I saw these bed rails in the Enabling Devices catalog but they cost $17,000, I'll bet there's a way you can make them yourself.

My little monkey does that, too, and I asked the PT and she gave me some exercises for him so he'd stay on the bed. So now there are even MORE exercises I won't get around to doing. #sigh #guilt

  1. I love parodies! I'm teaching myself how to sing, so I hope I can bring one of my parodies to life.

  2. Can I add my dorky version?
    10 little monkeys jumping on the bed. 1 fell off & bumped his head. Momma called the doctor and the doctor said, why are you calling me - I'm not a vet. Momma called the vet & the vet said, let me call you back. Vet called animal control, & animal control said - momma is illegally housing 10 monkeys without an exotic animal permit & we're seizing all monkeys housed at the premises... No more monkeys jumping on the bed.
