Well, it's summertime and things have been changing around here. First off, my daughter Karis has been asking to sleep in a big bed for quite some time now. She is almost 3 and if I had it my way, she would have been in a crib until she was 5. She is my third child and I've noticed that things are just more relaxed when you get to #3. Both my boys were potty trained and out of a crib by 2 1/2 yrs old, but with her???.... naaah... what's the rush, really??? Sometimes we are just happy that she is alive and knows her name. Ha! Yes, there *may* have been times when we've forgotten that we have 3 kids to watch over while in a crowded area. We may have "lost" her for a little bit. This might have happened to me -----> (taking mental count at the campground) ...child #1. check. child #2. check........ (mins pass)... child #3. WAIT. CHILD #3??!!!!! Ok, so before you call CPS I assure you that the family we found her with was a nice looking family. JUUUUST JOKING.... really, I am.
So with the pleading request of my 2 yr old daughter, we finally put her in her big girl bed. I didn't think that I was going to be so emotional, but I was. I mean, I didn't even prepare myself for her last time in her crib. I imagined taking her shopping to pick out her new sheets, but it all happened so fast. Before I knew it, I was crying like a baby while she HAPPILY jumped up and down squealing with excitement in her new bed.
|This is Karis' room before. It looked so beautiful with the white crib.|
I just HAD to throw in this pic of my sweet girl praying.
ANOTHER change that we have been working on is our garage renovation. We have a 3 car garage that we are converting over to a playroom/workshop. The one car garage will be for my hubby's tools while the 2 car garage will be made over into a hang out area. This is what it look like about a few weeks ago. Now it looks like this:
|Don't worry, all those wires will be covered when we can get a different TV. It wasn't in the budget so we have a temporary one there now. All those wires really bug me. Just a few more shelving and door frames and this room will be FINALLY done!|
|Aren't these so cool? My hubby found these awesome bean bag type seats at Walmart. They are SUPER comfy , our kids love them, and best of all... they match!!|
