A Prayer Before Sleeping

The Big Girls' Room is almost done!! We have gone about redoing their room in a VERY slow manner. We just bought things as we could afford them. First, we bought the sheets for their future beds in June. Then several weeks ago we bought their new mattresses. Then I bought their blankets. Finally last week we bought their bunkbeds and their quilts.

So finally Emma and Macey have their big girl beds!

We got a good deal on the bunk beds from And I saved up and just cried a little bit when I bought their quilts from Pottery Barn for Kids. Darn Pottery Barn and their expensive cuteness!!

Making a bunk bed was a little difficult. It took me a long time to make that top bunk. I hope to find a better way. Surely I will get better with practice!

So here's my prayer before sleeping. Please, please, please Emma, do not wet the bed tonight. I just do not think that I can remake that bed again tomorrow.

I don't mean to be a defeatist, but making the top bunk does not get easier. Enlist the help of the girls. It seems counterintuitive, but it has really helped a lot around here. Let them do all the tucking on the far side. If it's against the wall it doesn't really show, right. Done and done. Good Luck! P.S. I know you're probably thinking, I hardly know this girl, why is she commenting on my blog all the time? Well, I don't know if it's because our husbands know each other so well, or what, but I feel like I know you and I love reading your blog. It always makes me laugh.
