An era is over. The era of cribs, toddler beds, and little people mattresses. Lincoln has been wanting a twin size mattress for a while (it was past time, but I'm a bit slow.... !) so about two months ago I bought him a new mattress. I ordered it from Amazon (coils and all) and it came compressed in a tight roll that popped up into a surprisingly comfy 7 inch mattress - I love Amazon!
Evan had claimed he did NOT want to move to a big boy bed, but once Lincoln's bed showed up bed envy showed up, too, and Evan changed his mind. So then we had two mattresses. On the floor - because I figured if I didn't take at least the first step on the project we would never start.
Now, a month later, we have beds for the mattresses! The little guys helped put them together and are quite pleased with their half height loft beds. Next step up will be a fort area underneath their bed.
