Big Girl Bed (Finally!!)

When we brought Rachel home, she slept in a crib.  Less than a month later she started climbing out (and falling), so we converted the crib to a toddler bed.  It was just the right size and easy for her to get in and out of (which she did, dozens of times a night).  She grew and grew, but the toddler bed stayed.  Katherine moved to a regular bed just before her 3rd birthday.  Rachel did not.  She stayed in the toddler bed.  We were ridiculously unmotivated to buy her a real bed.  I bought a quilt for a big bed almost two years ago, which has set neatly folded in a corner ever since.  But this spring, when we finally admitted that our soon-to-be-kindergartener was still sleeping on a crib mattress, we decided it was time to convert the toddler bed into a full-sized bed.  Soon!

The bed rails, mattess, and box springs arrived today.  Rachel was beside herself with excitement and insisted on helping assemble the bed.
She spent the whole evening crowing about her big girl bed.  She even invited Katherine to sleep with her (an idea that was vetoed by the adults in the house).  And when bedtime finally rolled around, she was one happy girl!
