New Mattress for Marnie!

So when Kris and I got married Kris had a king size bed. I had been given a California queen which is kind of an awkward size, but it was the most comfortable bed. But when I moved out I left my bed and took a standard queen that was older, but I also knew that it would only serve as a guest bed. I had put a feather mattress on top of it to make it really comfortable, which worked out well when it was a guest bed because I didn't have to make it all the time. I love those feather mattresses, but making the bed is such a pain. You have to unmake the whole bed, and when you are just using it for a guest bed that works because you have to do that anyway, well when we move Molly to a big bed that is the bed we put her in. It was such a pain to make it, so I took off the feather mattress. On that bed is really bad with out that extra feather mattress on it. And it's totally loud! If you were laying by Molly and she fell asleep you had no chance getting out of there with out waking her up. I did have to sleep by her one night and that's when I asked Kris if we could get her a new bed. He responded... I know it's bad huh? He had been thinking the same thing. So we have been on the hunt for a new bed for Molly. We finally found one that we liked. We paid a little more that we had hoped, but we also want to have it till she moves out. Well it finally came late in the afternoon on Wednesday and it was even later by the time I had gone to the store for a mattress pad for it. It was way past bed time by the time we got her bed made and her tucked in. But I said "maybe we should lay by you?" She thought that would be cool and Kris was on one side while I put Stella next to Molly and I was next to Stella. We sang several songs and Molly sang along with us while Stella smiled and bounced the whole time. She was loving being a part of the action and Molly was loving just as much. I loved that moment. I wish I could freeze it forever. For all of us to be together, no one crying and singing ABC's, Monkeys swinging in the tree, 5 Little Ducks, and I am a Child of God, Hearing Molly's little voice sing every word, those are the moments I never want to forget, all of the worries of the world, the stressed of the day and everything else just melts away, and nothing else matters. Those are my favorite moments in life! There is a picture of us all pretending to sleep, I love that Molly is pretending to be asleep, and that Stella missed the memo ha ha ha!
