Kyle and I regularly helped our stake with their Temple Cleaning assignment. Our ward is amazing and decided that before hand we should all meet at Eva's and go eat dinner beforehand. While we were chit-chatting at dinner a couple asked the table if anyone needed a twin bed. They were getting rid of it and wanted it to go to someone that could use it. That started the internal battle of when to move Bentley out of his crib and into a "big boy" bed. I nudged Kyle and he said that we could use it. That Monday Kyle went and got the bed and we set it up for FHE. I was surprised at home emotional I felt as Kyle was taking down the crib. Bentley is only 2 and very much is the baby in our house and I didn't like the fact he wasn't going to be in a crib anymore! Bentley was a little confused about what was going on but he was excited there were all kinds of tools around.
With the new little bookshelf on his bed, the kids loved reading books to each other and testing out how comfy the new bed was.
We were a little nervous on how well Bentley would handle the actual sleeping part- and he did amazing. It was like he had always had that bed. We haven't had a single problem with him and his big boy bed. The transition was a dream.
