I am hoping this month will not be all about first for the family, but we are at that time in life where they are happening a lot.
Last night, my little guy, got to sleep in this toddler bed for the first time. To get to this point, I had a first. Our crib was one of those convert to anything you can image, here is hoping we can make it a college tuition when the time comes. So, it was my job to convert the crib into a toddler bed. This was my first! I am never the one who builds or fixes anything in this house.
To begin my job, I made sure I had the manufacturer's directions, my iPad for YouTube directions, the right tools, all the parts, and a good sense of humor. The most important tool I took into the room with me was the sense of humor! It took me over an hour to take one side rail off and put on a safety rail. I am sure my husband would have done it in 5 minutes, but it was my first. In the end, it took me moving the base of the bed three times before I realized I never had to more it.
When it was time for little K to check out his new bed, he was pleasantly surprised he was free to get out as he wanted.
