This was a post from the beginning of our school year that got overlooked. So, here it is, a little late. We had some rearranging to do before we began the new school year………
It was time for Ladybug to move out of our room! I want my sleep back!
Unfortunately, with the addition of Ladybug, we had more kids than bedrooms. So, someone had to double up. The big girls were chosen to share a room and the search was on for bunk beds. Prince Charming found a great bunk with stairs (that have drawers for storage!). We placed our order.
The bed came in a million pieces that were unlabeled. Yikes! I chose the job of project supervisor and kept the kids away from all the screws, nails, and bolts while hubby grabbed his drill and actually read the instructions. Thankfully, his parents were in town that weekend so they helped with the projects. Hours later the beds were put together and the girls were thrilled.
Then we had an epiphany. Mattresses! So began a frantic search for two twin mattresses. One store kept trying to sell us a single twin mattress. Umm…..we’ll take 2 please! They only had 1! We found another store about 5 minutes before closing time and were out the door 5 minutes later with new mattresses.
We’re still working to keep the girls in the beds and quiet, but I guess that will take some time. During all the moving and putting together, Tiger got himself a big boy bed with a new comforter. He’s a happy camper! And Ladybug is in the big crib in her own quiet room. Our room is child free. Now, I can no longer use the sleeping baby as an excuse not to jump on the treadmill.
