Ashton's big boy bed (a.k.a. mattress on floor)
This is our latest addition to Ashton's room. A new mattress and bedding on his floor. The reason for this is simple. Ashton refuses to sleep in his crib. He HATES it, and always has. So where does he sleep you might ask? Yep you guessed it, with Tommy and I right smack in the middle of us. With baby number 2 quickly on it's way I knew I needed a solution fast before our bed turned into lyrics straight from the song 5 little monkeys. After struggling with ideas (and after talking to a friend) I pulled his crib mattress out and plopped it on the floor. I added some pillows and blankets and nervously attempted to put Ashton down for a nap. Thankfully it worked,and so after a few naps and a night of him sleeping in HIS room on HIS bed, we decided to make it more permanent. We figure he's probably still too small for an actual bed since they are raised off the floor, so that will wait until this summer. For now this arrangement is great, and he looks like such a big boy in this big bed.
