Bed Full

Because when you’re a parent you can’t say ‘There’s no more place on the bed”. Even if you’ve been pushed to the corner and are hanging on by your fingernails.

At last count, the OA and I were sitting on the floor and the bed was taken over by Spiderman, and 7 of the Bean’s ‘babies.’ Oh – the flavour of the day is a Koala bear called Cuddly. I think after the Bean broke her heart over the Lumpy episode she decided not to make the mistake of loving someone too much.

PS: Still begging you guys to vote for me here. I have only 60 votes in the face of those who have close to a 100. Please do take some time out. I know its a painful process but I’d really appreciate it. I’d love a nice new phone on which I can check my mail. My new 4 hour commute is a killer so I’m hoping to get some work done on the way.

  1. ooh, that line just broke MY heart..

    “…after the Bean broke her heart over the Lumpy episode she decided not to make the mistake of loving someone too much.”

  2. Voted voted…and at least this happens to you with two kids who are nearly 6 and nearly 4…how about a single R who just turned two and managed to push both her parents down the king sized bed so that she could sleep with her bum up sprawled at the middle of the bed :):)

  3. 10 occupants already. Add to them Tambi’s baby(s) when they all move to Delhi, along with the baby’s Noddy/Winnie/Spidey/teddy etc. You might want to make use of the sale at Plaza Mall and buy some more beds πŸ˜‰
    Psst, Plaza is not to far from my place. *wink wink*
    How’s the knee?

  4. So cute:)
    Btw MM, that spiderman on the bed looks a bit scary .. I would have freaked out if I had seen it live.. πŸ™‚

  5. “…after the Bean broke her heart over the Lumpy episode she decided not to make the mistake of loving someone too much”
    You’re my soul sistah, Beanie! But don’t stay like that. You’ll find a forever-true-love someday, honey. And MM’s always there, even if she loves you a little less than Tambi πŸ˜›

  6. Wow!!B&B Rock!!
    Atleast they are both on the bed!!
    Cant say the same for my kids who tend to roll off and land with a big thump!!
    No amount of pillows/toys/barricades do the trick, so I now dump them on mattresses on the floor.
    And yet, they roll off it too 😦

  7. Indiblogger guys haven’t approved my blog yet 😐 Will vote as soon as they do.

    And oh, even before I read this post I had this huge smile on my face looking at the pic. Heffalump is back! So what if he’s got to share the love with other babies. We don’t mind sharing. And it’s good that Beanie has learnt not to love someone too much, so early. It’s hard when you have to learn that when you are older.

  8. Can’t access Indiblogger. Still. Will give it one more try!
    I see Lumpy, even if he is sort of bottom of the pile.There is another elephant in the pack too? That Spiderman is konjam scary. I would die if I bumped into that almost lifesize thing in a dark hallway πŸ™‚
    Here’s to the Button joining the babies (I know you haven’t named the Tambi baby yet, this is my interim suggestion :)).
    The BFF is expecting a baby in February and I can’t wait (almost petitioned her to come back to India, but since there is a teeny chance I might join her there, I am holding out from the petitioning for a bit) – can imagine what your levels of excitement must be like! πŸ™‚

  9. AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! I want to come and give the teenie beanie and the smartie brattie a big hug! I am THIS close to baby talk now πŸ˜›

  10. hey MM, I tried number of times to promote the post…but it says ” No active blogs in your profile” … 😦
    I really want you to win the phone …sachi

  11. Do u look at them forever when they are in-sleep….observing how peaceful they are in their slumber. U do no? Confess! Confess! N Beanie’s hand fallin over just looks soooo serene!

    N that spiderman IS scary ! whats with boys n the toys they like!

    I’m waiting for Blog approval since Tuesday MM. Any idea how long it takes to get approved? The message said I’ll get an email once its approved…I will no?

  12. Voted πŸ™‚

    Did I miss something? Why did the Bean break her heart over Lumpy? I thought she just got bored of it.

    And the Spiderman is awesome πŸ˜‰

    Here’s hoping you win the Blackberry!!!!!

    I’d love to vote, but my blog has still not been approved. 😦

    • babe i havent bought them anything in three years other than educational toys for birthdays. this is from the super indulgent chhota nani and nana. let this be a lesson to all of you. this is how people go nuts when they become grandparents at 38

  15. Is there any possibility of repeated votes? fraud votes? poll rigging? “Kalla” vote as they say in tamil?

  16. Awww! This is so precious!

    And I owe you an apology…I didn’t vote for you because I didn’t know you’d sent in an entry because I haven’t been blogging for a while. Otherwise, you know I so would have, right?

And in your opinion....
