So do you make your bed daily? What about your kids, do you require theirs are made (whether they do it or you/someone else)? By 'making the bed', I mean fully arranging all bedding including a
spread or comforter or whatever you have. I'm not referring to changing/washing the bedding
on a regular basis.
The reason I ask is I commented elsewhere on the subject...I metioned I very rarely make my bed and I don't require the kids to do so either. You'd have thought from the comments back that I had confessed to cannibalism or something equally horrifying.
Personally, I think it's one of the silliest, most time-wasting tasks to do. We are just going to get back in it that night. No one is going to see them. I pick up the pillows DH throws on the floor during the night and toss them back on the bed (he is a crazy sleeper). But otherwise...I don't think it's necessary. I just don't see the point. So if you do make the bed-why? Do you really care about it or is it just a habit?
(And yes, I change the sheets on a regular basis, and I'm not lazy or a slob or dirty-the house/possessions are taken care of, clean, picked up, fairly organized, etc. )
Edit-When i say we don't make the bed, I don't mean that the sheets and blankets are laying in a big wad and/or hanging over the edge. My side stays pretty neat all night; DH's looks like whirlwind hit it, but we both pull them straight as we get out of bed. So we aren't getting into a giant mess at night, I can't do that either. They aren't perfect but are essentially straight, are tucked in properly, and are not lumpy/wadded/twisted up or anything. Well except for DS, as he literally forms a burrow of his bedding, I have all but welded the bedding in at night and he still manages to make his little nest in his sleep, so we just straighten but not re-tuck everything and I don't force the issue.
