We’re selling the cot

November 5, 2007

It’s been a good cot. Lovely warm, beeswax rubbed wood. Tasty, too, looking at the way it’s been used as a teething ring. Nice. Easy to build (that’s important) and easy to dismantle and reconfigure… and now it’s going.

It’s a bit sad, but then I know how cool the new bunkbeds look and how the girls are enjoying those. Of course, the instructions for the bunkbeds do say “Nobody under the age of six shall sleep in these bunkbeds” and neither child quite makes it to six just yet but hey, it’ll sort the wheat out from the chaff as it were. So it’s not all bad.

Having linked to the Skydeck cartoons for marketing in an earlier post, I thought I’d stick this one in here. It’s very right. Also, Sarah at Porter Novelli is off to have her baby soon and we’re having lunch tomorrow to wish her well and she doesn’t need to see things like that. Don’t look, Sarah. Don’t look!

    Yep, we ditched the cot, and the boys are now both in a bunk bed now. The bunk bed doubles as a climbing frame, so now we don’t have to buy a jungle-gym.

    The boys seem to bounce, so the girls will probably be fine.

    We bought them a swing set for Xmas last year – they use it as a climbing frame… I’m concerned the younger one will grow up to have a tail and will be able to make three people redundant with her deft use of the mouse (apologies to Dilbert) but I might be reaching there.

    When Hannah was about 5, Rob and I managed to convince her for about half a day that she had been born with a tail..she still hasn’t forgiven us for that.

    but but… I have it in a jar on my desk for all to see! That’s Hannah’s tail, I cry. There’s a tale behind that tail don’t you know.

    and such a pretty tail/tale it is too. 🙂
