The parents of young kids I know talk about moving their toddler into a “big girl/boy bed.” Sounds like some nights it goes well, some nights they fall out, and others they just plain don’t want to stay in it. I can’t blame them. If you had been cooped up in a crib for about 2 years (or however long kids stay in cribs – no judgment… I have no idea) I would be running amok, too. Actually, if you ask my parents I did my very best to be in a big girl bed before I could walk. According to them I wanted nothing to do with my crib around 8 months old and nearly literally busted out of my crib, rattling the rails (because I was able to stand already too) during fits of crying rage at all hours of the night. Sorry, Mom and Dad.
Luckily my new bed doesn’t have many constraints. It’s pretty simple. We went with the Malm bed from Ikea to house the new mattress we bought a few weeks ago. I feel like more of an adult having a completely furnished bedroom, even if most of it is from Ikea. Thing is, I really like the looks of their stuff. It’s affordable and it’s my style. If you remember my post about my dream beds, you know I am not a fan of traditional furniture stores anyway.

I also found what is currently my new favorite beer. It probably has a lot to do with the awesome label. I am a sucker for those things. I am a big fan of spring seasonals and this one was top notch. I recommend the Magic Hat Vinyl Lager.
