Contents of a Child’s Bed

I really don’t know how my daughters sleep. No matter how many times I declutter their beds, within a day or two they’re back to being a complete mess. Here is what Mighty-Girl’s bed looked like today:

MG's bed

This is what was under the pillow:

Under MG's pillow

She sneakily writes stories in bad light after she’s sent to bed. I used to read late when I was supposed to be asleep. It’s what children do, but I really need to put MG and DG in separate rooms so they stop disturbing each other!

I found this summary of Winnie’s Amazing Pumpkin:

Winnie's Amazing Pumpkin

“Book called Winnie’s Amazing Pumpkin yoused magic a pumpkin grue big and shared it with the wholl town then turned it into a helecocter”

I found this start of Hansel and Gretel (there’s a book version I wanted to photograph but I couldn’t find where she’d put that one, obviously not in bed!)

Hansel and Gretel

“Once upon a time there lived a step mum a dad a boy called hansel and a girl called gretel. they were very pour so the wicked step mum told the dad we must go to the forest and leve the children there the farther said no but soon he said ok lit’s do it so they did but the children were a wake and herd so Hansel went out and got peples.”

I also found a complete version of Jack and the Beanstalk, here is the first page:

Jack and the Beanstalk

“Once there lived a boy called Jack he was paw he hat to sell his cow daysy he saw a man the man arsct Jack if the cow was for sail Jack said yes.”

Having a child who is good at writing, you don’t actually realise how good until you see writing by others of the same age. To me, it’s just her writing. Her teacher did say it was like that of a much older child in her parents’ evening. The size of her writing can be erratic, because she concentrates on writing in cursive, and she needs to work on her punctuation (and spelling!) but I do think she is pretty awesome (with the great writing or not!)

I’ve pulled out all the books, and papers, but left the soft toys. I still don’t know how she sleeps! Destructo-Girl’s bed is just filled with soft toys. And the occasional felt tip pen which destroys all the sheets and covers *cry* Aargghh, kids! 😉
