The girls do get up occasionally, but they come straight to our bedroom and around to my side of the bed. It is a bit unnerving to wake up to a small person staring you in the face, whispering your name...but sometimes it's awfully cute, too (like when A says she just wanted to "come say that I love you"!). In the last couple of months, they have even started going back to bed on their own, without my having to get up--definitely a nice progression.
This year's birthday will see another transition...A & M are getting big-girl beds! I placed the order and paid for them today, and they will be delivered as soon as we get new carpet installed. After much thought and searching, I chose this bed:
I want to personalize the girls' beds in some way as well. My idea right now is to make a fabric bunting to drape across the headboard, possibly with the girls' monograms in the middle. And I am thinking about doing different bedding, to keep it from being too matchy-matchy. Mackenzie loves purple and Addison favors pink, so I am sure they will request that those colors be worked in somehow. Some bedding choices I have my eye on:
Pink for Addison
Purple for Mackenzie
A little of both...
Or maybe just white and ruffled?
I hope to have their new room all done by their birthday...in less than a month! Any input on the bedding? (Their room is painted a very light pink, by the way, and it's not changing right now.)
Have you transitioned to regular beds yet? Seen any super-cute kid bedroom ideas lately?
