Too close for comfort...

"I don't want to scare you," Rick woke me in the middle of the night to say, "but Cora and Jamie are not in their bed."

"I'm sure they just snuck downstairs to play Wii with the older kids and fell asleep." I said, trying to convince myself as well.

Fortunately for me, I was stopped before making it downstairs where I would have discovered that the girls were not there, leading to my early demise from a heart attack and robbing me of the chance to turn forty, (I so want the chance to be forty) when Rick suddenly announced, "Wait, they're sleeping under the bed."


Sleeping UNDER the bed.
On purpose.


Crazy girls.


Though I would never, EVER want to sleep under a bed (in fact fits of claustrophobia kept waking me the rest of the night as I thought of sleeping with a bed inches above my face. Yuck.) I will admit that there is nothing quite as magical as spending summer nights with cousins.

Cousin love...
Is there anything better?

Wow, can you imagine if Rick didn't look under the bed. You would have been outside with flashlights all night! That is so classic. I love it!!

What funny girls. I'm with you I would never do that!

They are so cute. There is no way you would catch me doing that. I don't even like to sit on the lower bunk to talk to my son at night.

Maybe that explains why your closets looked the way they did before you cleaned them. How many kids have spotless under-the-beds?? In college, I had some beds that were especially high off the floor and I thought it was fun to hang out under there. Like I need a clubhouse when I'm in college. Since I didn't have that much junk, I could stuff it all in my closet too.

Nope, my kids do that too. I don't get it, I'd hit my head when I get up.
