We lost a bunch of our stuff when Hurricane Irene generously dumped 10 1/2 feet of water in our house, including a couple toddler beds that we were storing in the basement.
So a friend, who was getting rid of her kid’s toddler bed, offered it to me. I said, “Hell, yes.”
And then she actually wanted me to pick it up.
Which seemed really exhausting because you know, it’s a bed.
One morning I thought about sending Rick over to pick it up but I think he was consumed with watching Kathy Lee & Hoda and I hated to interrupt him.
And anyway, I thought a much easier plan of action would be to skip the whole “manual labor” thing and have either Chase or Harlowe just go over and sleep at my friend’s house when the time came for them to transition into a toddler bed.
But then the other night, we got back from a Passover seder at my in-laws and found this…
Yes, that’s a toddler bed on my lawn.
No delivery charge apparently.
So I guess when Chase and Harlowe are done with their cribs, I can just have one of them sleep in the yard.
mama bird notes:
Hope you all had a great holiday. These are my two favorite videos from the weekend. The first is Chase wearing a makeshift Easter bonnet…
And this is my in-laws and kids doing dance Wii on Easter morning. Right after we ate mountains of Easter candy and fried Matzoh. Who do you think had the best moves?
