For the past few years, Jonah has been sleeping in a hand me down bed.
Hand-me-down as in handed down from ME!
The bed was a super-single - remember that size?? I dont even think they make mattresses that size anymore! The bed was well over 20 years old, but it was solid wood so we held on to it and made it work.
As Jonah was approaching his 7th birthday, I felt he really needed to have his own bed. Some thing fun, something different. After staying in a bunk bed at Great Wolf Lodge, Jonah was sold on "sleeping near the roof".
We are in the midst of re-doing his room. After all, he still had stuff on his wall from when he was a baby. Which is my fault, because I have a hard time letting go of his stuff. Now we are replacing it with Transformer themed stuff. He is loving it!
My parents and my sisters family pitched in for the bedding and wall hangings which he will get on the 27th. He knows about it and is very excited.
The bed has already been put up and he has one Transformer throw for now. Couldn't have his first night without something Transformer!
We do love the bed. It is a loft bed and has a desk underneath and has a lounge chair that converts to another single bed.
Of course being the mushy Momma that I am, I have already found something I don't like.......I can't climb up and snuggle with him!!! Or smother him with smooches while he is sleeping!!
I will find a way. God help me and the support beams!
Here is my boy and the new bed!!
