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!
