New Bed

Ever since baby man figured out how to get out of his crib 4 months ago, we've figured we should get him a bed (although sleeping on a mattress on the floor is just fine for a 2 year old). Anyhow I found some that I liked, but they were around $400 each. It seemed like a simple enough project (little did I know) for someone who knew a little about "building things", so I asked my sweet dad to do it. He agreed, and here is the finished product. Isn't it great?

My dad is actually building another one for Pumpkin. The kids loved them and baby man was eager to practice going to bed.

That is such a cute picture. I'm anxious to see if a cool new bed will help babyman stay down at night. It has been a couple weeks since I've seen those cute babies and I miss them! Well, school will be out soon, and then you can plan on Aunt Mindy coming over to play!

Ju turned two on May 1st. He is still happy in his crib, hasn't tried to escape yet, thank goodness. I have no idea how we would afford a bed for him here - I'm thinking of buying one of those cheap ones next time we travel to the States.

akutyger - my dad built two of these beds for under $100 - and lots of time. however, you are right, there are LOTS of less expensive ones available - we were originally looking at thomas the train or elmo beds.
