We took a trip to Ikea last weekend. I love Ikea. I could spend hours there just browsing and imagine myself in rooms with symmetrical furniture and ample storage. Of course my dreams don’t include assembling everything and they definitely don’t include trying to keep track of two children in a crowded cafeteria.
We left for Ikea straight after Samuel woke up from his nap but alas, time disappears in that giant cavernous building and before we knew it, it was 30 minutes past naptime and then 60 minutes past naptime. As we finally went through the checkout Samuel had found a comfortable spot to sleep on Daddy’s shoulder and Thomas curled up in the bottom of the shopping cart. Hey, it’s better than an overtired meltdown.
