And of course I mean that in the most innocent sense of the word.

I remember, as a child, tucking my stuffed animals into my bed in hopes that it would get me out of making the bed. Mom said they could stay there for the day, but that I couldn't do it again.

Alex had the girls out with him this evening. When I went around closing windows and curtains I also opened up their beds as a tiny contribution to the upcoming bedtime rush. Robin had tucked some of her animals into her bed and let me just say, they looked...cozy.

My girls do that too! Looks like Robin sleeps with as many animals as my oldest does. I don't know how there's room for a kid in that bed sometimes with all the animals, but she's got it all worked out.

:) Funny!

I'll go with Julie's spooning explanation of what they are doing because my dirty dirty mind went immediately elsewhere... :}

Oh, trust me, so did mine.

I think the snake casually draped over the cow's shoulder is my favorite part.

Or maybe the horse - something about the angle and the far-off look in his eye.

But then, if you look at the larger view, the expression on that last tiny little dog is great too; it's impossible to choose.

I sort of recall the occasion for making the snake - Robin had had a bad dream about snakes, or had otherwise become afraid of them. She went through a time of being terrified there might be a snake in the house/room. This snake was to help her be more comfortable about snakes.

I remember once, long after I thought the snake incident was at an end, I was reading to Robin at nap time. When I finsihed reading and was about to leave the room, she commented that she especially liked taking her nap in that room. (It was a room in which I did some quilting, but was not in general use.)

I asked why she liked the room, and she said that she knew no snake could be hiding behind a curtain. (The room had only a valance at the window.) So maybe the anxiety about snakes was under control, but not over.
