An Unlikely Nap Locale

I know people who have spent an absolute fortune on baby cribs.  Our crib is from IKEA and was purchased for $99.  It’s pretty basic.  You can adjust the height to two different levels.  You can also make it into a junior bed by taking one of the sides completely off.  Last week, I took the one side off of Lil C’s bed and she’s been sleeping like a "big girl" ever since. . . once she’s asleep that is.

IKEA has been the store of choice for much of our furniture.  My living room is entirely IKEA, as is my bedroom and Lil C’s room.  It’s affordable and functional; but visiting the store can be a bit frustrating.  My parents once stood in line for hours waiting for a toy chest for Lil C’s room.  We have already taken things home to find out that we were missing screws, special IKEA screws that only IKEA people manufacture and you therefore can not find them at Home Depot, requiring a repeat trip. 

When all is said and done though, I must admit that my IKEA furniture can take some serious abuse. . . 

Lil C insisted that I get in bed with her tonight to "cuddle for a minute," and I figured if only for a minute, it wouldn’t be a big deal.  Tonight, I feel asleep in Lil C’s crib/junior bed with her.  I woke up an hour and a half later. 

Can’t find Mommy?  I’ll be napping in the crib.  It’s really quite comfortable.
