So Kathleen vacated the pack-n-play, now a little dished out on the bottom, for her little sister Sophia. Despite 9 additional months of residence in our duplex, we never got around to buying a real crib for Sophia either because when plans were finally made clear, any crib that we would have bought would have gone into storage anyway.
One day last week, however, something came in the mail. It was heavy, it was
made of wood, and when we put it together, it looked suspiciously like a crib, the kind that has to be bolted together and can't fold up to fit in one's trunk. Yes, after over two and half years of children, we finally own a crib. It's not full sized, but it also isn't made of polyester fabric either. We all have to take baby steps.
