We've Been Invaded


Okay, so my daughter Sophie finally has her first BIG GIRL mattress. And I want to emphasize the BIG part of that statement. BIG just doesn't seem to capture the essence of the monster that has taken over a massive portion of my daugther's room. We were thinking "hey, let's get our little girl a nice plush-top to add cushy to her tushy." So we purchased a "kid's mattress" set from our "shopping club"(don't get me started on reasons why you should NEVER, I mean, NEVER EVER join a shopping club). So we never saw this beast before we purchased, figuring we'll save $100-200. In it comes this morning. And yes, as I said before, it is a "kid's mattress set". The thing is easily as tall as she is. The little blue step stool (above) gets her so she can then step on the box spring which then almost gets her on the mattress. And we didn't want to get her a bunkbed because she might fall out and hurt herself. Now we're not so sure that the bunkbed wouldn't be lower. Hmm. And what about sheets? Do you buy an extra set? Do they have a big and tall shop for bedding? I'm not and anti-plushite, but it concerns me that these giants may be taking over. Unwittingly, I have aided their cause. I better go and check on my daughter...

Would make a great episode of Dora, seeing what adventures she goes through to get in "Highrise" bed!
