Today’s waffle: making the bed

Posted on

My son, Will, asked me the inevitable question last week…

“Mom, why do I have to make the bed everyday if I’m just going to get into it and mess it up again every night?”  

Did you think his question was going to be about where babies come from?  Actually, I think I did better answering that one a few years back than I did with the bed question.  He just wasn’t buying my response of, “Well, when I walk into a room with a made bed it just makes me feel happy and organized and ready to start the day.”

It’s true — I just feel better when the bed is made.  Even if I don’t have time to make it in the morning I’ll do it when I come home, even if it’s late in the afternoon.  Then again, I do tend towards the OCD…

What about you?  What’s your relationship to bed-making?
