We finally did it. After having eight boxes of bed parts sitting in our house, we finally got all the beds put together and split the girls in two rooms. (I use the term "we" to essentially mean Hubby because my sole job in the assembly was to order the beds). So, bye-bye cribs that converted to toddler beds. We definitely put you through the wringer... thank goodness none of you collapsed on us!
There's still some decorating to be done in the "white room." It has a Tinkerbell wall paper border, but I want to add some fairy decals, too.
The first night went better than I thought it would, but not a good as I had hoped. Everyone was out of bed at some point. Yes, it was to be expected. But after preschool I had them outside running around the neighborhood in hopes that I could wear them out. Unfortunately, the excitement was too much to let exhaustion stand in the way of a good 'ol slumber party.
Cakes and Tortilla are my best sleepers. I decided to keep them in the "purple room." They are often out shortly after lights out, so I felt it was only fair to room them together and let them finally get some uninterrupted sleep. They, of course, were out of bed and running around the first night. Since then, they have been conked out in record time.
Sue Sue and Roo are what I'll call my "night time troublemakers." They giggle. They make endless trips to the bathroom. They will even go around to their sleeping sisters and try to wake them up. I was apprehensive about rooming them together, but, in the end decided I would rather deal with one disruptive room than have them in separate rooms. The first night, they were both up until close to 10 p.m. (and up at the crack of dawn the next morning). The next night, Roo was my hold out. The following night was Sue Sue. I would be lying if I said I didn't expect this. Eventually they'll settle down (right?!)
I was adamant that the first night in the new rooms had to be a night Hubby didn't work. There was no way I was embarking on this big change by myself. I've now had a few nights of going it alone.... and I'll share my little tricks for that process tomorrow.
