Big kid beds

Last night marked a great milestone in Pyatt family history. The crib is folded and stored with no projected date of being restored to its functional state. This has not happened since we got it. D moved out of the crib to a toddler bed about 7 months before K was born. K moved out of the crib into the bottom bunk on our bunk bed about 2 months before A was born. Now A is out of the crib and there is no one coming to take her place.

A has been wanting to move into a regular bed for a few weeks. Imagine our delight when some friends asked if we wanted a bed because they were getting rid of one. Now we could stack the bunkbeds up and put K on top, A on bottom and have a bed for D.

Thursday, my friend, Tyce, came over to drop off the pieces for the bed and stayed to help me set it up. Since then D has only come out of his room for serious needs.

It is a cool bed.

Then Friday I spent the morning and my energy rearranging the furniture in the girls' room and stacking the bunkbeds. By nap time, everything was ready for A to try out her new bed. I put her on her bed, turned on her music, left the room and waited. This is what I saw when I went back 30 minutes later:

I learned two things.

#1 - A is ready for a big girl bed.

#2 - A should always have pants on before going down for a nap.

Friday evening, we went to Costco to pick out a mattress for the new bed. And wha-la! All three kids in their very own big kid beds. Everyone went to bed okay. The only interesting thing happened about 2:30 a.m. when I woke up to A sitting by my bedside reading stories in the dark. Luckily she went back to bed easy enough!
