Toddler Beds Here We Come...or Maybe Not

Where do I begin? After many, many discussions, we decided to get the boys toddler beds. Were we crazy...YES. At the time it seemed like a good idea. They're big boys now, and what do big boys need...big boy beds. Chris found some nice beds at Toys R Us. Easy to assemble, no, but they're really cute. Look how cute Ben is in his big boy bed.

The first night, the boys went straight to bed and fell fast asleep. We were amazed! How could this be? We stayed up for hours waiting for the chaos to begin. Nothing. The next morning, no problems. They stayed in their beds until Chris got them up. Naptime, no sweat, they went right to sleep. We were waiting for the ball to drop, and it did. Let just say there was a lot of jumping on beds and running around the room, in the dark no less, and it took 2 hours to get them to sleep.

The next day we immediately began putting their cribs together, but found out they had been recalled. So, the good news is that we got brand new cribs. YEAH! Ours were pretty disgusting. We can't complain about that, but I think we'll keep them in their cribs for a few more years. Let's hope they don't figure out how to climb out.
