I took this picure right after I tucked Dominic in last night. You wouldn't think, looking at it, that the bed was SUPER crowded, as you only see the heads of his Large Mr Bear, and his ghost.
This is what the BED really looks like. (What you don't see in this picture is the Egg shaped rock that he tucks lovingly under Mr Bears armpit every night)
Most nights a fair number of his "friends" end up pushed all the way down to the bottom of the bed or on the floor, but he will not settle down for sleep without being able to cuddle them all. (side note, yes, those are Dora sheets. he LOVES them, and tells me all about the puppy (there's a puppy on the pillow case with dora).
I mentioned this habit at one point to Alpine and they offered to give us some tools to help him not need his animals to go to sleep, but honestly, this is the LEAST of our concerns around Dominic's behavior, and frankly, its JUST CUTE.
