The Squishy Couch

The Squishy Couch

I’ve received a few questions today about the legendary squishy couch I refer to from time to time.  I thought I would explain.

For those of you out there wondering what I’m referring to when I say squishy couch,  this one’s for you.

The Squishy couch was born out of necessity.  Originally,  when Elliott was having a really hard time sleeping and we ended up down stairs in the middle of the night,  I needed a way to make him feel safe.  He would wake up with the sensation that he was falling and be terrified.

So one night I decided to try pushing the couches together.  I explained to him that there was no way he could fall now..
It worked,  thus the squishy couch was born.

Now it’s a sought after event.  The kids love the squishy couch.  So on occasion,  Elliott and I will camp out downstairs on the squishy couch.

This week,  with everyone being gone and Emmett upset that he doesn’t get to go anywhere and spend the night,  I suggested squishy couch and he jumped up and down with excitement.

Problem solved….  🙂

Honestly though, it’s not very comfortable with our crappy old couches.  Having said that, the kids are happy and that makes it more than worth it.

Please take a second and bask in the awesomeness that is the squishy couch.. 🙂

Sweet! My boxer used to sleep exactly the same way – often trying to push me out of bed with her feet!


Too cute. x3 I totally understand the comfort that being surrounded brings, especially when you do get that falling sensation in the middle of the night, or random hypnic jerks. I miss the days where I was small enough to sleep in between two couches like that. x3

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
