The toddler beds cometh

Tomorrow the good folks from IKEA will deliver two toddler beds, and the transition from the family bed to their own bed will begin.

We are going to set them up in our room and eventually transition them into their own room with a trail of fairy lights. So today I shall enjoy the last day of a spacious bedroom before it takes on the look of an IKEA showroom.

At 19 months I think (and hope) that the girls are ready for their own sleeping space. Zoey has been pushing me away at bedtime and during the night. She wants to know that we are there but is carving her own space and she sleeps like a whirling dervish. Naomi is still a big snuggler but is also a kicker so she is not the easy bed mate that she once was. So it is time.

I’m also working on getting the girls to nap in bed in the afternoon than in the stroller. It’s getting hot and I think we all need a siesta rather than sweating our arses off outside.

    hehe! Maddy’s twin size bed is being delivered this week. It’s the last thing we really need for like another decade. No more cribs, toddler beds, we have their last carseats in the car since they convert, no more strollers. No more baby gear. Yard sale time 😉

    Eek. Wishing you luck. We’re still in the very-small-crib-one-for-each-girl stage and probably will be for another year…if they don’t outgrow them first.

    The day is coming soon for me too. I just posted about us bed-sharing too.
