I love this twin bed for kids that I saw at modern tots.
A twin bed and a toddler bed are two distinct sizes. A lot of people use the term toddler bed as a term that is about the age of kid that uses the bed, but it is really about the size of mattress that fits the bed. A twin bed uses a standard twin size mattress, that is 40” x 75”. Whereas a toddler bed uses a crib mattress size of 271⁄4 × 515⁄8 in.
Twitter has adopted another kid??? They are starting to have a very large family.
Yesterday, our friends at Summify announced that they have been acquired by Twitter, that they “will be disabling new account registrations immediately and…removing some features” and that they plan to offer “a more streamlined service as we transition…
Photographer Lawrence Schiller took the final nude photos of Marilyn Monroe the day before she was found dead in her bathtub at the age of 36.
Vanity Fair has several of the photos from that shoot in their June Issue, available on newsstands in New York and L.A. on May 3 and nationally and on the iPad, Nook, and Kindle on May 8.
Here’s an excerpt from the issue:
“Fox [Studios] should start paying as much attention to me as they are paying to Elizabeth Taylor,” Marilyn Monroe told Lawrence Schiller (then known as Larry Wolf), hatching the idea that would turn out to be the break of the young photographer’s life: for him to photograph her nude. An ongoing battle to get Fox to take her more seriously, and jealousy of Taylor’s success, led Marilyn to her attention-grabbing plan: a poolside shoot in which she’d jump in the water with a bathing suit on… and come out without it. “Larry,” she said, “if I do come out of the pool with nothing on, I want your guarantee that when your pictures appear on the covers of magazines Elizabeth Taylor is not anywhere in the same issue.”
Marilyn was making only $100,000 for what would be her last film, Something’s Got to Give, in 1962, while Taylor was receiving a million dollars for Cleopatra. She wanted to show Fox that she could get the same kind of coverage as the publicity bonanza generated by Taylor’s very public affair with her co-star, Richard Burton. When Hugh Hefner agreed to pay $25,000 for a nude shot of Marilyn—the most money Playboy had ever paid for a photograph—Schiller thanked her for creating such a big payday, joking, “See what t**s ’n’ ass can do?” “That’s how I got my house and swimming pool,” Marilyn said, laughing. “There isn’t anybody that looks like me without clothes on.”
Just 23 years old at the time, Schiller, at the set on assignment for Look magazine, had no idea that he was getting to know the icon in some of her most vulnerable moments. In an adaptation of his memoir about their sessions together, Schiller recounts intimate and telling conversations that illuminate the private struggles that consumed the starlet in her final days.
“I could tell you all about rejection,” Marilyn said to Schiller. “Sometimes I feel my whole life has been one big rejection.” “But look at you now,” he said. “Exactly,” she replied. “Look at me now.” Confused, Schiller protested, “You’re a star! Your face is on magazine covers all over the world! Everyone knows Marilyn Monroe!” “Let me ask you, Larry Wolf—how many Academy Award nominations do I have?” “I don’t know,” he said. “I do,” she said. “None.”
However, Schiller reveals, Marilyn’s attitude about her sex-symbol status fluctuated wildly. While she was at times boastful of her looks and what they procured for her, she was also by turns insecure and angry. “It’s still about nudity. Is that all I’m good for?” she demanded of Schiller. “I’d like to show that I can get publicity without using my ass or getting fired from a picture,” she continued. “I haven’t made up my mind yet.”
It was to be their last conversation: the very next morning, Marilyn was reported dead at 36.

Attachment parenting at it’s best. This kid’s going to have a few warped views on the world.
WHAT THE WHAT?
New parents realize that they have a major miracle when they manage to get thier baby to sleep throughout the night time the first time. Nevertheless they find themselves face to face with the terror once again, when time comes for the little children to make his / her change out of his / her cribs, that was recently a secure little nesting getaway for them to sleep and play in, to leaping into unchartered waters in the form of a new bed.
There are numerous reasons for why you would want to make the transition to a twin bed for toddler, at the moment that you’d, whether it’s because your kid has started climbing from his/her baby crib or because you have another baby on the way, and you have to have the crib for the birth. Even so, it is simple for your kid to accept the transition as a cause for hardship, but it might disturb his/her natural sleeping pattern that he/she has gotten used to in her/his crib.
There are easy ways you can avoid the typical hurdles which typically take place when it is time to transfer the child from your crib into a bed:
* Do not hurry things! Your child may be getting close to the age that you think that it is time to make the move, but just the understanding is just not enough. Every youngster is unique; hence the cross over process differs for anyone. The best time to relocate the child will be from eighteen months up until the time he/she is around three ? . The later on you move your son or daughter, the more effective it is, from just a security viewpoint.
* Store together for ‘Big-Kid Bed’: Getting your kid involved in the process needed to make the cross over may instill a sense purpose and responsibility in him/her, making your little one see the move as something to look toward instead of dreaded, and as something which he/she has control of. Permit your youngster to find the bed, the bedsheets and the special pillows, stressing upon the point that due to the fact he/she owns this, they should select it. In case the bed you plan on finding is a hand-me-down, then educate your kid that he/she is just as big as the kid he/she’s receiving the bed by.
* Prepare for slips: A person always has a choice on which type of bed that you’re likely to select. Some mothers and fathers begin simply by finding a box mattress to stop their children from falling out during the night, some install guard side rails to toddler beds while others line the bed’s surroundings with pillows. Just do what ever looks pliable, as the newly obtained freedom of movement can lead to little ones falling from their beds while sleeping.
* The Big-Kid Bed Hoopla: Create a fuss concerning the transition. Spruce up the area, ask loved ones and relatives, and allow your son or daughter gifts, making him/her seem like he/she has achieved a thing because of this cross over. This can produce a a feeling of enjoyment instead of worry.
Finally, you should be ready, because despite of all your efforts, there may still be a lot of unhappiness. Supply your kid some time to become accustomed to his or her surroundings with other modern kids furniture—in most cases they do—but if you’re required to admit that you’ve made the transition hastily, be ready for taking back again your choice and re-install the crib. Take it with a grain of salt, realize that it had been your error and don’t impose the changes onto your child anymore.
