We keep a chair next to the little girl's crib. It began its life as a shelf/table for the rocking chair.

These days, it has morphed into a stepladder for the girl. In the morning, we lower the side of the crib and let her stay in there as long as she feels. Her only demand is that we put the string back on her balloon. Eventually, she climbs out and joins us. During the day, she climbs in and plays when she wants.

At one time, we had a folding chair. Recently, the folder chair folded a little on the girl, causing her great woe. Fortunately, my sister has lent us some non-folding chairs, so we now have a non-attack chair in its place.

The crib gives access to the shelves above, as well as provides excuses to climb. She uses the canopy to walk the edges of the lowered side.

In the evening, she is put to bed in her crib with her Jaguar, her water, and a balloon.
