Sissy's big girl bed came in on Friday - right on time. I was so worried. The furniture store had given us a delivery estimate of between 3 and 6 pm.
I am often at Buddy's school until right around 3 pm, waiting for him. We made it home in plenty of time. Then, I had to worry about the Friday Night Fish Fry. The Knights of Columbus at my parish hosts these every year.
The fifth grade students work them to earn tip money to do their end of year graduation trips. Basically, they carry trays for people, clear tables, refill drinks, etc. They also get a free meal out of it! But, Buddy needed to be back to school by 4:50 PM and the Evil Twin and I planned on hanging around a few extra minutes and then have dinner (they start serving at 5 PM).
I hoped that the bedding would be delivered early and it was! So, by 4 PM, the mattress and box spring was here! Yay!
We took Buddy back to the school in time and had a great fish dinner. He had to work the dinner until 7 PM, so in that time frame we came home and set up Sissy's new bed and removed the crib.
Here's her new set up (for now):
You can't really get the colors here, but the top cover is a super light green and matches some of the flowers from the sheets.
Here is a close-up on the flowers:
For now, we have the bed longwise up against a wall and will use a bed rail on the left hand exposed side. Eventually, we will clear out the room and move crap around.
So far, so good. She wakes up and just chatters (we hear her on the monitor). But, I think she'll be like her brother and just stay in bed. Buddy used to sit in his big boy bed and call "Mommy!" Even though he knew he could get out of his bed by himself.
And, that is your public service announcement to keep the babies in the crib until they're three! Much easier!
