My son loves his Ikea Over The Bed Mattress. It is such a great design that I think he might sleep in it the whole night. I can see how it would make him happy, but he also loves to play on it and run his hands and legs all over it. So last week, I bought him one for his birthday. I know that I’ve made him happy and he looks forward to getting off the bed.
The Ikea Over The Bed Table is made from a lovely Swedish Ceramic. It has a black and silver trim. When we were buying it, I asked him what he liked about it. He said that it was nice and that it was a nice size for him to be able to get around on. That is pretty typical of kids. They like to play and run around in all their toys, especially their favorite tables.
I actually took him and his friends to buy it, but they were too excited. I guess it is because they are always telling me how much stuff they’ve outgrown already. Anyway, they seemed to have enjoyed it so much that they want me to buy them more. And so, I did.
I actually like this table. It fits into our busy little lifestyle. Instead of us having to find somewhere to put all our stuff when it gets full, we can just store it on this table instead. This keeps things neat and tidy.
Our Ikea Over The Bed Mattress is still going great as three years on. We put a little fabric on it to protect it. Sometimes when our son is sleeping on it, he’ll run his hands and feet over the top. Which, I think is pretty funny.
Other times, we’ve pulled it off the bed and spread a couple of quilts over it to keep it warm. And sometimes, in the evenings, we turn it into a couch. Just fill it with some pillows and a blanket. In any case, we love it for keeping the mess out. And it’s relatively easy to clean up.
It’s not that I’m complaining. It is, however, time for me to move onto the next big purchase. My daughter has moved out. She left her old room and handed over her things to my brother-in-law. He’s been very nice to her, though, and he plans to take her things when he moves out.
Anyway, my niece and nephews are enjoying their new room all the time. They’ve even started making a bed out of their new table. The only problem is that we haven’t gotten round to buying a new one yet. So, I’ve just kept an eye on things. I think they’re getting a pretty good job of it. Meanwhile, I’ve managed to stay up all night reading comics by the time I go to sleep.
Well, that was a special day. The first of many. I’ve promised myself that next year will be my lucky day, so I’m going to make sure I get around to buying a new one.
The day is almost gone now. I’ve tucked myself away for the day. I can’t do much, but I’ve read a few books and watched a few videos. I feel refreshed and ready to face another busy day. I hope my energy levels remain high!
I’m not sure what I’m going to do with my time over the coming days. I’m planning to have tea with mum this weekend and catch up on what’s happened during the day. I also have a few ideas for the things I’m going to buy her over the coming weeks and months.
My son was very excited about his new toy – a “botox gun”. It makes him look like a robot, but it doesn’t move. I think he needs a real one! That’s why I don’t have much time to spend at the over the bed table. I’m sure you can relate.
