I’ve been re-organising the house, a project that started about a week ago and which will probably take another 2-3 days to complete.
During this time the house has looked like a bomb site and it’s been a little stressful, to say the least!
I did my bedroom first then moved on to Kaycee and Ella’s room. It had been an absolute tip for about a week and I’d put off doing it because I knew it was going to take most of the day.
I finally managed to get it clean and re-organised with only Kaycee’s top bunk left to sort. I don’t go up there but could see she had a few things at the bottom of her bed so I asked her to clear her bed off for me.
The following photos show the amount of stuff she had on her bed and I swear I had no idea there was this much stuff. I also had no idea how she managed to fit in there, let alone get any sleep!
I bet my face was a picture when I saw the amount of stuff she took off of her bed!
A bit of bedtime reading….for the next year?!
Enough cuddly toys and dolls to never feel alone!
Taking a trip to dreamland maybe? 🙂
In her defense, she didn’t put the suitcase up there, I put it up there the day I started cleaning their room and I forgot to take it down. She, however, didn’t move it for 3 days!
I have no idea why she needed 2 hot water bottles in the middle of the hottest summer we’ve had for years! Maybe the fan was to counteract the effect of the hot water bottles?!
Of course, you have to keep your Moshi Monsters safe from your little sister who’s also collecting them so I can see the logic in that but the post it notes and big wooden Crayola crayon box?
She likes to craft and is always saving cardboard from the recycling!
Spare pajamas, nighties, a flannel, handkerchief and….. a piece of material!
Finally, lots of paper in case she has to write down all the ideas that come to her for the many stories she likes to write 🙂
Tell me truthfully, have you ever seen this amount of stuff on one 8 year olds bed?!
