More Bedtime Randomness

I've blogged in the past about the random array of things we find in Caroline's bed after she's asleep and that clearly she's got almost an entire other life that we aren't privy to since she's such an imaginative kid and thinks of things that no adult would ever think of. Usually it's just books but sometimes you really find some odd things. Sunday night was no different. I went into check on her before I went to bed and there she was asleep with several books around her, but she also had a hand towel spread over her. Then upon further investigation I saw that there was a book laying next to her head with a FULL paper cup of water!!! And on the other side of her was a damp wash cloth. What in the world was she doing???

So I dumped out the water and took the books out and went to bed. The next day I asked her what she was up to and she went into some long story about how her eyes were crying, but she wasn't crying, and she needed to wipe them with a wash cloth and then she needed the towel. That night at bed I found a 2nd paper cup in her bed too. Which makes me think there's a theme here because on Sunday morning while Piper and I were dozing in bed after a 6am nursing session, Caroline came in an snuggled with us and I went back to sleep. But a little while later I woke up to find Caroline sitting up in my bed with a comb, towel, and cup of water. She had already completely spilled the cup of water all over the bed and had gotten the towel to clean up. When I asked her what she was doing with the cup in my bed to begin with, she said that Piper's hair was sweaty and needed to be combed with water.

Um yeah, that logic completely befuddles me. She just has such an active imagination and always has a method to her madness no matter what it is, we just have yet to figure it out.

Oh that Caroline! She cracks me up. I hope she doesn't spill any of the cups in the near future.

P.S. You said privy. Hehe. ;-)
