Also, even though it isn't a nightly occurrence, we occasionally end up with small children sharing our bed space.
So we upgraded to a king sized Tempurpedic. It has taken some getting used to and in the beginning my back hurt more when I woke up than before. But from what we read and what we were told while out shopping, these beds are made to get you/keep you aligned. I'm hoping that the new pain is only temporary as my back lines itself up and stays that way. (I must say it is already starting to feel better here in recent mornings.)
And yes, there is a lot more room for children now. No more fear of rolling over and squishing a little one. No longer will a parent cling to the edge of the bed hoping a stray foot doesn't send them tumbling to the floor. (Although for the first time the other morning we ended up in the H position .... Biju on one side, me on the other and Alex laying perpendicular in the middle!)
Here are the boys breaking in the new bed. We were actually told to let them bounce on the bed the day it was delivered to "break open those cell walls" so the bed wouldn't be too firm.
|If you're inclined to believe such things you might wonder if there was "someone else" bouncing on the bed with the boys that day!! (See the orb to the left of Alex?)|
We're still keepin' the bed, though.
And here is my favorite picture that I took of the boys that day:
