You Made Your Bed, Now Lie in It

We celebrated a major milestone in our household today: Elliot switched from his crib to a big-boy bed.

He was very excited to help with the construction of the bed, which we got at Ikea. 

Never before has such exuberance for a job been combined with such a degree of ineptitude. It was like trying to build an SQL database with Jessica Simpson.

Finally, we got it put together. I'm hoping it's sturdy enough not to collapse like a soggy taco.

It did manage to support my weight.

The real test of the big-boy bed switch comes this evening. That's when Elliot suddenly finds there's nothing keeping him from terrorizing us in the middle of the night.
