A Bedroom Divided

Usually at bedtime there is a scripted commotion in the bedroom.  Anderson is often climbing onto Parker and Carter's beds, jumping around, and sometimes even biting them for kicks. Sometimes I go up there and tell Anderson to shape up.  Other times we let Parker and Carter lay in our bed until Anderson conks out without them.  Yesterday, Parker and Carter created their own solution.

Man the Barricades!

If you look you can see that Parker and Carter built a barricade against Anderson and then bunkered down for the night.  Safe from the wrath of their pugnacious younger brother, they were able to get a good night's sleep.  And Anderson?  He was happily sprawled across his bed, his toys covering the room, pleased with himself for the territory he won.  I'm not sure who to be more proud of: Anderson for successfully claiming the majority of surface area in the room, including three beds, or Parker and Carter for their rock solid fort that Anderson was unable to topple.  And in a year and a half, when we toss Beckett in there, who knows what will happen?
