OK, now, be honest

HYPOTHETICALLY, would it be ridiculous for a supposedly grown-up adult person to really really really want this??? :D

1. Well...
Considering that I'm excited for the next Pokemon game...
I'm not one to talk about being 'grown up'
Go for it. :P

2. That's fun.
i'd be happy to have that, it's cheerful. Life is gloomy and dark enough, that's a little bit of sunshine.

I'm pretty sure sunshine would cause him to curl up like the Wicked Witch.

But for you, well, have fun! :)

18. There is no law that says grown ups
can't indulge their inner child. Keeping the child alive is what keeps us young. If it makes you smile then why not get it?

33. I'll never be a total grownup
I still swing on the swings at a playground, still own and use a jump rope, still love making bubbles and watching them float on the breeze. I'm grownup when I need to be, I just don't need to be all the time.

29. I'm just worried it might not be too sturdy

Since it's built for kids, maybe they assume it won't be around too long... hmmm... :think:

How are you doing hon? :hug:

36. Adults can buy anything. I just bought a teddy bear for me to hug when I sleep. I've
been hugging a pillow or blankets for the last few years and finally decided to splurge and get a teddy bear around the same size as the Mack Truck Dog (a teddy bear) that I had as a child. I have PTSD and need to self sooth. So to anyone who thinks I'm being childish I would say "go to hell". I've thought about this for a while.

Same goes for your dresser. It is beautiful and really a piece of art. Plus it has the geckos you like so much. So why not buy it. If you think you'll enjoy it and need it in that way, it is for you.

37. aww I fully understand the need to hug something

38. I have kitty cats but they will only cuddle & purr for a certain amount of time
and then they both go either to the foot of the bed or off the bed to sleep. It seems to be taking me much longer to fall asleep these days. I am lucky in that I am busy so I have lots of work issues to think about. But I need something. So I splurged today. I'm sure it will work.

39. I always hug pillows at night too

I am glad you finally got a bear! I hope he helps you sleep better. :hug:

I will have to let you guys know if I get the dresser... I only wish it had a few more drawers. Then it would be just what I'm looking for. But it's so pretty, I might have to get it anyway and just pile things up on the shelves!

42. Nice!
Not my style, but could totally see it for you.

Can't find a pic of the one I want online (can't remember the name of the store *or* the brand, damnit! LOL), but suffice it to say it has a *lot* of colors and a *lot* of patterns :D

I found this one because i was searching for "painted armoires" -- I'd like something with some color, most furniture is so boring! :D

Just my personal opinion however.
