Is that comfortable?

Tovina has taken to sleeping on the floor. I don't mean her mattress which lays on the floor, apparently that was just not low enough for her standards, she wants to sleep on the ground itself. A carpet is tolerable though it took 2 days to convince her that a blanket underneath her didn't invalidate whatever it is she is trying to accomplish.

We have no idea what is going on.

She has been doing this for almost a month now. We stayed over with cousins the other day and Tovina was all excited because she was allowed to share a bed with Sabrina who is about the same age.... but the next morning she was lying face down on the floor again. It turns out that another adult replaced Tovina in the bed twice during the night but T kept re-replacing herself out of the bed. And we're pretty sure - though we don't have any eye witness accounts - that she is not falling out of bed but rather making a conscious choice. (Would that be unconscious since she is mostly sleeping?)

I guess those triple level bunk beds Tovina's Daddy has been dreaming of are farther off than we first suspected.

Sienna did this too, between the ages of 3 and 5. She was always dragging her blankets to the floor. I think it was her way of making a choice (since most of her life was filled with no choice). And once she did it, and we didn't get mad, it was the best thing in the world to her. Later we coaxed her into bed by turning her bed into a tent. - Lisa PMNewman
