at first glance

...this might appear to be a sadistic ritual hanging of symbolic animals.



...but its actually a response to the request there are far too many stuffed animals on this bed, so pick half to put up in the pet net, or rearrange them so there is actually room for a five year old boy to sleep. Iggy was sad to think that Ooky would lose any of his 53 sleeping companions to to pet net, so he came up with the above pictured solution.

You see, it was a hanging done for love.

At first glance, this might seem to be a simple army tank and school bus, possibly used to play out wars between GI Joe and an antiquey set of Fisher Price Little People...



...but recently these have been used by two little men to deliver love notes to their Mom and to each other. Let me tell you, there is nothing like seeing a tank come around the corner with a love note taped to its gun.

And finally, at first glance, this might look like two boys and their Dad getting ready to blast the heck out of a bunch of pop and beer cans with their BB guns...



...but what it really is...ok, I won't lie. They are getting ready to blast the heck out of pop and beer cans with their BB guns. But its also a picture of two kids soaking up the Dad Love before he leaves home for another week of work.

Soak it up boys.
:)
And enjoy.

Love notes are my favorite thing. :)

That is the second blog picture I've seen of hanging bunk bed animals....and since my boys do it too maybe it's not all that odd after all.

All I can tell you is that if I woke up and saw all those creatures hanging over me, I would be out the door and down the hall in a hare's breadth!! ;) And I LOVE that the tank brings love notes. Might have solved the whole Iraq crisis, if that had been the case, eh?

I love that solution! I'm betting Pickle would love to have her zoo hanging above her--but what about Boo? Her bed is always stuffed full!

We don't have bunk beds for the girls but we could sure use a solution to the overpopulation of stuffed animals around here. Love it!
