The other morning, I was braiding Jenna’s hair before school.
We’re facing the mirror together, and talking about lots of important things.
She starts: “Mom…… why does daddy always get to sleep in YOUR bed?”
And I love that she just knows it’s MY bed, and her father is obviously bordering on rude for still occupying that space at night…..just ASSUMING he has the right….geez……
Also, she is looking to get him out so she can take that spot, but she’s subtle enough to not bring that up just yet.
So I say “Hmmmmmm, well I don’t know Jenna, where else would he sleep??”
She’s clearly thought this out, because she answers immediately, no hesitation.
“Well, why don’t we just get some blankets, and pillows, and make him a bed somewhere else? Like maybe in his bathroom?
Another great idea…. and it would make things a lot more convenient for him as well.
She did eventually offer to let him make a bed for himself in our room…and even said she’d help him build it.
