Since Morgan has recently learned how to crawl out of his crib and since he is two and a half, we decided that now would be a good time to get him a toddler bed. We decided this a few months ago. I've been looking on craigslist for a good deal on a toddler bed, but there were hardly any at all! I looked in Boise and there were always some toddler beds. So why wouldn't SLC or the Provo area have any? There are more babies in Utah, I'm pretty sure, and the city is bigger.
Then Aaron told me about KSL classifieds. I'm a convert. That's where all the ads go. It's even more user friendly than craigslist. Love it.
The second time I looked at it I found the toddler bed that I've been wishing for. It's the blue racecar kind. I'd find these sometimes, but usually way out of our budget just for the frame. I found one in practically new condition AND it came with a mattress and a sheet for only $50! Woot! So we got it.
Morgan likes being in bed much more now, so bedtime and naptime haven't been an issue.
The first day, every time he went into his room and saw his new bed he would gleefully shout, "Car!" or "McQueen!" It was like he'd forgotten it was there and had a happy reminder.
Yesterday when we got home from church Morgan immediately went up to his room to visit his bed. I'm happy he likes it so much.
