Apparently, however, I was incorrect in a foundational assumption. You see, I thought my children had outgrown the cradle. But, it seems that I have been proven wrong because lately I have found it being used as…
a school “desk”
a hang out spot
and a “we’re playing and I’m pretending to take a nap” spot
Of course, I smile when I think that it has been made well enough that some day my own grandchildren will sleep and play in this same cradle. But for now, I am happy that my “babies” are still little enough to fit!
