Alvin's Big Boy Bed

So, due to my surgery and subsequent inability to lift more than 10 lbs for 4-6 weeks, we decided to go ahead and move Alvin into a toddler bed. I cant lift him out of the crib and I dont want him trying to climb out. Bad juju ya'll. So, Eric and I surfed on the web to see what all was out there. We fell in LOVE with the Little Tykes Thomas the Train toddler bed. Ya'll it's a $300 bed. Yes, you read that right. That's out of our budget range, sort of. We figured we'd just get him a regular wooden bed ($100) and another crib mattress ($80) because we knew he wasnt going to take well to the change. Then, since we were already nearing $200, we decided what the hell, let's go with the Thomas bed. So we called Toys R Us in Waterford to see if they had one in stock. Ya'll, not only did they have one in stock, but they needed to get rid of the display model. If we were willing to take the display, they'd let us have it for 50% off!!!! Yes, you read that right. 50% off!!! So we managed to score the DREAM bed for $139! Alvin just loves his new bed. No clue if he'll actually sleep in it yet, but we'll find out soon enough.
