I'm sure I've fussed on here before about my daughter that is a picky eater, a picky dresser, picky about the pillowcase and blankets she uses, picky about her toothpaste and toothbrush... Basically, she's a girl who knows what she likes, and sticks to it. (I mean STICKS to it.)
What I'm NOT sure if I've mentioned on here before...is about where my daughter gets her picky nature.
Or, perhaps I should call it, "Her discerning taste." That sounds better, doesn't it?
Especially, in light of what I am about to show you.
I've been slow to realize where my daughter gets her "discerning nature." I think the first time I really noticed was when she started stealing the pillow off my bed. She said my pillow was much softer than hers. I'd have to go check her bed when I was ready to lie down, and try to ease her little head off my pillow, without waking her up.
I mean, a mama needs to have her own pillow, right? She had her own pillow, and even though it was different than mine, I felt like it was plenty soft. Plus, I was kind of attached to my pillow. It was just the perfect size, and, well, it was really soft.
Well...discerning child felt my sky blue pillowcase was much softer than her pink daisy one. And...I didn't want to trade pillows. I could tell you that it was because the blue pillow matched our bedroom, and the pink daisy one did not. But, to be honest, I just didn't want to trade...because the blue one was...softer!!!
(Are you noticing a theme here?)
Finally, after too many nights of this musical pillow game, my brilliant husband suggested we take discerning daughter to the store, and let her pick out the very softest pillowcases she could find. And buy 4 of them! She could have 1, and so could her mama! Plus, a couple extra.
Perfect. Problem solved.
Two picky (discerning) people are satisfied, and everybody has a soft pillow.
Well...this morning after getting out of bed, I noticed something. It made me giggle, and feel TERRIBLE all at the same time.
And I did what all good bloggers did: I took a picture!
But first! Let me preface this picture to say...I have been sick with the flu this week. I've felt terrible, and have slept terribly!!
At least I HOPE this is not what our bed would look like on a normal day...
Can you guess which side is the "discerning mama" side?
THREE pillows to help elevate her congested head, and ONE pillow to prop under her FEET. Do the math, people--that equals FOUR soft pillows...
And 2 folded-up towels for her poor, poor husband.
I am a terrible, pillow-hogging person!!
(Yeah, and I steal the covers, too.)
What about you? Do you steal covers and soft pillows?
