We had a nice, relaxing Easter Sunday, which was lovely after such a busy weekend. We went to church and came home after to eat lunch and take naps:). Don't we lead an exciting life?
As for cribs VS beds, the boys are still in their cribs and, so far, neither of them have gotten out again. I have reminded them a few times and they distinctly remember the falling on their head part, when I bring it up.
Today, I was singing to them: "two little monkeys climbing on the bed. They fell down and bumped their heads. Momma called the daddy, daddy said. (while shaking finger at them) No more monkeys climbing on the bed! They thought this was very funny and they laughed and laughed and laughed and asked me to sing it over and over and over....and I did:).
We ended up shopping too long for bed frames on Saturday and it was too late to get the mattresses and boxsprings. We thought we would do it on Sunday after church and lunch but everything was closed. I have since bought the new sheets and comforters, water proof mattress covers and rails to keep them from falling off. Now we just have to buy the actually mattresses and boxsprings. We are going to hold off on the frames for now. First of all, we have not found one that we like. Secondly, we won't need it for a while anyway. We are going to set their mattress and boxsprings on the floor for now, until they learn how to not fall out of bed. So that gives me a bit of time to find some twin beds that I like and that are priced fairly reasonable. We checked out two consignment stores but the bed frames they had were junk.
My mom told me today that my four siblings and I (I'm the youngest) had all learned how to climb out of our cribs safely when we were moved to a big bed. Made me think that maybe we might be jumping the gun a bit and we might need to hold off and see how they do first. I'm still concerned that we won't be able to keep them in their beds and there is a safety issue with our staircase.
On the other hand, the boys have expressed excitement about getting their big boy beds and it is clear that they are now remembering things from day to day, as they have asked about it several times now.
Enough for now. It's past my bedtime.
