I still feel this way...
But the twin we had been using was barrowed and I wasn't going to paint it and the mattress/boxspring needed replacing. I remembered a friend of mine had a daybed with a trundle underneath. She is now married and the bed sits in her parents basement. I made a few calls and found out she was willing to part with it for a VERY good price. Now, to surprise Butter.
I told her Saturday morning that we were going to get her a "new" girl bed for her. One that in time would be useful for sleep-overs. She seemed excited. Until bedtime came and she wanted her old bed. She was afraid she knock her head on the railings...which is why there ar pillows all around the bed.
She woke up the next day and had cleared off her bed saying she just needed more room!
It was so cute. It's been 3 nights now and she's come to love her bad, she now keeps asking about the sleep-overs.
What she said she likes most about the bed: "I like the heart and the gold things they look like a princess bed."
It sure does Buttercup. It sure does.
