Thanks Bill

Ashlea's big girl bed is ready!

This is the wonderful Bill from TAD standing beside his handiwork...



Ashlea couldn't wait to check it out.  While I was making the bed she kept saying "Lie on the bed", although it sounded more like "Loi on a beedddddddd" - she was channelling a little Kath and Kim with her accent.  As soon as we put her in the bed she crawled all around it - every time she came to a new Night Garden character on the doona she would shout their name in excitement.  Piggle!  Uppy Daisy!



Of course then everyone wanted to get in...



The first night in the bed was a resounding success.  I wasn't sure how things would go as it is the first time Ashlea and Audrey have had separate rooms.  It feels a little sad to separate them - I've kept them in the same room up until now as I felt there were social benefits for Ashlea.  I still think Ashlea would benefit from sharing a room - the problem is her room-mate doesn't benefit from all the night time activity!  Last night they both slept for nearly 12 hours and in the morning Audrey still said "I didn't get enough sleep last night Mum".  Hmmm...I think she takes after her dad.

THANK YOU BILL!  And thanks for fixing the front door while you were here too!
