My favorite pile

Heads Or Tails

This week's theme on Heads or Tails is "pile." Participants are invited to make any kind of post using "pile" as the topic. You can play, too! Just click here to learn more.

Like most people, I have piles of laundry, piles of dishes, and piles of books. But here is a picture of my favorite pile:

As you can see, it is a pile of blankets and stuffed animals, inside a little Pack And Play. This is where my precious 2-year-old grandbaby sleeps when she spends the night.

Here are the rules for her pile:

1. There must be at least 3 blankets, no matter how hot it is. And here in Texas, it is usually plenty hot.

2. One blanket must be totally flat on the bottom of the Pack And Play. If there are any wrinkles, they must be smoothed out over and over and over.

3. The stuffed animals (preferably bears) go in the corners.

4. If there are pillows available, they may be acceptable. It just depends.

And 5. Once everything is in order, and after everyone has left the room, each item must be thrown from the Pack And Play, onto the floor. If you yell "Hep me! I need hep! Evewyting fall on da floor!!!" someone is sure to come back in and play with you.

How sweet! I remember days like that. My grandkids are now 10 and 12 so no more of that kind of fun stuff. Enjoy every minute of it!

Thanks for the comments, everybody! I hope little Riley always has some sort of piles at my house. Today it's blankets and teddy bears, some day it will be make-up and totally inappropriate clothes her mother won't let her wear.
