We made up CJ’s big boy bed tonight. I say we, but CJ actually did most of the work including putting all the dowels and screws in, I just drilled them tight.

I’m torn. He suddenly seems so small in such a big bed. But he also suddenly seems huge. No more baby cot, building a bed himself, telling us what he wants in real words.

Tonight I got to sit on the bed beside him and read bed time stories with him saying the key words with me.

He loves his new room now that it’s all done. So do I.

We chose the pirate theme just in case he needs to wear a patch for his eyes at any point. Being a pirate after all is much cooler than just being a normal boy.
