I’d like to introduce you to my bed.

the bed

Upon further inspection you’ll notice the pillow to spouse ratio is a little off.

1. Hidden body pillow.

2. Accent pillows.

3. My woobie pillow.
4. My woobie blanket.

5. Cody’s regular pillow

6. Cody’s body pillow

Unfortunately our *ahem* problem has been passed down a generation.

moosh bed

Allow me to explain.

moosh bed breakdown

1. Collection of Princesses and Fairy Godmothers.

2. Princess pillow.

3. Quilt made by me (more or less)

3a. Green blanket.

3b. Red blanket.

3c. Pink blanket.

4. The all important purple woobie. (also made by me.)

Needless to say the moosh never sleeps in our bed because of our, well, stuff.

Cody and I can barely stay in the same bed.

It starts out something like this:

Start

Civil enough right? And when we get all hot and I get sick of chest hair tickling my nose we split into something like this:

Break

Around the middle of the night we’ve adjusted slightly.

Middle

We find each other again in the early hours. Though by now we’re a lot more potent with sleep smell:

Rearranged

By morning it’s every man for himself.

End of the Night

Except Saturday and Sunday mornings when the moosh and her woobies take over join us.

Needless to say we don’t sleep in much on the weekends.

  6. Oh I love this! And it’s so familiar. It’s got to be genetic. We can’t even find Hollis’s sheets under all the stuffed animals, blankets and pillows at times.

  7. The last time our 16 month old slept with us I woke up to see her sitting straight up on her knees, just staring at me. Within 2 seconds she THREW herself onto me & slammed our heads together. She never even batted an eyelash & went back to sleep as I tried to shove my brain back in my skull. She is never allowed to sleep with me again.

    And I’m the spouse with 9 pillows. J gets one. That’s all he has room for!

  16. Still *snorting* over all these stick man drawings.

    I’m the pillow hog at my house. I need 3 all for me….and no one better be touchin ‘em either. ;)

    Aren’t we funny about our sleep? It seems people are particularly fussy or could sleep in any position (including in an airplane seat – wha?????).

    Thanks for the giggles.

    I came your way via Fussy’s blog, but I bet we’ve met on the blissfully domestic forum. =)
