Because He’s Two

  • Two nights in his new big-boy bed
  • Two trips to Ikea to visit the bed before we bought it
  • Two critters, a dog and a cat, on the headboard of his new “kritter” bed
  • Two two-word phrases that made us decide against bunk beds (“jungle gym” and “stomach flu”)
  • Two trips to the bathroom each night after bedtime
  • Two boys happy about having a roommate
  • Two two A.M. cuddles since leaving the crib behind
  • Two mornings with Eli walking down the hall to our room, announcing happily “Li awake! It sunny day!”

Here’s to a couple years of good sleeping in this new bed!

    Oh, Caroline wants bunk beds so badly once Katherine is out of her crib- I had thought of the jungle gym reason but not the stomach flu reason- yuck!

  2. Elrena says:

    I love the bed!! How very cool. (Should I admit that my almost-three-year-old is still sleeping in her crib?! We’re kind of going with the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” plan over here, I think!)

  3. Caroline says:

    Oh, Ben was in a crib till he was 3+, too, for the same reason (he was sleeping, we weren’t about to mess!). But E’s a different kid, and I think 2nd kids move faster in many of these things…

  4. mom says:

    Well, congratulations to Eli! How long will it be before Ben takes care of the bathroom escort service?
