When the kids are with you day in, day out, sometimes it is hard to see all the little changes in them.
These changes sort of creep up on you and then suddenly slap you in the face and you realise that they are suddenly more mature and are growing up before your eyes.
This has just happened to me with Sebby, my youngest and the baby of the family who is morphing into a “big boy” at an alarming rate.
Sebby’s speech was delayed and despite worries from the Health Visitor I knew that the poor boy just struggled to get a word in edgeways at home. I was right and even before the summer holidays he was coming on leaps and bounds but now you cannot shut him up and he can talk the hind legs off a donkey…….when he wants to that is.
We have just finished our potty training journey and it was surprisingly pain-free and he is successfully dry at night too, which leads us on to the next milestone.
Sebastian is now in a big boy bed!
Sebby’s toddler bed was making him unsettled. I am not sure if it was the mattress not supporting him or he was banging his head / hands as he slept but he always ended up in bed with us or Kian so we decided to buy him and Eliza some bunk beds.
After trawling several websites we finally decided on the Myles Bunk Beds from Wayfair which has shelving built into the back for the kids to store their favourite toys. It arrived within two days and took Hubby 5 hours to build, but it is strong, sturdy and the kids adore it.
I took Sebby to choose the duvet set he wanted and he chose a Paw Patrol set along with a Marshall cushion from Asda. I also found a fantastic 10.5 tog Single Bed Set from Silentnight for just £28.99 which comes complete with everything needed for Sebby’s new bed including a washable duvet, pillow and mattress protector.
Sebby loves his new bed as Daddy has installed a nightlight underneath it so he can play quietly without disturbing his sister.
It really has been a summer of changes for Sebastian with the final challenge of starting Nursery School. He attends 9-12 everyday as he now gets 15 hours of funding and loves it. He bounds into school full of confidence and I couldn’t be prouder!
My baby isn’t a baby or even a toddler anymore. As Sebastian says “I am a big boy now!”
