She's not really a hoarder in any other sense...just in the sense that she loves to squirrel things away in her bed. In this picture we see a box of Kleenex (always), some miscellaneous social stories (light bedtime reading), and our cordless phone handset (co-sleeping with electro-magnetic fields will not meet Dad's approval).
Not too bad, right?

But then you lift up the pillow, and oh what's this?
2 headbands, a cupcake soap, emery boards (which she calls her popsicle sticks), an empty tube of Carmex, and a partridge in a pear tree.
Things that used to be there that have been removed: two sets of swim goggles (prized birthday gifts, but perhaps a choking hazard), a cotton-candy-scented Smencil (waking-up-with-a-lead-pencil-embedded-in-an-artery hazard), and full tubes of Carmex and toothpaste (obv).
I'm not quite sure what all of these items mean to Audrey. I understand some of them, but others...not so much. Hopefully, these are all things that, for whatever reason, she loves and treasures. And hopefully that will always be her criteria for having things in bed with her.
