Unpacking always seems to go a little slower than expected, don't you think? Right now, I've been focusing on the girls' rooms. I believe having a space of your own where you can escape the chaos is really important in these transitional times. Before we moved, I decided to surprise both the girls with new beds. Poesy has graduated from a toddler bed to a full-blown "big girl bed" (a twin bed), and it seems to make her feel pretty cool. Plus, as we adjust to new sounds at night (have I mentioned we live very close to a hospital? Oof), I wanted to set up for as much sleep success as possible. For her sanity AND mine.
Poesy and I had a little bit of a time agreeing on a new comforter for her bed. As much as I love to let the girls express themselves in their clothing, toys, decor... whatever... there just seemed something so sad about slapping a "Frozen" blanket down in this lovely space. In the spirit of keeping things lovely, we settled on a super soft, Ultra Light Down-Alternative Comforter and cotton sheet set from Sleep Number®. She wasn't 100% sold on the bedding until it arrived, but once I got everything all set up, it was instant joy.
Here's a peek at my favorite part of the set. There's an elastic band under the fitted sheet to keep it on the bed. Genius. AND the flat sheet has a Smart Button™ system to attach to the fitted sheet, so there is no sheet-slipping when Poe is tossing and turning... or jumping on the bed. Hey, I still do that, so who am I to tell her she can't?
I'm glad she's been loving her new space more and more. Oh... and I'm also glad not to see any Disney princesses in this gorgeous room. Basics for the win! ;)
