So, we got a new bed for Sydney. We finally got a twin size bed for her (no more toddler bed -- besides she chewed that thing to death, but it still has to last for at least two more kids... but I'm tangenting). We got a great deal on a bedframe at Shopko (as shown above, but we didn't get the headboard or nightstand) and we bought a mattress and boxspring for her. By the way, that bed is only $88 at shopko right now, 50% off!!
Anyway, my father-in-law, Vyrl, and I spent forever last night building the darn thing (Thanks Vyrl!! We appreciate the help!) and then we put the boxspring and mattress on the bed. Well, apparently this was designed only for the mattress, because with all of that the bed was taller than my bed. It looked like we were beginning the story of the princess and the pea (or whatever that was). But we got it all settled. Sydney LOVES her new bed (partly because its covered in Tinkerbell blankets and sheets. She had to have every tinkerbell blanket on before she would go to sleep (and it was not cold last night so I don't know what she was thinking).
