadie was. Second look I spotted Sadie. It wasn't until I looked again that I figured out the awkward part. I must be slow this morning...ReplyDelete
Who wouldn't love silk sheets! Glad she seems happy with them!ReplyDelete
And congrats to Paul (and you!) on his graduation.
I burst out laughing when I saw the picture! It should definitely be on an awkward family photo site!ReplyDelete
