I don't really trust him in a normal bed. Like one that's off the the ground more than six inches. We are ghetto in our house, which means his mattress is on the floor. After a few minutes of throwing toddler versions of verbal assaults, he'll retreat back to the lump on the floor to sleep.
We didn't want to get super fancy but I was thinking that maybe by Christmas we can get him a box spring and maybe even a bed frame. I'm just not sure he'll actually make it UP into the bed. It's one thing to flop your body down anywhere and everywhere in the room to sleep but to actually climb up into a bed ... that's hard work, yo!
We've been putting it off and then Sleepy's contacted me and asked if I wanted to check out their new stores and write a review about our experience. Hmmm... I don't know. Oh yes, here's a gift card while you're at it. OooooKAY!
I did notice, before their peeps ever contacted me, that they were popping up all over. Apparently, they are getting into the Chicagoland market (check out where they've opened here). Soooo, Sunday we went to Sleepy's. We thought it would be nice to upgrade EZ's sleeping situation from ghetto to not-as-much ghetto.
The store closest to our house was nice and to be honest, a typical mattress store. It's not like I shop at mattress stores that often. It was quiet and clean, like a library, until you bring two over-stimulated kids into the store then all hell breaks loose. The sales man introduced himself. I chatted with him about what we were looking for while J did his best to keep the kids from climbing the walls and breaking things.
For real? We haven't even been in the store for 10 minutes and they are acting like wild monkeys.
It's like they are allowed to jump on the bed at home or something... who would allow that? shifting in my chair uncomfortably
J had to come back the next day to get the bed because we didn't have room in the car with all of us. But had we been more prepared (such as leaving the kids at home with a proper caregiver) we could have brought it home that night.
We haven't set it up just yet but rest assured you'll know as soon as we do. I'm certain it will not be without incident.
