the dragon


One of my great purchases at IKEA last weekend was this gorgeous table. I simply love it. I decided to put it at the top of our stairs in an area that had nothing before. A couple of night ago my 2 year was getting to bed and she started to cry. That's normal, she doesn't like to go to bed. But then she said "Dragon". Huh? "Dragon" as she's pointing to her door. I looked and could see nothing. I told her there is no dragon, go to sleep. She sat up, 'Dragon", I layed her down, and this continued for a few minutes. Up and down. Finally, I looked over in the dark and realized she could see my new table in the hall way....I thought "there is no way that is the dragon". But I got up...moved it to the middle of the hallway to see what would happen. Sure enough, she layed her head down and went to sleep. It WAS the dragon....needless to say, I've moved the dragon for 3 nights now...so basically I need to find a different place for the "dragon"

Oh, poor little girl ;o) Maybe a new bedtime story with good dragons would help to prevent an aching back from moving the "dragon" every night ;o).
It seems we love the same things (if I've seen right)...I have the same can/vase from IKEA *grin*.
Have a great start into the new week,
Julia

Poor thing. New shadows to see. It looks like I really need to shop at Ikea more often. Truth be told, we have one in CT and it's just over an hour from my house but 10 minutes from my cousin's house. I was there ONCE. Almost 4 years ago when I was pregnant. But reading here and on Sharon's blog... I need to go there again.

Funny how a child's imagination can run wild. I probably would do the same thing, move the dragon to a new place. I hope she is sleeping better.

I love this post...it reminds me when my girls shared a room and one daughter was really afraid of the other daughter's doll display. Children are so funny sometimes!

Oh! I saw that table in the IKEA catalog and LOVED it! Great choice!

I saw that dragon at Ikea too. I loved it. Wished it was a bit bigger though. Love Ikea.

Awww, that's so sweet, poor little sweetie. At least you were able to figure it out. Maybe you should put some of those adorable spool vases she created on your dragon!

Poor baby! Did you see it from her eyes? Just looks like a table to me. :) Maybe she should watch the movie Pete's Dragon.
