Ready or not

Or should I say “Like it or not”?

Our Little Man decided he would start crawling out of his crib. Oh great, just what we need. He had been crawling out for several weeks and we talked about getting him a bed. Though I REALLY wished he would just stay in the crib. He just turned two, what’s the rush?

Well, Lineman was listening to tradio when he heard about a bed. BTW, tradio is like classifieds on the radio if you were wondering. Is it a small town thing, I don’t know.

So, he heard there was a car bed for 40 bucks. He gave the guy a call and asked what he wanted for the bed. The guy says, “ah, you can just have it.”

A little cleaning and here is what we got for our car addict son….

December 357

A new blue car.

December 358 A happy boy!

December 360 A boy with Banana (the monkey).

December 387 I’d say the car was a hit!

All I have to do now is figure out how to get him to sleep without 50 matchbox cars in bed with him. No joke!

(slowly, but surely I'm coming back to the blog world) ;)

ohhh!! We NEED one!! This is the coolest thing I have ever seen! Litle Man is one lucky boy! It's just perfect! Just imagine the fun that will be had in that bed - he'll be the envy of the neighborhood - except, do you live in a neighborhood? Maybe I should just say he'll be the envy of any little boy who comes over. Wow - Jacob would go into cardiac arrest if he had something like that! Sweet dreams!!

Oh, he is adorable! What a great treat for him!

What an absolutely, fantastic post! We know Little Man's nickname should be "CAR". I never have seen a little fella like cars like this guy. And the bed...just perfect! He is grinning from ear to ear. Love it!

What a great find. He looks as pleased as he could be with that transition. I might switch beds for a cool car, too!

What a perfect bed for a little boy that loves cars!

We have tradio on one of our AM radio stations here, but we also have another radio station that calls "tradio" a country store where you can buy, sell, swap or trade anything. Our town is only 23,000 people, but we have lots of little towns close by. I think tradio is a midwestern America idea.

My sister would LOVE that bed. She's not right in the head and is a Gordon and Johnson fan. ;) That comment wasn't directed at Lineman at all! lol

Darcie said...

I thought is was a typo...tradio..thanks for keeping us up to speed.

Shouldn't our kids be required to send out memos when they decide to grow up on us?

He looks like such a big boy in his big boy bed.

No way...free. That is awesome and those pictures are just too cute. He is so proud.

What a lucky boy! He looks so happy and as for keeping cars out of the bed, let me know when you figure it out. My little guy still brings his cars to bed and he'll be 5 in June.

good thing for 'tradio' :)
John would climb outta his bed and into Benji's. So when we put him in his OWN bed, he'd climb outta that and sleep with... Benji. Now he just sleeps with Benji. And thomas the train, percy, henry, gordon.... He's into trains like your little man is into cars!

Oh my gosh, how adorable!!!!!!!!!!!

Sharon said...

Is that a deal or what??
He looks like one happy little guy.
I remember the hot wheels in bed when our boys were little. Some hot wheels also went through the laundry being tangled up in sheets.
Love those BOYS!!

Oh boy how was that for good luck! No problem getting him to go to bed in that one.. : ) And he won`t hurt himself falling out either. Only problem: one mamma who doesn`t really want to give up the baby boy thing now he`s a big boy! cbinu

Alice said...

I like the last pic. It shows how happy he is, even while he is sleeping. But what I want to know - where in the heck are his accessories or is this the stripped down model ! tee hee ~Linda~
