Thanks, Dad!

I almost forgot!  The reason I brought my large (grubby) van up on my visit to New Jersey was so that I could bring this chest of drawers back with me.

My Dad found it in a rather battered state at a second hand store, but recognized that it was a good piece, solidly built, so he refinished it for us.

As the kids grow, their clothes are bigger.  An odd consequence is that the smaller chests of drawers no longer fit the clothes of the bigger kids.

Leena, who had been cramming her clothes into teeny, tiny, rather shabby drawers for a while now, really appreciates the new furniture!

I was surprised to discover this about chest of drawers (chests of drawers?) but it is all too true.
