We ordered this Land of Nod bed for Andrew about three years ago when we moved back to San Diego.
We ordered the "barn red" color for him, and it showed up and the color was less barn red, and more purple. It was the weirdest shade of red I have ever seen, and completely misrepresented in the catalog and online. See that photo above?? That is the color his bed looks now that we had to PAINT over the weird purple-ish red color. PAINT over an already painted bed, and an expensive bed as well!! Shouldn't it already have come in "barn red"?! AH. That was problem number one. Problem number two came when we tried to put the darn thing together. It was an absolute nightmare. It was so complicated to get together and when I finally got it done and ready for the mattress to set it, it wouldn't fit the mattress!! So there I was, shoving a mattress into a bed frame that should have fit it easily. Ugh. So, we got it together eventually and Andrew has used it these past few years and it has turned out fine.
That is, until I had to take it apart to move it. Oh. my. gosh. After several failed attempts at getting this stupid bed apart, I resorted to using Andrew's mattresses with a regular bed frame in his new room and yesterday, I did the unthinkable to a Land of Nod bed. I ripped it apart with a pick-axe. Yep, my son's expensive bed frame now resides in the dump. So take my advice here, mommas- don't get duped by those cute catalog pages displaying the picture-perfect kids rooms, and be swindled into buying the products. I was cursing Land of Nod as I was swinging an axe yesterday.... AH, never again.

LOL. I had to post that cute note- not from my child, but I saw it on google hehe.
BUT, we do have our first loose tooth! Andrew was quite worried the other day when he realized that he had a wobbly tooth. Then there were tears at the thought of actually losing it. I think he was scared all of his teeth were going to fall out, never to return. I get it though, it is a scary thing to happen when you don't understand it haha! But after a little explanation, and some real assurance that the tooth WILL come back, Andrew is ok with it. He keeps wiggling his tooth and is talking about how he needs me to make him a tooth fairy pillow. :)
I was a little shocked at how early the tooth thing is happening, since Andrew is only 4 and a half. But after a little research, we learned the earlier you get your teeth as a baby, the earlier they are going to fall out. Andrew started teething around 4 months and got one tooth after another so darn quickly!
How about you all?! How early were those teeth coming in or falling out for your kiddos?! Any cute stories? I am keeping a close eye on Andrew's tooth, since I am afraid it will fall out and he won't notice it hehe. :) Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend... we are enjoying lots of rain this weekend, so I am a happy camper!! xoxox

I have a special man in my life this year for Valentine's... my silly little Andrew!! So this year, I decided that I am of course going to get Andrew a heart-shaped box of chocolates (his fave!) and I already bought him two of his favorite movies that we repeatedly check out from the library, but do not own. Night a the Museum and TMNT: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! :) I love Amazon, and I bought both movies for under a few dollars. Yay! I refuse to spend $20 on movies, yuck! Andrew will flip. AND there is sequel to Night at the Museum coming out, which he is all about. :)
What are you all doing for Valentine's Day?! And I hope you all enjoyed a happy weekend! xo!
