It is done

This was yesterdays project and it was a pain!  We finally put the bunk bed together. I don't know what was the worst part,  putting it together or making the beds.  I knew it would be a pain to make the top bunk, but good grief the bottom was just as hard! So far the girls love it. Audrey and Kylie sat in the top bunk for most of the afternoon and thought they were the coolest things ever.  I even let Sophie get in it for a few minutes, but I'm trying to really emphasize that it's for ages six and up so I told her it was a one time only thing.  In all honesty I think it kind of scared her being up so high. Audrey did shed a few tears when she went to bed because she was worried it would fall in. Completely my fault.  I lectured all three girls over and over again (hey, I'm a worry wart!) about standing, jumping and dancing on the top bunk because I don't want it falling in. Completely stupid on my part considering that it would be pretty much impossible for them to do any of those things without putting their head through the ceiling. 
It was kind of a bittersweet bedtime for me last night. I'm used to lying in Kylie and Audrey's bed with all three girls and reading to them and then we'll snuggle. Audrey and Sophie wanted me to read to them in their "new" room last night so I couldn't do that. *Sigh* I also hated taking the artwork down above the bed, I just love it so much.  I think I'm going to check etsy for a banner to put on the wall above the bed so if anyone has a seller to recommend please let me know. Of course I do have these art clips from Land of Nod that I could always use.  They are the little blue birds so they will match.

I confess that I probably checked on my baby  probably no less than twenty times last night.  And yes, she was completely fine every time
