We went Big Girl Bed Shopping yesterday, and can I just tell you: if you are looking for an indoor activity your preschooler will love, take her to a furniture store and let her run around and try out every bed, couch, and chair in sight.
Of course, we only did this because we were actually, you know, shopping for furniture. I’m just saying, should you be in the market for a couch or a coffee table or even a coat rack, take your kid along. Ours was delirious with joy from start to finish.
Plus, we found just the bed for Zoe! We proceeded directly to Target, where we got two sets of sheets and a Percy the train pee wee pillow pet that cost more than the sheets (Zoe made all the selections, which is a little surprising since she does not actually enjoy watching Thomas and Friends, but there’s no accounting for taste). It was a great family outing all around.
Now, we just have to wait until January 24th for the bed to arrive. Zoe doesn’t seem to mind, although she did ask, as we drove away in our little Saturn, “Where’s the bed?”
All in good time, little / big girl. All in good time.
