Bittersweet Change

BEFORE:

AFTER:


The boys are so pleased with the change. They are so excited to go to bed in their new car beds and Patrick asks daily if he can sleep there. :) It was hard for me to see the cribs come down because it means I have to really face the fact that they are growing up but it's been great! I love to see them so independent and pleased. They have been excellent about not getting up and they are even learning to make their beds. So that's the big change around here. :)

The car beds are so cool. How neat for the boys. Don't put the cribs too far, you may be needing them soon :)

I'm sure that going to their room is now a lot more fun. I mean, who wouldn't want a car bed?

Any tips on how you're keeping them in the beds? Especially for naps?

Love the beds! Heck, I'd like to sleep in one! :) The quilts are beautiful. Did someone hand-make them for you? My in-laws are all quilters and we have some nice quilts as a result!

That's so much fun. And you may get to use your cribs again, right :)?

Is it Calvin's bed that has a tiger on it? We gave our Calvin a tiger for his first birthday! He likes to "read" through 'Calvin and Hobbes' now too.

Catherine - we just talk to them about it and tell them not to get up and remind them if they do. They do not nap in the same room which helps. They have gotten up a few times and they will get books in the morning but for the most part they are doing great!

Mama10ee - My aunt & uncle are quilters and they made the matching quilts. They are the perfect size and I love the colors. Their names are embroidered on the back.

Rachel - Yep, it's a Tiger. :) He LOVES it! He talks to it and plays with it - should I be worried? :) We love Calvin & Hobbes. And yes, hopefully we will use at least one crib again!

That's awesome! Love the beds. If you have any secrets about keeping the beds made (i.e., keeping the boys from messing them up), let me know. Meredith loves playing in her bed and it's always a total wreck. :-P

I remember when we redecorated our teen's room. It was a bittersweet time than too. But we had a terrific time.
Take plenty of pictures because they grow up fast.
