Beautiful Bed

A couple of days ago Ella came in our room at what I deemed to be too early an hour in the morning. "Go get back in your bed," I mumbled and turned over. When I heard the rustling of paper in our room a few minutes later I assumed she had brought in a bunch of books to look at while she waited for us to wake up. I drifted in and out of consciousness for about another half an hour while she occupied herself on the floor beside my bed. She was trying to be quiet, but I'm a very light sleeper and the noise finally got me out of bed. "Ella, you're up too early," I told her. "Mommy, I had to get up early so I could make your bed beautiful!" she said proudly as she pointed at the bed. She hadn't been reading after all--she had been sticking an entire bucket of foam stickers all over the only nice furniture in the house-our bedroom set. The best part is she used the Old Testament themed stickers that my aunt had unwittingly bought her so that she could make crafts on our last vacation. Now that Noah and his ark full of animals are watching, I fear our marriage bed will never be the same.
