and this is what I settled for.

It makes me want to cry.

The target crib is still a good crib. You're lucky you get to have such a cute one.

I love that 1st crib. . .but Stacy is right on. That black one is still good.

Here's my sob story to make you feel better. We were so poor, I had to use the crib my husband slept in. And all his brothers/sister and a set of unrelated twins that chewed on the side. I think their mother kept them in it as a cage because they were part wolf. It was ugly and I hated it.

Did that make you feel better or just make you sorry for me? All 5 of my kids slept in that ugly thing. OH, and we lived in a 1 room apartment for the first two kids, so the Master bedroom and Nursery were one and the same.

NOW DO YOU FEEL BETTER?

NO?

There's more madness. We then moved up in the world to a 3 bedroom rental. . . had 3 more kids, but between the 4th and 5th my in-laws moved in with me. So the Master and Nursery were the same again and the 4 other kids shared one room. And grandma/grandpa took the other room. This all was within the first 8 years of my marriage.

Your life isn't so bad, right?

Well, here's the end. . . we were so sick of being CRAMMED that we over did it. We built a 10,000 square foot house. It's really a 4 piece deal; a big house, an attached guest house, a smaller house and an apartment all in one. Kind of a compound. My portion is 6,000 square feet. And my housekeeper quit and so today I will spend 3+ hours vaccumming, sweeping, mopping.

OK, TMI. Have a great day and PLEASE feel sorry for me, because now I feel sorry for myself!

ok....the crib you got is beautiful! The one we have is also a hand-me-down and is tied together! Probably not the safest thing....but it was free! I'm hoping to get a new one before our next child!

I almost want to cry about it too. :) Jk. But the top one is a very beautiful crib...

Both cribs are beautiful Kari! I really like the black one though. I love black cribs.

Wow, that 1st bed is quite THE bed. I would squeeze myself in it so I could have it too! But, the 2nd one is pretty too. Don't forget, there will be a lot of peeing, pooping, and barfing going on in that bed. I do believe you made the better choice!

matt not making it anymore? better than us. we never bought a crib, i think we found it in a dumpster. poor kids no wonder they won't ever sleep in it.

Chelsi said...

sad!! maybe for your next offspring. i still really like the black one though

Chelsi said...

you know, i like the black one as a converted bed better than the first one as a converted bed.

here's what I've learned.....the babes are in their crib for less than 2 years!!! they could give a rats where they sleep!! It's all about the bedding girl!!! Just get hooked up with some stellar cute bedding and you won't even notice.....
