What goes up, must come down...


OK, actually it doesn't go up... it's just that it's kinda high and now, it's coming down...

I'm talking about our master bed. Our King size Cellini bed. It's not even 2 years old... but because its kinda high (about 3 feet I think), hubby and I decided it's time to dismantle it and lower down the mattress. We've been dragging the decision to dismantle it but two days ago, Ben has started to up his butt and any of these days he will master the crawling tricks and if we don't do anything soon, accidents might happen. A three-feet fall on to the floor is not a joke.

So, today after swaying Ben off to sleep in the afternoon, I got MIL to watch after Ben in the playpen while I helped hubby to dismantle the bed. I did not managed to take the before picture but our bed is this design (taken from the website):



Picture below is the King size mattress that came with the bed which we put aside:



I remembered when the bed got delivered to our house, it took 4 of the staff to carry it up to 2nd floor where our master room is.



That's hubby in the picture above, unscrewing the bed frame...



This is taken after we have put back the mattress onto the floor. We also added a new single bed mattress right next to the King size (we are not kiasu nor kiasi) - just that since Ben is going to start crawling soon, better we add more crawling space for him hahahaha... Oh, we surrounded the mattresses with those alphabets mat - looks nice, eh?

We're still getting used to the new 'heights' of the bed (mattress) now - in fact, hubby just went 'woooowww... I thought still got some more space when I got off the bed, forgot bed lower now hahaha'.

Apart from the master bed, we have also dismantle the baby crib. I think we only used it in the 1st week after delivery, since then Ben sleeps with us so that baby crib sort of end up becoming my storage rack where I put my water bottle, books, toys, etc etc..

Why no one told us NOT to buy so nice expensive and high bed before we got married? Hmmm...
