Makin' room for the Wallace and transitioning to big boy bed aligned perfectly. We knew we would need the crib for Wallace and Coen was definitely outgrowing it. Hadn't climbed out yet, but why wait for the inevitable. Plus we avoid a possible broken arm.
Coen, it seems, it not one to be motivated. He is a self motivator. Which means he'll do it when he darn well pleases. All we needed to do was put the bed in his room, make it seem super cool and important and then avoid letting him have it. It WORKED! Muahahahaha!! Who's the smartest monkey in the cage?!?! ahem...excuse me....moving on.
All of the parts came from Ikea! Love! His bed is actually more comfortable than mine. Go fig. We even got short legs for now, and tall legs for later! Smart, huh?
