Ouch! What The... Crap my Toddler Hides in my Bed

Oh, but they hid it UNDER the covers!

Last Sunday night I climbed into bed expecting to go right to sleep. Then I pulled the covers back and found a pethora of shit.

Not actual shit, but a ton of stuff that my two year old had planted there while my husband slept, and he was supposed to be sleeping. Little did I know my husband let him come into the bedroom, and he left behind a trail.

I found two matchbox cars, a fire truck, my chapstick with the cap missing and a bite taken out of it, puzzle pieces, the Shrek DVD, a reptile, and a damn partridge in a pear tree. No lie!

Of course I thought to myself — I cannot be the only mother of a toddler that has found crap like this laying in her bed when she goes to jump in for the night, so I put a call out to readers for their funny items, and of course included a couple of my own from the past week, as well as blasts from the past!

I want you guys to comment with the funniest/strangest stuff your kids have hid in your bed too!
I find it hysterical to know I am not the only one out there with toddlers who are sneaky!

    I can only imagine finding half eaten chocolate in my bed!
    This was a reality for Jamie. Her daughter told her she was "saving it for later!"

  • Rocks! 2 of 8
    Rocks... YES!
    You heard me right! Rocks!
    Earlier in the year I was working on a craft project with the kids that included rocks we collected at the beach.
    Well a couple of those ended up in my bed! Photo Credit: Flickr

  • That Cell Phone… 4 of 8
    That Cell Phone...
    You know the cell phone you have been looking for all day long.
    The ones your toddler figured out how to put on silent and hid right by your feet.
    So you finally find it with 60 missed calls, a dozen text messages, and something that appears to be cheese stuck to it?

    A Dirty Diaper!
    I have to admit, when I opened my inbox to see this one submitted by Kelly. I cannot even imagine pulling my sheets to find it!
    I get the icky creeps just thinking about it! Photo Credit: Flickr
  • A Used Bandaid 6 of 8
    A Used Bandaid
    Yes, you read that right!
    A used bandaid. You know it has happened to you before too.
    Toddler in question gets into your bed with a bandaid on... and leaves without the bandaid.
    Only for you to wake up the next morning with a random used bandaid stuck to you in some random spot.

    I can't imagine the kind of crumby mess this would leave behind!
    Or even the kind of grossness the gooey inside would leave!

  • Light Saber 8 of 8
    Light Saber
    May the force be with you!
    This one was submitted by @YEGMAMA on twitter and I couldn't help but laugh.
