Today I bought a toddler bed for Jacob! I’ve been looking for one on Craigslist for quite some time but I finally found one that went well with the other boys’ bunk beds. The only problem is that it had beaten up. The previous child must have gnawed on every possible surface, taking off a lot of the paint. It took me about 2 hours (nap time) and a brown sharpie marker to fill in all those dings. It won’t fill in the dents but at least you don’t see all the teeth and scratch marks right when you see the bed. You have to think that this is going into a boys’ bedroom where it’s going to get used, so I’m happy with the way my $25 dollar find!
We first bought it after Benjamin was born. He slept in a cradle for the first month or so, but they we bought this crib.
It went with us when we moved to Pennsylvania where we transformed it into a double bed until Joseph was born and we had to change it back to a crib.
It stayed in the garage when we moved to this new house until Jacob joined our crew. He had some good times in his cage 🙂 ! But I guess all good things must come to an end.
It’s been a great 7 years!!!
