Here it is:
So the wood part fits under the mattress?

You might be able to find some bed steps in the pet department. I bought some nice ones for Beagle from Drs Smith and Foster, assembly required. I think Walgreens may carry them too.

Yes it goes under the mattress, using your own weight to keep it stable.

I was thinking about those, going to look at them at Pet Smart today, I do have a couple of 8 inch high step stools that will work.

We have a memory foam mattress, it is not conducive to changing positions. I struggle to get out of it without having surgery. Then the drop to the floor, about 6 inches with me sitting on the edge.

Bella and I are about to dismantle the outside autumn/Thanksgiving decorations and put some of the Christmas ones up. Won't do all of it until the week of Christmas because everything stays up until January 6.

Even though this Christmas season is an abbreviated one, we'll still have plenty of decorations and lots of fun.

I just got back from the hospital visiting Cheyenne Marie. This is the first time I've been able to hold her and my heart melted holding my tiny 3lb grand daughter in my arms. She should be able to come home for Christmas!! I made her pink hat, but I'll make a Christmas elf hat to wear home.

What a precious baby!

I'm making a combination of Kades' and Kayelle's mushroom soup.

Congrats on your beautiful granddaughter. Good things come in small packages.

TSM, Dawg and Andy.

Believe me, this is the smallest baby I've ever held! Her daddy and uncle were 9 pounders!

Oh, what a sweetie and such lovely, long fingers. Piano?

Check out Barbra Streisand's . It'll make your heart melt and bring tears to your eyes. It's one of the most beautiful Christmas songs ever written. It fits little miss Cheyenne to a T.
