My daughter doesn’t sleep in her bed. I mean like never. She will sleep on the floor. She will sleep on a chair. I want to say one time she fell asleep in the closet (sure is a scare coming into your daughter’s room and not seeing her anywhere). She has a nice day bed that she loved when we converted it from a crib but no more.
Needless to say I want my daughter to sleep in a bed. She can get cranky when she doesn’t get enough sleep. So we got her a new bed. Nothing expensive but we let her choose it herself. It took a couple of days to get delivered and she asked every day if it was here. When it came, being the awesome father I am, I set it right up. Or at least I tried to set it up.
I open the box pull out the instructions and start to put it together. I like to follow instructions but these were horrible. I had little or no chance of putting the bed together from these instructions. I do my best the whole time cursing the company who produced this product.
After some difficulty, a little hed slapping, some reconnecting I get the bed together. Check it out. It’s a beauty.
Later I was cleaning up all the plastic and card board and come across another instruction manual. What?? Two instruction manuals?? That’s right this bed came with two separate instruction manuals. One for the canopy and one for the bed. No wonder I was using so many expletives. I was trying to put the bed together using the canopy instructions.
Some of you may be thinking this is a blond moment for me but you would be incorrect. The company is still at fault. They still deserve some expletives just with a lot less exclamation points.
p.s. She did fall asleep in her bed. It took a while for her to fall asleep (way too long if you ask me) but when she did it was in her bed. Success. At least for one night.
