Yeah, we might end up going that route. I got the idea here: http://www.younghouselove.com/2012/01/claras-christmas-kitchen/ And I've wanted to make one ever since. There's some pretty extravagant ones on pinterest, and since DH works at Rona, a lot of the little things to make it seem "real" are pretty cheap. But again... we'll see how it actually pans out!
Oh and yes! I read your escapades with Ava and I can just SEE my future!! lol
So, had a 3.5 hour stretch of sleep last night!! This was after almost an hour of screaming, but you know... small victories! That's two longer stretches in the last week and a half or so! But-- both of them have been while in bed with us. So, I mean, still more sleep than if I was getting up every hour with her in crib, but not great. But I mean, we've always said that if she were sleeping substantially better in bed than in her crib, then we would just... figure it out. So if we find that this starts happening regularly, then we'll find some option that works. Which I guess means a new bed, because I still can't figure out the space for the side carred crib. The only thing I thought of was butting my side of the bed up against the wall. I'm wondering if that would help.
Ok, I went and dug up photos. So, same view obviously, looking in from the door. At the foot of the bed in this photo, is the closet- It's maybe 3 feet from the foot? And then just to the left of the chair, you can see the vent on the floor that we can't cover up. The bed is pushed all the way into the wall in this photo. That chair is gone, but there's a dresser than runs almost that whole wall now.
This is the current layout. You can see how the vent is just barely not covered by the bed, but if we push the bed into the corner this way, then it would cover up too much of it. We could fit a sidecar in on that side of the bed, but we're not left with much space on the close side- which is where we need to get into our closet. So I -think- if we tried to sidecar it would have to be this way, and just be really snug trying to get clothes, and if we pushed the bed against the wall, it would have to be the first way.
LOL I think I'm talking myself in circles!
