Big Boy Needs A Big Bed!

All Children grow up, but that is a hard fact for a Momma!  My little man seems to be growing at a high speed.  Not long ago I had to buy him new winter clothes.  He grew two sizes in one one year.  Shoes are the same way, but you don't often think of a child growing out of his bed.

Will has been sleeping in his crib for 4 years now.  It's a convertible crib that turns into a toddler bed and then into a double bed.  He has been sleeping in it as a toddler bed.  He is growing so tall that he is almost to long for it now.  Instead of turning it into a double bed, we decided to go ahead and get Will a twin bed. 

We shopped for a twin bed for a few weeks now, and saw a lot of bunk beds, but not many normal twin beds.  Will wanted a bunk bed but is afraid of heights, so that was out.  The last think I need is a top bunk bed filled with toys or kids coming over to jump off the top. (I so see an ER visit in the future if we would get a bunk bed.)

I finally found a bed at a garage sale of all places.  It had the sticker still on it from the furniture place it was purchased form and all.  The bonus was that they only wanted $20 for it!  Yesterday we went and got a Serta twin mattress for it from Big Lots.  $99 and it was ours. 

Today I will be taking down the crib/toddler bed so Hubby can put up the Big Boy Bed when he gets home from work tonight.  Pictures to come tomorrow!
