We look like we've done a lot more to our nursery than we actually have. Truth is, we have done 3 things:
1) Got rid of the bed.
2) Spent 15 minutes at a consignment store & bought a crib, mattress, bedding set, and chest of drawers
3) Put the crib together (okay, Josh went solo on this one) because we had an actual baby we were taking care of that needed to sleep in there!
But hey- it looks like we've done a ton! Truth is, we're not keeping this bedding set. It came with the crib. At first we thought we might keep it, but the more I look at it, the less I want to have a pink & brown room. I was going for more orange, green, blue, yellow, and a touch of pink--- and this bedding set just isn't going to work. In fact, we're probably not going to get a traditional bedding set at all.
That's not the point of this post. The point is the problem we're going to have to deal with in about 5 months! Check out these shots-- all taken within about 30 seconds of each other. Pay attention to the activities going on with the animals. In every picture, there is at least 1 animal underneath the crib, or on his/her way out from under the crib.
|Look closely-- it's not just that black blur-- look on the left side of the crib at the little bottom going underneath!|
|Ahh- the cat bolts from under the crib, dashes out of the room, then comes back to taunt Jigsaw, who is still under the crib!|
Yes... it will be quite interesting! It wouldn't be such a huge problem if Jigsaw fit better under the crib. When he walks underneath it, he bumps up the mattress, and then the entire crib comes off the ground when he gets out from under it.
I don't think crib skirts are for this family!
