Night Terrors aka Sleeping with a Six Year Old

Ok so here is a picture of me and my niece.

I love this kid to pieces and for some odd reason she is crazy about me. From here on out I will lovingly refer to her as Little Sassy, Sassafras or maybe just Sassy. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE this kid, but she is a terror to sleep with! Whenever she visits my house, or I visit her house or we go on family vacation, we end up in the same bed. I am not at all complaining, it just works better this way, but I have never slept with anyone that is so rolly polly. I often get a hand or foot in the face, feet under my side, or quite often a head on my ribs. So this last week, I decided to document Little Sassy every night before I slipped into bed with my full football gear on.

Just to let you know, her pillow is the polka dot one . . . and that is also her side of the bed . . . hum

How can six year old Sassafras need more bed space then me?

And you know what’s funny? By the end of the week I would wake up and wonder why she was not next to me . . . and when she went home, the bed felt very empty. Can’t wait for your next visit Little Sassy!

Ohhh- I love it. She is a mess in the bed. She destroys sheets - her bed is nightmare to make. She likes to sleep on top of the comforter and I let her, just so I don't have to untangle everything in the morning! This is a sweet blog though, I love it. You are the best Auntie EVER!

Is she not the most precious thing you have ever seen. God love her. Thanks for making me smile this morning, ok laugh out loud. I love it and I love all of you so much we do have a good time when we are together.

You know, I think we could probably make an analogous post with how many books we have to extract from her bed here each night.
