A few things. Just off the top of my head…
-Five people do not fit
comfortably at all in a queen-size bed. Even when four of those people are small.
-When five people are in a queen-size bed, inevitably, one will roll off.
-We need (plush) carpeting around the bed.
-Little girls snore shockingly loudly. And they don’t respond to poking.
-Little boys don’t need sleep. But they do need to have four teddy bears and one battery-powered Thomas the Tank Engine in bed with them at all times.
-Do not take pictures of the circus that is our bedroom at 3:30 in the morning. Because a flash camera just pisses everyone off.
-Nothing in my life seems all that wonderful at 4:15 in the morning.
-We don’t save enough money or recycle as much as we should. None of our furniture matches. And didn’t I buy toothpaste this week–did I leave the store without it?
-After three nights of no sleep, I do not make
-Apparently, stay-at-home mommies cannot call in late to work. And my bosses have no mercy.
