i love my weirdo.

Do your kids have idiosyncrasies?
Do they make you pee your pants laughing?
Here's our new one:


A few weeks ago, Elias started getting VERY PARTICULAR about his blanket placement. He liked his ONE blanket spread just underneath his chin & just beneath his toes - tucked in.
Not too weird, right? (blanket count: 1)

A week or so later, he stole Glory's matching blanket and decided he needed one for the top half of his body & one for the bottom, completely tucked in.
Well - high maintenance, but no big.
(blanket count: 2)

Yet another week later, I had one of Benj's blankets slung over my shoulder for spit-up protection as I put him to bed and he threw a massive fit - demanding it be added to his top half blanket cover-up. I agreed to his demand because I was tired & I didn't think it would end up in his line-up. (blanket count: 3)

Imagine my frustration with myself when I made the same mistake with another of Benj's blankets a few nights later.

And now, we're up to four blankets.
They must all be securely tucked around him & his lovey and puppup must be shoved up in his ears. If one becomes loose in the night, we are awoken with an ear-piercing "BLLLLLAAANKKKKEEET! COOOOVVVVVEEERRRRSSS!"

The truth is, I don't think he's all the sensitive or in need of blanket security,
I think he just likes to be fussed over:).
