I am not sure that I REALLY knew how to make a bed until I took a job as a
Not so much.
I once read that your bed take up about 1/3 of your room. If you just make your bed you have already cleaned 1/3 of your room and that can really make a a huge difference. Well, it's true. The calm that it brings to our room is totally palpable. It becomes more sanctuary rather than stress-inducing.
I am trying to work on the same habits with Miss L each day. It is quite difficult to make her bed at this point in time because there are rails on her bed (which we are toying with taking off) to keep her from falling. So, we make due with what we can do in folding the cover neatly at the end of the bed and arranging her menagerie of stuffed animals at the head of the bed. She's pretty funny because she wants to be all over the bed when I am changing sheets and she wants to pull the covers off when I am folding them at the bottom. Oh well. We will press on. At this point repetition makes practice and practice eventually will make perfect.
At least I will be able to teach her proper hospital corners. Folding a fitted sheet? Well, that's another story.
