The new bed

15 May

We were going to put the kids in their own rooms when we moved, but they didn’t want to be by themselves, so we didn’t.  They have been together in the same room for about a year and a half now, so it’s understandable that they wouldn’t want to be alone.

Instead, they can share until Hannah’s 7 or so, and in the mean time, we will have a spare room.  Something that will come in very handy when Aunty Jess and/or Uncle Jim come to visit from Adelaide, and even more handy when my parents come to visit one day.

Currently, the room is full of junk.  Ok, not actual junk, but the stuff that we didn’t need immediately and dumped in there when we needed to give all the boxes back to the movers and hadn’t yet had the time to actually unpack them.  I’m sure you can imagine the state it’s in.  We just kind of shut the door and ignore it, never wanting to give up our hour and a half of freedom each night after the kids go to bed and before I go to bed, to do something so tedious and boring.

But, The Jess and Jim are coming.  This Sunday.  (I wrote this post last week, so that statement is no longer true…)

We bought a bed for in there, and after the driver failed to call me to give me a delivery window as he was supposed to, and then delivered 2 boxes containing the same bed head, and 0 boxes containing a bed foot, then came back and switched boxes so we’d have a complete bed instead of 2 half beds, we now have a spare bed.

In a box in the living room. And a spare mattress,  leaning against the wall.  The room is still too full to actually put them in there.

The kids, however, were delighted when they came home from daycare and preschool to find a big mattress in the living room.  To them, it meant only one thing: “CLIMBING!!!!”

How does a little kid climb up a mattress that’s leaning against a wall at a very steep angle, you ask? Well, I won’t waste words describing it for you, I’ll show you instead:

Tonight we’d better start cleaning up the spare room….

    Reminds me of sliding down a mattress at a cousin’s house once when I was a kid. Only that one was long way down the mattress, which was leaning up against some built-in shelves in a wall that made a great ladder.

    I’m sure those kids can sleep well with their new mattress comfortably after they race… LOL!
