Rachel 24/365

Today I put Natalie in her bed for a nap and, like she sometimes does, she started singing and talking to her stuffed animals.  Usually, if I leave her, she'll talk and play for 5-10 minutes then go to sleep.  Well today the talking/playing went on for about 20 minutes, but eventually she got quiet and fell asleep.  She slept for about 3 hours.  When I heard her wake up, I went in to get her and couldn't find her.  (She'd taken her Piglet - which is about as big as she is - and put him on her pillow and covered him with the blanktes... just like you see in the movies lol) Then, I heard movement in her closet.  I turned the closet light on (because it was pitch black in there) and this is what I found.  (Luckily, I had my cell phone in my hand and could snap this pic... sorry for the quality).   This closet was completely clean before nap time.  All of that dress up stuff was in the white trunk and the other stuff was in the pink rubbermaid (the one she's sitting in)... there was NOTHING on the floor. Apparently, before falling asleep, she decided to get out of bed, go into the pitch black closet, and in the dark, totally empty the toy box and the dress up trunk, put on part of her Halloween costume and a necklace, and sleep in the floor on top of the mess.  When I saw this I started laughing so hard I could barely stand up.  How hilarious that she did it at all... and even funnier that she did it all in the dark.  I'm still laughing about it.


  1. So awesome! That girl is too funny! I saw you at church and wanted to speak but never got the chance! :(

  2. She is a character!! I love it.
