It’s time for another Thursday Thoughts! If you want to participate, but have no idea what a link-up is, you can check out my explanation of it here.
~I hope everyone (everyone who celebrates) had a great Christmas! To those who commented, yes, the kids are feeling much better over here and I am so happy about that. I was at Urgent Care with WB on Sunday and the Doctors with L on Monday night, so hopefully the worst is long past. It seems that we weren’t the only ones who weren’t 100% either. Everyone was sick!
~Okay, on to Christmas. The bunk bed? We pulled it off!!! Yes! We decided to wait until the boys fell asleep on Christmas Eve instead of trying to do it during the day and then keeping L out of that room. Here’s how it went down. Basically as soon as L was out (we told him he could sleep in our room), WB started crying which was totally perfect since we needed to WB up anyway because they were totally switching rooms (the nursery is the bigger room and would fit bunk beds better). B had to disassemble the crib to get it out of the room and then he switched dressers between the rooms and grabbed the mattress from L’s old bed while I held WB as he slept. As soon as the crib was set-up in L’s old room, we put WB to bed and we ran down to the theatre room to grab all the bunk bed pieces and brought them upstairs. That door has a lock so B had brought everything down there on Monday night taken it out of the boxes, etc. to make things go more quickly on Christmas Eve. B started on the bunk bed and I brought up all the presents / stocking stuffers, etc and put them under the tree. And less than two hours later, it was done. AMAZING! L didn’t wake up or hear a thing. And it was LOUD! I was shocked. He stayed in our bed all night and in the morning when he woke up we had him go in “his brother’s room” (which was really his new room) to wake him up. And he opened the door and stopped in his tracks. Watching him realize what was going on was probably the best Christmas moment to date. He was thrilled. Even Scrooge would have smiled.
~WB likes his new digs too and I really don’t think he cares a bit that he’s in a different room. We had family over on Christmas Eve and although WB was a mess all day, once I got him out of his pajamas, he was like a totally new kid. Happy, cheerful, etc. He put his party face on for the crowd for sure! And he’s quite pleased with the new trains he received from Santa ;).
~I received my Erin Condren order earlier in the week (the one that was supposed to have a wedding planner in it) and, umm, it was wrong. I had ordered the wedding planner instead of the notebook because I wanted the extra pages it had, etc. I was flipping through it and was like OMG this looks just like a life planner! Umm, yeah, because it was a life planner. I didn’t realize it at first, but it included a card that says basically oops, we screwed up and to keep their mistake and that the corrected item will be coming soon. And sure enough, it’s coming today!
~I didn’t end up doing the Christmas Night box I had blogged about. We had so much to do and L was so happy and content with everything he received that he didn’t even need a special end of the night box. I am saving the idea for New Year’s Eve though and am going to put some noise makers, hats, party necklaces, etc. in it. Plus a movie and snacks and maybe a few other things. Any other suggestions?
~So while I was at the doctor with L earlier in the week we were working on this “I SPY” book. OMG, it was the most difficult book I have ever “spied”. LOL! L and I were there a long time so we had plenty of time to work on it and it just wasn’t enough. This picture below has a “saddle” in it that I cannot find and it’s driving me bananas.
~I know that I said I wasn’t going to go, but I think I am going to hit up the Target Christmas clearance today. It should be 50% off, so umm, I’m just going to “look”. Besides, L wants to go look for a few things for his room, so I mean we have to go. I might just hit up the semi-annual sale at Bath & Body Works too. Luckily B has a consultation for Lasik this afternoon, so I can’t be gone too too long!
~Speaking of B (who is the best bunk bed builder ever), check out this picture of one of his recent races. Doesn’t this look fun?? Ha!
What’s going on for your Thursday today? How was your Christmas! Headed out to do any returns? Hitting up the after-holiday sales?
