Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house.

What's The Weirdest Thing You've Found In Your Child's Bed?

My kids have certain lovies that they cannot sleep without (I had a blanket, so I can't really complain about a stuffed animal or two). However, in addition to that, my youngest is constantly trying to sneak things into his bed. For example, he has a favorite pair of boots and Crocs that routinely end up in bed with him (sometimes on his feet, sometimes not).

There are some things I have to do before I go to bed or I can't sleep. One of those is checking on the kids and making sure everything is alright. One night, he had kicked all his covers down, so I went to put them back on him and heard something heavy hit the floor. I bent down to get it. Guess what it was? A potato! Not a play potato from his play kitchen, but a real potato he had taken out of my kitchen. To this day, I have no idea why.

Last night, when I checked on him, I saw one of his slippers sticking out of the covers. I decided to see what else he had hidden in there. Here's what else I found: 13 stuffed animals (a few of his brother's were thrown in there too), 1 Nerf gun, 1 metal kitchen play spoon, 1 pair Crocs, 1 ninja, 2 cups of water, his 2 pillows, and his blankets.

Please share what's the weirdest thing you've found in your child's bed!

  1. Pencils, legos, marbles, scissors, 4 blankets, several stuffed animals (mostly angry birds that squawk when you roll on top of them, always a great find when you lean on one accidentally) many other items I can't remember, but I'll share if I come up with a good one.


I love to hear from you! I promise I read every comment, but I don't always remember to respond to each one.
