Sometimes, there are grand benefits to having a bed so low it could win any limbo contest hands down.
2. No need to walk around the bed to get to the other side of the room. Think of it as an obtuse rug, always wanting to be the center of attention.
3. Makes a great buffer pad for the girls for practicing somersaults and flips. OK, so it's not just for the girls. I just taught the reverse somersault roll to the girls last night. The expressions on their faces told me they thought I should try out immediately for Cirque Du Soleil. Yeah. I'm that good.
4. The girls read on that bed a lot. Just like this. I do find myself pinning away sometimes for a nice bed frame with a hand made headboard (like this one), but that day will come when it comes.
Thankful for quiet moments, and the knowledge that each day is a gift.
