Bedtime Rules

The Fripits likes things to be a certain way. Her way. And lately has been coming up with creative "rules" that have to be done before she can go asleep. Until everything is just so, she looks nervous.

Rule Number One: All her stuffed animals have to be in bed with her. They are not allowed to touch her, and they have to be in a semi-circle formation around her feet.
Rule Number Two: The trundle bed under her bed has to be pulled out.
Rule Number Three: Each and every closet door must be opened.
Rule Number Four: The rocking chair cushion must be on the floor.

Once all has been done, she is very happy and ready to sleep. She does all these steps by herself, and cleans it all up in the morning.


Three year olds are just too funny.

She is so adorable! Too funny...=)

The kids really liked the story about the spiders (from your mom's blog...)and they laughed at the story of your sister and the chickens...=) I did a slideshow...complete with pictures and then the story!=)It is a hit!=)You should write stories about living in the jungle on a kid level...your such a great writer and you make people laugh, I think it would be a hit!

Oh and the last couple of pictures I have taken...I used my regular lens...=) and my hubby showed me how I can blur a picture in photoshop so I don't always have to use that lens. It is almost easier to use photoshop.

Your pictures are awesome. My dad had that same camera until he sold it and got the D80. My grandma Creed has a D60...I love how it sounds...sounds professional with all the clicking it does...=) I have a D40 and love it...Nikons are the best!!=) don't know why I just told you all that you probably could care less...but I remember you said you had a Nikon. You could start a business...u r awesome.=) You go girl...I need to go to sleep now...=)

She's a king and needs her subjects to attend her!

Rough Edges: Fripits is the nickname I use on this blog for my oldest. I don't think I ever met Gracie...?
Brenda: Strong will. YES!
MaMa Vaughn: I love my D80! I'm totally addicted!

We have one quirky like that! The blanket can't have wrinkles and lately he's taken to sleeping with Oscar the snowman beside him, all safe and sound, tucked under the covers:)

My 3 year old is particular as well! He lines all his matchbox cars up and freaks out if one is missing. Isn't it fun to see their character develop and their personality start to bloom!
