Giving Guests a Goodnight's Sleep

Whether you plan to have a weekly rotation of sleepovers for your kids or only want to be prepared should your friends drop in unexpectedly, you will want to be able to house guests comfortably. It’s easy to do, but not many people think about it. Most of us remember futons from our college days and not too fondly. That’s because we got cheap ones that were either handed down to us or they were just left in our dorm room when someone moved out.

Spend a little extra money to get something with some support and a good amount of cushioning. A cheap futon is cheap for a reason. Don’t force your guests to sleep on them, while kidding yourself that they are comfortable.

A step up from the futon is the daybed. This is a bed that can become a couch rather than a couch that becomes a bed. It makes a difference since its primary purpose is sleeping; they are designed to be more comfortable in that form. These are great if you don’t have a guest room, which many of us don’t even have the space for. Ditch the pullout couches and never consider buying them. They aren’t comfortable. Every time you sleep on them you feel like you’ve spent the night on a set of kid’s bunkbeds that are too small in a hotel that hasn’t turned their mattresses in a long time. Just get rid of those pullout couches and forget about them. If you do have a guest room then get a set of adult bunkbeds. Forget about the kids bunk beds that you slept on at camp. Today there are some quality bunkbeds that are absolutely beautiful. By using these instead of a standard bed you are doubling the sleeping space in that one room. This means that you can have more guests while using less space. Even if you only have one child I think you should get a set of kid’s bunk beds for their room. It’s for the same reasons that I suggest adult bunk beds in the guest room. Sleepovers get that much easier when you already have a set of kid’s bunk beds ready and waiting for that extra child.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
