Saturday, October 8, 2011BIG BOY BED
"Dad, you have to make sure these 2 pieces line-up"
I can't believe our little man is ready for a big boy bed. I mean, he has been sleeping in his crib's version of a toddler bed for 6 months now but this is a real BBB! We saw this bed at Ikea (the Kura Reversible Bed) and loved the design of it but were not feeling the $330.00 price tag.
So I went to work on Craigslist and Kijiji and was able to get a smokin' deal from a post on Kijiji for the bed, mattress, canopy, an art easel and 2 wall shelves all for the GRAND Total of $180.00. AMAZEBALLS!
The hubby worked his little butt off this afternoon building the bed. Of course there were no instructions but even if there were, we all know what Ikea instructions are like....
We held the big unveiling after bath time and I am so happy to say Jamie loves his new bed. He jumped right in and snuggled under the covers. Not only is Jamie happy, this bed means me and the hubs don't have to sit on the floor while we read to him during story time. It was so nice to cuddle right in with Jamie and read to him tonight! Lets cross our fingers that he stays in his own bed all night!!
