Yes, of course I bought that for you

I purchased this rocker at a yard sale for $5. I love it! Baby girl loves it! The cat…..loves it! The actual seat part is the perfect size for her. So once again, Buddy has claimed another piece of furniture as her own.



No, seriously. Mine.

No, seriously. Mine.


Big Girl And Her Big Girl Bed

Monday morning, we had a very special delivery.  Big girl’s big-girl-mattress and Mommy and Daddy’s new mattress arrived.  So far the transition to big-girl bed has gone a lot smoother than I thought it would.  It actually helps that she hasn’t taken really great naps during the day.  That way, she is much more tired at bed time and less likely to run around her room.  Although….she did spend the first 15 minutes of bedtime on Monday running in her room and then jumping back into bed when I opened the door.


Big Girl’s Big Bed. Well, actually just her mattress. Once she masters the mattress, we’ll bring her twin bed in.

Spring Break! Woo! – Part 2

Today we purchased new mattresses – twin size for little girl and queen size for us.  For someone (me) who has only ever had twin or full sized mattresses, this is a huge deal!  That also means that we are in the process of completing some of the tasks that I wrote about in yesterday’s post.  The mattresses will be delivered tomorrow so we can begin to have little girl sleep on her new mattresses with her new sheets and blanket.  And, Ryan has been moving furniture and other miscellaneous stuff into the garage to prep for the new mattresses coming tomorrow.  So yay!

Sometimes…I wish I was a cat….

Seriously.  Cats have the best life in the world.  If I could come back in another life as any animal, I would definitely choose a house cat.  All that they do is eat, poop, sleep, eat, sleep, eat, drink, chase a shadow or an insect, eat, sleep, yawn, sleep.  That’s a difficult life, right?

Recently, I have been having a hard time sleeping soundly.  I toss and turn but can’t get really comfortable in bed.  Ryan and I are going to try to set up our big comfy chair in a way that would be comfy for sleeping.

While I’m thinking about when I’ll try to go to sleep tonight, I look around and realize that this is not a problem that cats ever have.




Even the most uncomfortable looking spots can be made comfortable by a cat.

Perfectly comfortable

Shoe box? Or comfy bed?

Oh well.  Hopefully, tonight I’ll only wake up a couple times.  And when I do, hopefully, I won’t trip on a sleeping cat.
