What it Really takes to Get a Girl in Bed…

A full moon.  On the wall.


The rest of the galaxy on the ceiling.


A salt rock light.


Spa music to set the tone.


Proper bedding.  Namely pinky, bluey, and the Disney souvenir blanket.


A dream catcher.


More mood lighting.


A shit-ton of giant-eyed stuffed animals, not to be confused with regular stuffed animals (plenty of them also), because these are “sniffers.”  They sniff you to wake you up in the morning.  After they sing the Good Morning song.


A zebra pillow.  And Lamby.


So the girl is ultimately buried in a sea of toys under a starry sky, in a fully lit room


Even Mr. Big Bear is ashamed of what it takes to get this one girl in bed.



  1. Cute.

  2. So low maintenance?

  3. Aww, love this.

  4. Soooooooo…….your daughter’s high maintenance?? Or did I read this wrong? lol

  5. I can’t imagine where she gets her silliness from….oh where oh where could it be? You two ladies make me smile, so thanks for that.

    • Whattttt???? She’s way more high maintenance than me. Sort of. Okay probably not. I don’t know. Nevermind. You’re awesome – happy Friday!!! XO

  6. They are SO particular! Mine’s got that same pile of big eyed animals, along with about a million other ones. It’s always a disaster when that one, specific, Mom-why-don’t-you-remember-him stuffed pet can’t be found.

  7. Absolutely loved this, Molly 😉 It really hit home with me. My youngest daughter turned 13 yesterday, and I spent all day re-doing her room while she was at school — you know, making it more “grown up.” After the big reveal, she was SO excited! Then after a pause she asked, “Where are my stuffed animals?”

    I do have a question though: What good is a salt lamp if there aren’t any margaritas? 😉

    • Hahahahhaha I love it!!! She sounds awesome – are you tripping that she’s a teenager????

      I’m installing a wet bar in Anna’s room. That margarita notion was brilliant.

      • She is awesome, and yes I am freaking out a little. Our oldest daughter, 19, just moved out a few months ago. So we moved our youngest into “the big room.” I was playing music while working on it, and I SWEAR every song was about “time going by too fast” or “looking back”! Of course, I should have stuck with AC/DC and not switched to country…

      • Uggg music makes that kind of stuff so much harder!!! Why does that always happen???

  8. Those big-eyed animals are still staring at me. 😦

  9. Hm, better the ton of animals for now – than in later years the one animalic guy …

  10. But I bet she sleeps well!

  11. HAHAHA this was great, so creative. My kid is obsessed with bug-eyed stuffed animals and I still don’t understand the attraction. Waking up to those things would be creepy as hell.

  12. Not to scare you or anything, but mine is 24 and she pretty much sleeps the same way. 🙂

  13. I’m not sure I could sleep with those big-eyed stuffed animals. Ha ha. Loved this, Molly.

  14. So cute!

  15. And even after all that and you finally get her to bed, doesn’t she suddenly need to pee or get water? I’m having flashbacks of my kid’s rituals! 🙂

  16. You know this was kind of a buzz kill, right? You baited us with that title.

  17. That stuff works??????

  18. Wow, I am going to go out and buy a whole stack of big-eyed stuffed animals and glow in the dark astro stuff tomorrow.

    This is guaranteed, right?

  19. Hahaha that is adorable! Reminds me of my nieces 🙂

  20. Not what I expected, but brilliant nonetheless, Molly!
