  • Two Kids Crosswise

    August 4th, 2022
    kids
    When traveling, we sometimes end up somewhere with the older two kids sharing a double bed. Initially we would put them down the normal way, as the bed was made to be used, but recently we realized it goes much better if you think of the bed as being sideways:

    Kids are pretty short, and if they sleep crosswise they're farther from each other, which minimizes fighting. Our kids don't fight that much normally, though they don't get along as well as they did a year ago, but bedtime while traveling is one of the worst situations: they're extra sleepy, and the sleepier they are both the worse their impulse control is and the more irritable they are. Rotating the arrangement makes it easy for them each to have their own space. Separate sheets and blankets also help.

    A Full is 54" wide and a Queen is 60" wide, so the median child gets too tall for this at about 9y on a Full and 12y on a Queen.

    On the Beach

    I really like going in the water and this beach is a great place for building sand castles and boogie boarding. I also like trying to float on top of big waves. I'm not very good at it. I only float on the flat waves.
