We haven't forgotten though. Bunk beds are ordered and on their way... from Denmark! It took a little while to find the perfect bunk beds that suited my taste and budget - not an easy task at all! By the time I finally decided to place an order the bunk beds were out of stock nation wide with the distributor and we've had to wait for the next shipment which, fingers crossed, will set sail any day now. Let's just hope that ship uses an engine rather than sails!
Anyway, in the meantime Ava has been sleeping on an Aerobed inflatable mattress. We've been pretty happy with the Aerobed as a temporary bed for Ava, however in the last month it has developed "speed bumps". Speed bumps? On a bed? I'm not exactly sure how to describe what has happened to the bed but it does look like it has speed bumps, and trust me, it's about as comfortable as sleeping over a speed bump. Poor Ava.
So with the Aerobed all but destroyed (I'm hoping there will be an easy fix) and the bunk beds a month away from delivery we found ourselves a little stuck. Or at least I thought we were stuck until the logical solution was pointed out to me - have Ava's mattress delivered now instead of waiting for the bunk beds to arrive. So simple. Why didn't I think of that?
Ava's new Sopora mattress was scheduled for delivery yesterday and we were all excited waiting for its arrival. I'd been advised by the store I ordered it from that the foam mattress would be delivered with the air compressed out of it and I couldn't wait to see just how squished it would be.
Sure enough, the mattress arrived squished into a box. You wouldn't believe that a mattress would fit inside such a box, but it did.
