We got dad’s shaving cream, which smells great and feels…smushy.

I made some castle turrets (!!) with shaving cream; we added fairies. It was as good for me as it was for her!

We added friends of different sizes, and ..

we put them to bed!

Sleeping on a cloud has become one of my go-to images for trying to sleep.

Think about sleeping on a puffy cloud, look at her laying there, smell her all wrapped up in yum.

Girlfriends came over, they had a slumber party.

Next time you can’t sleep, remember the fairy cloud castle slumber party.

You’ll be glad you did!
