Mr. Three is (supposedly) coming any day now, and Mr. Two must be booted from the crib.
I know Mr. Two is over two years old. And still in the crib. And still in diapers. But I can only fight one battle at a time.
I figure getting him to sleep in a bed is the bigger battle now.
A lovely and generous friend gave us their old bed frame, which is high enough to fit a trundle bed underneath. We just needed the trundle. (My parents lent us a mattress. Thank you.)
Enter crafty husband to save the day.
He designed and put together this trundle bed frame on Saturday. Mr. One loved going to Home Depot to get the supplies, and watching the progress.
I loved watching my creative husband sketch away in his notebook, designing and measuring, then drilling and measuring some more. Our home smelled like fresh cut lumber, in a good way, while he worked.
Mr. Two cried and hugged the crib railings.
At the end of the day, we had a perfect trundle bed, and it only cost about $60.00 in supplies. Hooray for crafty husbands!
Now, if we could just convince Mr. Two how wonderful his new bed is...
We had no problems with Mr. One, he just hopped into his big boy bed the first night and slept like a log! We've been trying the "Super Nanny" approach, just being consistent and sticking him back in bed every time he gets up, but my heart is aching as he cries for his crib for an hour...
Any tips/hints/words of support out there in blogland? Help!!!
