The following items are present in the bed with The Young Prince this evening as we attempt to get him to fall asleep:

  1. Pillow
  2. Soft Blanket
  3. Quilt, not so soft
  4. Snowman Flannel Sheet Set
  5. Hasenpfeffer the Bunny
  6. Timmy the Sheep
  7. Magic Wand
  8. Toy Helicopter
  9. Tambourine*
  10. Snuggle the Bear (Promotional toy from our last trip to the grocery store)
  11. Woody the Cowboy (Talking)*
  12. Buzz the Spaceman (Also talking, in both English and Spanish, and playing sound effects, and flashing laser beams)*
  13. One copy of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

I swear that somewhere under his bed is a horde of other toys, because occasionally we hear something that wasn't accounted for as he drifts off to sleep.  I'm amazed there's still room for Boo.

*Hell hath no wrath as a set of aunts whose childless sister, who has been giving their kids obnoxious presents for years, suddenly has a child of her own.

LOL, and without ALL of them he probably won't got to sleep, right?

Not quietly, and certainly not quickly.

The Biscuit is the same way - has to have a menagerie of animals, blankets to the ceiling and the favorite doll(s) of the day... fortunately she's tiny!

You should see what's on Baby Girl G.'s bed. 48 pillows, 73 books, 36 blankets, 185 stuffed animals, and one small but cute female child.

The oldest has a plethora of junk that has to be there. Sometimes I think I can get away with sneaking stuff out of the pile. I am always tragically wrong.

My girls tend to vacillate between one or two favorite "friends," and piling so many on the bed that it's hard to find my kid.
