Friends in High Places

We bought a new bed today, and it looked perfectly proportional in the store. At home, it feels very, very tall. Good thing I'm not claustrophobic, because the ceiling looks a lot closer. If I have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, I think I might have to sleep the rest of the night on the floor. It'd be too risky to climb it without assistance.

Seriously, it's not that high, but I bought the last bed in the dark ages, before SwingDaddy and I were dating, and mattresses have taken a dramatic turn for the puffy since then.

We invited Q's little friend TayTay and her parents over for dinner tonight and had a splendid time. The kids decided they wanted to try to reach the chandelier, and Q brought out a few stepstools to help Tay in the attempt. After a while we convinced them that even if they were to find a ladder tall enough, it probably wasn't a good idea. Perhaps an art project instead?

Now I need to go wash out a bunch of plastic Easter eggs so we can fill them for tomorrow!

P.S. The quarterly emergency preparedness check will be later this week due to brain overflow.

Cool! I can't wait to see the new bedding too. The higher bed does take some getting used to.

Nice easel :)

Maybe you could use one of those stepstools next to the bed? My mother LOVES her tall bed, but is all of 5'2" when she stretches. She bought one of the nicer-looking kiddie stepstools at Target. It's darker wood, with two steps.

Thought it might be a useful idea, because I don't know how an expecting mother makes it through the night without getting up. I've always had to get up in the night to use the bathroom... but I was waking up at 2 a.m. absolutely starving after about month 5 in my pregnancy with Jet. I would eat a huge bowl of froot loops and go back to bed. :)

So freaking adorable!

I wish I lived close enough for a playdate.

Ditto Jenny. I love the look of concentration on Q's face in that photo!

Be careful with the big girl bed!

Our bed seems high, too, even though it has very low clearance! It's the advent of pillow-tops, I think.

So now I'll call you the "princess and the pea"! Look at Q, he's growing up so fast!
