    Kids hanging at home

    I had to go fetch my daughter from school early on Friday, as she was not feeling well. Early this morning, she puked in her bed and ruined the hand-me-down bunk-board mattress that she out-grew a year ago. She's feeling much better after a day of rest and Momma's attention.

    She and I had already spoken about replacing her bed with a hammock. So, we dismantled the bed and installed the hammock. Until we find a nice Mayan, she will sleep in a Byer Traveler. She loves it!

    Attached are pictures of her as she went to sleep a few minutes ago. The blown-up picture shows the little add-ons I had to do... one box of tissues and a water bottle with a sipping tube.

    Cool! My 5 yr old wanted me to put his hammock up in his room instead of the big guy bed he got about the same time, but....Mom said NO WAY! We were both a bit disappointed,....... he got over it.

    My wife asked, "What's she supposed to do with them after she uses them?"

    I told my daughter to heave them overboard, and collect them in the morning!

    Very nice. I like the water tube too! I keep mine handy near my head when I camp.
    At home I just have a cup on the floor, but maybe I need to do an up grade

    My son (8) has been sleeping in one for about a year now. He's got one here at my place (claytor expedition) and one at his mom's (my old hennessy ulb). I sleep in a bridge or my warbonnet (I rotate).
    A friend of mine thought it was great and was joking that her daughter will only date boys that sleep in hammocks......(better odds of nothing happening..lol!)

    I told her about your spreader bar to prevent shoulder squeeze, and now she wants an upgrade for that!
