You know how the house switches, and furniture plays a sort of musical chairs around the house. Well because I switched the guest bed around, then the extra living room side table had to be moved. But there was no room in the living room, so I loved the coffee table to the play area. The boys (via Ivan) have requested a hard surface area to play (because I will not allow them on my kitchen island). But undoubtedly it is a stage for Ro, and a stepping stone to flip over the back of the sofa.
