Sandra’s hack reminded me of my own kids’ quirky hoarding habits when they were toddlers:
My daughter Mia is 2yrs and insists on bringing toys to bed with her at night. She recently upgraded to a toddler bed and has the luxury of deciding what goes to bed with her even after we’ve turned off the lights and said good night. This means that she has everything from books, Little People, stuffed toys and dolls to the latest prize possession – a toy blow dryer.
I started rolling her hard plastic toys in an extra blanket and putting it next to her in bed. This way I’m not worried that the uncomfortable hard toys will wake her up at night and she still gets to decide (like the big girl that she is) what comes to bed that night.
