About 3 years ago, Aunt Pam got Ben and Emily Halloween books. Ben read his right away and then was completely freaked out because there was a part of the book describing how a girl put a flashlight under her chin in a dark bathroom and said "Bloody Mary" three times. I don't know what was supposed to happen at that point. But, Ben didn't want to sleep alone that night.
So, Emily slept with him. Which suits Emily just fine because she doesn't like to sleep, so now she had someone to talk to and keep awake. About a year into that, we put her back in her own room. But, Ben was weepy at the thought of sleeping alone. Typically, I wouldn't care. But, Ben is a really great kid who asks for so little. I have a hard time denying the few simple requests he makes. So, we let Noah sleep with him.
Noah has a hard time staying awake, so it worked out better than Emily the night owl. But, Ben and Noah are in a double size bed. Ben is almost 5 feet tall, so it's starting to get a little crammed for both of them. So, last weekend, we decided to get them bunk beds. Sam's had a great set for a super price, so we couldn't pass it up.
So, for the second weekend in a row, my husband had a screw driver in his hand more than anything else.
Noah "helped" us assemble it. He's in my bath robe, and he's on my kindle. I have no idea why. Maybe he dreams of being a housewife. Wait until he finds out that I rarely sit down and spend 90% of my day doing things for everyone else. He'll ditch the idea then. :)
And here they are all done.
Now, Emily thinks she gets to sleep in there too. Oh vay, we didn't really solve any problems. Now, they are all 3 going to be in one bedroom. Seriously, we are in a 5 bedroom house and 3 of them are empty every night. Anyone want to come visit?
David was thrilled to get it done. He said, no more projects for a few weekends. Then, we got the garden started on Sunday. Then, I told him we should make raised garden beds. And he just about killed me. HA! Maybe another weekend.
