Toddler Bed or Not to Toddler Bed….

I think I mentioned moving the twins’ cribs around last night, well that has caused a whole new issue. With the two cribs close together like that they are easily able to climb in and out. This afternoon during naptime we heard a door quietly close… Ken went to check and outside the door were the twins’ two little rubber snakes. They had climbed out and took all their toys and books to the little space behind the crib and had thrown out the two toys that did not belong in their room! What silly boys, if they had not done that we would never have known they were out and would not have thought to go in and check. So I guess we need to hunt down and affordable toybox and move all their toys into the livingroom and convert their cribs to toddler beds. I called my mom to see if she had been saving them comforters or can make them something. Is this the end of naps??? Good lord I hope not.
What concerns me is without naps they are tired by 5pm which means they are back in bed before Ken gets home. Ugh I love my kids but they certainly make life… interesting…
Further proof the boys need naps…Ken had to run into their bedroom as Emanuel was crying, Zander was dragging on of their little people sets over him. Apparently he was in the way… this is so not Zander, usually he is VERY careful about going AROUND the baby or getting him to move. How frustrating. Poor emanuel was just BALLING. Add to that that they are simply NOT listening to me and frustration abounds.
We brought out Emanuel’s snack cup today. He still shakes it to get stuff out but is getting how to use it properly. I need to order more of them, the new ones have a new top that goes over the plastic piece instead of you having to remove the plastic to cover it. They also convert so sippy cups though I don’t think I have the piece to put over it. I love them and often buy them for first birthday presents.
I swear we have just not been thinking – I went into the twins’ room and moved the cribs side by side – there is enough room for the space from before DUH… the room is basically square we could chose a wall and do the set up now that the dresser is in the closet. That should hold us for now, until we get the money for the rails and such.
I cannot wait until the weather is concistently nice, it got warmer today but still so much ice and snow on the ground. I think all 5 of us want to get out. It is just too bad Ken’s foot is only good for short walking distances. Better than before but still not close to 100%. Thank goodness he is feeling better though.
All in all silence is golden, the kids asleep and Ken on his pc… now if I could just get a propper tv table or something for my laptop and sewing… ahh but there is always something right? Maybe tomorrow I will be more introspective or even thought provoking. Night all…
