wrists, ribbons, and beds oh my!

Okay so what do you do when you find your daughter tied up to her bed? Well in normal circumstances you'd be afraid but in this situation you have to LAUGH!!!!

Last night we tried to get Sierra to go to bed and stay there for about two hours.
We would put her in bed. She would come out later and want something to drink.
We put her back into bed. She would come out and say she was hungry.
We put her back into bed. She would come out again.

Finally, I told her to get to bed and stay there or she's be in trouble. She looks at me and says, "mommy, my body says it can't stay in bed. Maybe I should tie myself to it." I laughed and left.

About an hour later, I go to check on her and what do I see? Her little wrist has a green and black ribbon tied around it. So I go to take it off and it's stuck to something. What??? It was tied to the bed!! She really truly tied herself to the bed to keep herself there. I had to cover up my mouth and run out of the room because I was bursting inside with laughter.

This morning I asked her why she did that, and her reply was, "I didn't want my body to run away from the bed so I tied myself to it!" arlighty then. I was speechless.
