I just put the boys down for their last nap in their "cribs." Before I was a mother, I thought there would be much sadness and mourning at the passing of these baby milestones, but if you're a longtime reader, or a mom like me, you know there's not. When I weaned the boys, I was happier than I'd been in many many months - I got my boobs back! The kids are eating again! And now that we're about to put them in really big boy beds, I think I'll be much happier when this milestone is passed, too. Hopefully we'll all be sleeping comfortably again.
Last night we took the boys to the mattress store down the road and in what must be a record-time purchase - seriously, it took me longer to schlep them to Kmart today to buy the sheets - we dropped 200 bucks on two new Sealy bunk bed mattresses. Taking all your wisdom into account (thank you for your sage advice), as well as the time and effort it would take to maybe save money hunting around for deals, we decided to go the quick, easy, and definently bedbug-free route and purchase new with our trusty credit card. They will be delivered - FREE - this evening.
Today's schedule goes like this: get the kids to nap, wash the new airplane sheets, disassemble the cribs, clean their room (hello, dust bunnies!), reassemble the beds, make the beds, bathe the boys, and tuck them in. And feed my family some kind of food and maybe just maybe clean up the kitchen. But I doubt that will happen - the clean kitchen part. Stay tuned for our progress tomorrow.
