What We’ve Been Up To
I’ve been wanting to update the girls room for quite some time now. Not only has Reagan outgrown her toddler bed, but we needed the mattress for Ashlynn’s crib, who up until these past couple of days has been sleeping in a pack ‘n play. (What can I say? I’m cheap. I didn’t see the point in purchasing a 2nd crib mattress for a few months.) And I really just wanted to create a new haven for the girls, a place to call their own.
Now currently Devyn and Reagan are sharing a room, and Ashlynn is bunking with Hudson. Once we finish the basement (within the next two years), we’ll move Hudson to his own bedroom and bathroom downstairs. We figure that as he gets older, he’s going to need his own space. Away from the three sisters. At which point, we’ll move Devyn into Hudson’s room, and move Ashlynn in with Reagan. Confused yet? It’ll be a massive project, and I already have a headache thinking about it. (Side story. During this most recent makeover, I asked Hudson if he’d like us to move Ashlynn in with the girls. His response was a resounding “Noooooo!” What can I say? He adores that girl.)
So back to the room…
I started researching bunk beds and preparing the girls for the upcoming changes. And when our tax refund hit our bank account, I finally had the money to fund my vision for their room. I think we succeeded.
This was taken from the hallway, just glancing into their room. There were squeals of delight and hugs galore when we finally unveiled it to the girls. Reagan runs up to me four or five times a day, throws her arms around my legs, and tells me, “Mama, I just love my room.” That makes it completely worth it to me.
Now pay no attention to the nightstand in the corner. Its seen better days and we’re planning to refinish it… We purchased almost everything from either Target, morebunkbeds.com, Ikea, or Hobby Lobby.
I can now check off one item off our to-do list. There’s only 74 more items left on the list. Spring cleaning has arrived in full force and while our list is daunting, I’m determined to tackle it one thing at a time.
