Getting so big... :) :( :)

Somethings are just bound to happen, and we reached one of those things today. It's been a long time coming, and I know other people who have kids as old as Klous, this is a thing of the past, but it took us awhile :) We decided awhile ago that we weren't going to put him in a toddler bed when we moved him to a "big boy bed"...just cuz if he had problems at night and we had to lay with him or whatever, I wasn't going to lay in a toddler bed!! So anyways...we've had the idea and thought of getting bunkbeds for awhile, but couldn't find the right ones. Well leave it to us on a Saturday morning...bright and early at 6:45 I got up and went garage saling!! Some friends came along, then we came back about an hour later to get Ryan & the kids. One of the high schools was having a band fundraiser, so we went to check it out...they had bunkbeds with mattresses...there was a sign on the mattresses that said SOLD, so I was discouraged. Then we thought maybe they only sold the mattresses...so we asked...and sure enough they had. So I asked how much they wanted for the actual bunkbeds...and the kid said $25...can you believe it!! I was shocked and excited!! They were decent...wood...had drawers...had a ladder...was everything we wanted...so we decided to go for it. Then they had ONE mattress left laying on the other side...we asked if it was still available and it was...so we asked how much...$5!!! So for $30 we got bunkbeds with drawers, the "bunky boards" to go under the mattress, and a mattress!!!

Here is our great find!!!
Our good friend/neighbor Tyler came and helped Ryan put them together while I took the kids and Tyler's wife, Carole, to Wal-Mart to pick out sheets for Klous...of course he wanted CARS!! Don't mind the "storage" on the top bunk...that's what it'll be used for now...or until I put the laundry away ;)
Klous' new BIG BOY bed...that if we need to, we can lay in it WITH him and not just on the floor!!!
Out little man fast asleep in his new bed...don't know why it's so fuzzy...sorry though...
We'll see how tonight goes and if he stays in it all night...that would be GREAT...stay tuned for the update!!!
Now for tomorrow night and the coming week...finally putting Aysha in the CRIB and not the play-pen...getting Klous potty trained...taking the binki away...and whatever else we need to do...HA...I wish!! Someday...give it time, it'll happen right!! Aysha will be in the crib though...that one will be accomplished!!! Ryan & I want our room back to ourselves...for a few months at least!!! :) :) :)

Great find! It always seems to go better when the toddler or child is making the choice or is excited about it... like the new bed! I hope he does great in it. Amber is still in her crib, and I don't have any plans on moving her yet... although we have a handy second to just about everything we have because of the twins.

What a great find! That's a nice bunk bed! We moved Justin right to a big bed too- so Audrey could have the crib. It worked out nice, now the boys share a bunk bed.

Wow! What a great price! Klous looks so cute in his big bed! We are trying to move Ava directly to a big bed but she really doesn't want to leave her crib. That is great that he got right in and slept!
