Take for example a sleep over with my grand children. Sleep overs usually happen when their parents need to go out and the children are not apart of the evening. So they just come to my house and we get to spend the whole night together. Then in the morning they hang out till their parents are ready for them to return.
Sophie is very interested in this bead necklace, bracelet making thing. Serious as any jewelry maker would be about her beads and strings. All was going along just dandy. UNTIL!
Until the beads started falling and rolling under the bed.
“Pick up those beads,” I shouted, “You are losing them.”
They both crawled under the bed to pick up the tiny beads. Then they both realized, under the bed is more fun then on top of the bed .
There was no talking them out from under the bed. This play time won out. Beads became history and left under the bed.
Pictures are not upside down. See when you are under the bed you take upside down pictures. Sophie, letting her head hang out and her tongue accidentally rolled out. Guess that is what happens when you are hanging out under the bed.
Yes, this sleep over morning turned out to be a precious morning experience with these two. In a matter of moments they both went from quiet jewelry making to under the bed time.
They managed to make a necklace for me, Grandma, before they both fell under the bed.
