It's About Time!

It's about time I got back to this here blog thing.  I have no good reasons for being away for a month, so I won't waste time making things up.  I'll just apologize and move on.  Sorry!
It's been a busy month, and I'll write about the snow and all that good stuff later, but I wanted to stay with the "it's about time" thing and write about Monday and today.
Monday we gave the boys haircuts, and it really was about time.  On the left, the before and on the right, the after:

Deacon's "after picture" isn't the best as it was taken after his shower, but you get the general idea.  And as you can see, Finn was NOT happy about it at all.  He cheered up a little half way through and stopped crying and seemed to even relax a bit.  He didn't relax enough to smile for the picture at the end though.
Today, and while it may not exactly be "about time" for this, it was coming anyway, Finn got a new bed.  Over Presidents Weekend I took advantage of the sales and some sweet online coupons, and ordered a twin sized bed for Mr. Finn.  The bed (and boxspring) came today, and with the "help" of my boys, I got the new bed set up and took apart the toddler bed he'd been sleeping in.
While Finn was SUPER pumped about the whole thing (including his new sheets which he picked out himself last week), when it came time to go to bed he ran into his room and protested, "No bed! No Batman! No Angry Birds! NO!"  Once I placed him in the bed and he saw his familiar animals and blankets it was no big deal and now my little boy is sleeping sweetly in a big boy bed.
And that's it for tonight.  Not much, but at least I'm back, and I think we can all agree, "It's about time!"

Wow, what transformations after the haircuts!

Do your kids sleep on a mattress and boxspring right on the floor? Is it low enough that they are ok with falling out? Do they fall out much? Gloria sleeps on her crib mattress on the floor right now, but at some point I'm going to have to get her a real bed. But she is SO OFTEN sleeping with half her body on the bed and half on the floor that it makes me worry about the twin bed a bit! I'd love to hear how your kids do. :)
