A New Bed, Attempting to Crawl, and A Trip to the Dentist

Well, this has been a busy week with lots of stuff going on.

Boo Boo Bear
After several nights off Boo falling out of her toddler bed, she finally got a big girl bed this week. Actually she got the top half of the bunkbed that she and her brother Bug are going to share. Unfortunately, I was a little slow in gettting the frame put together, so the first night she slept on a mattress that was on top of the bunk bed shipping box. It was still pretty cute none the less. Once the real bed was up, she was thrilled. Oddly enough, her bed is now taller than her brothers'. For some reason I didn'r realize/remember that the legs of the bed would be taller to allow for head room once the beds are put together. Oh well, have I mentioned that she is a little monkey. She just grabbed ahold of the guard rail and flung herself right over. And for any safety natzis that might be reading this, no she will not be on the top bunk once they are put together.

Her other activity of the week has been throwing tea parties. I have had tea with bears, Barney, Barbie, and her cousins M & M from Iowa( they were not really here but she misses them and thus pretends that they visit).

Blurg a.k.a. Fuzzy Duck a.k.a. Minnie Me
Little Blurg has been trying really hard to crawl. She drags herself along with one arm really well. At least well enough that she can go from room to room. And she can get up on her hands and knees, she just can't cooridinate the movements. And today she tried to pull herself up on the couch trim and failed thus gaining her first motility battle scar. It is a beautiful goose egg on the noggin. She was definately more angry and hurt. She is a tough little fuzzy duck. Now if I can only convince Boo Boo that her little sister is not a bank, life will be good.

Bugga Bugga Boy
And as are all things with our Bug, our trip to the dentist this week was fun. Bug needed to get a filling in between his molars. Most kids, even older ones would freak out a little but not Bug. We walked in, he greeted the receptionist and and got himself signed in. After a little small talk, he went over to check out the fish tank. He then announced that 2 fish were dead. One receptionist was a little concerned, the other was stunned. Why? Because, he was right. Between his appointement 2 weeks ago and this week, two fish had died. When asked how he knew he said, "Last time there were 13 and this time there are only 11. Will there only be 9 left the next time I come in?"

They chatted more. Then one asked if he liked sports. His response (as he jogged in place on a chair), "I like running. Did you know that runners from Kenya are some of the fastest in the world?" That's our Bug.

He also likes basketball . It's fun to dribble but he can't make a basket. He also got to talk about his trip to CA when he was 2 and his most recent trip to Iowa. That is where his favorite cousin Mac lives. He proceeded to talk about all the things they like to do together, jumping on the bed, off the furniture, etc. Bug and Mac are only 6 months apart and look and act more like brothers. And now everyone at the dentist office knows about it.

There are many other funny stories of the week but they'll have to wait. Plus, I need to start/finish my rant about Magnet schools. Hee Hee Hee.

I never realised how important a good bed was until I got a bad back�.
Over 1,400 members of BackCare, the national organisation for healthy backs, responded to our Back Your Bed survey - the first of its kind to explore the views on beds of those who suffer from bad backs and the experts who treat them.
Buying a good bed is one of the most important purchases you can make when it comes to back pain relief. Nine out of 10 say their bed is more important to them since they developed back pain; 98% agreed that a good, supportive bed could help a bad back. 82% of experts felt that the right bed could help prevent back pain.
"If you cannot rest properly and sleep well, this hinders recovery from back problems."
A firm, supportive bed, not a hard one, can do wonders to ease and even prevent bad backs. Only 22% of sufferers had bought a bed classed as �orthopaedic�; while 28% describe their bed support as �medium�. Only 6% of experts would recommend an orthopaedic bed to patients.

Three quarters would be prepared to spend more than �500 on a new bed: compared with just 36% of the �normal� population. Nearly one in 10 would pay more than �2,000 for a new bed to get the comfort and relief they need.
Back pain sufferers are twice as likely as the rest of the population to own a new bed - 50% have beds that are less than five years old compared to the national average of 24%.
88% are satisfied with their choice � but 16% said they would get a better quality one next time; while 9% would opt for something firmer; 5% said they would choose a softer bed and 4% wanted a bigger one.

Sufferers are three times more likely to replace their beds when they no longer feel comfortable (65% compared with just 20%).
31% own a king size bed compared with 11% generally. Separate mattresses zipped together are also popular with couples whose support needs differ or who are easily disturbed by their partner's movements. top
So worth considering when buying a

Choosing the right Bed: Bedcare
Proper care will keep your bed in good condition. Always read and retain manufacturers care instructions and ask your retailer for advice, too. Otherwise, the following tips will help you to get the best out of your bed during its natural life.
Use a washable, protective cover to protect the mattress (and pillows) from stains. Barrier fabrics for allergy sufferers are also available.
In the mornings, throw back the bed clothes and leave the bed to air for 20 minutes to allow body moisture to evaporate.
Turning your mattress over from side and side and end to end every few months (every week for the first three months) helps upholstery fillings to settle down more evenly. Some more luxurious mattresses, with much thicker layers of fillings designed to mould themselves to the contours of your body, may retain signs of these impressions, despite turning.
Don�t make a habit of sitting on the edge of the bed and don�t let the kids bounce on it.
Don�t roll up or squash a mattress to store or transport it - this can cause permanent damage.
Handles are designed to help you position a mattress on its base - do not use them to support the full weight of the mattress - they may pull out and damage the fabric.
Don�t leave polythene wrappings on a new mattress - dampness, mildew and rotting could all result from a build-up of condensation.
Vacuum your mattress and base from time to time to remove fluff and dust. This should be carefully done so as not to dislodge fillings or damage tufts. Open windows while vacuuming -especially if there is an asthma sufferer in the house.
When tackling stains, use mild detergent and warm or cold water. Never over soak a mattress or base.
Putting a new mattress on a base for which it was not intended, a new mattress on an old base or a board between the mattress and base can impede comfort and reduce the useful life of the mattress - as well as affecting any guarantees or warranties.
Out with the Old: Once you�ve bough yourself a new bed, make arrangements to have the old one disposed of (many retailers will do this for you). Don�t give it to the children, relatives, guests or neighbours. If it wasn�t good enough for you, it�s not good enough for anyone else, either. In fact, it�s a veritable health hazard - get rid of it
Definately something to think about if you plan to buy a
