Beds

My plans for Saturday were quickly thwarted when J came into my room.  Although I normally love to see him this time I was not thrilled. I had just put him down for a nap.  In his bed.  Where he was supposed to stay.  Apparently the little bugger cherub figured out how to get out of his crib.  I knew this day was coming, but I was thinking more along the lines of junior high and apparently he thought he’d better hurry before September was over.  I quickly readjusted my agenda to include changing beds around.  K would get the crib (transformed to a toddler bed and soon to be a twin bed) and J would get K’s toddler bed.  K’s bed had been put together incorrectly (which wasn’t a big deal at the time because she no longer needed the side rails), so I had to take both it and the crib apart and put them back together.  Then switch then rooms.  It was right around this time when I learned the crib (ie transformed toddler bed) does not fit through the doorway.  So I took it apart, again, this time with S’s help, and then moved and reassembled it. Oops.

The process was stressful thanks to the assembly/reassembly process and J’s (victorious) nap boycott.  However it was also successful!  Until poor K became really sad because she didn’t want her ‘new bed’ after all.  (Oh, how I wished I had the twin mattresses to make her bed a big one!)  Thankfully I found a solution to help her.  What does a girl need to feel better?  A little bling!

(It’s not the most exciting bling, but it was late in the day and we needed a quick solution.  The important thing is K liked it!!)

Finally the new beds were set up and J’s was ready for bedtime.  Now it was time for Mom to be a little emotional.  I kept thinking back to his very first bed. How far he has come!!

He is loving his big boy bed!  Now if only he’d STAY in it at bedtime!
