I know I am years away from being a true "empty-nester", but there is another nest that is empty in this house for the first time in 5 years. Andrew moved into a big boy bed, actually we moved his crib mattress to under Jacob's bunk bed. It's never been that big of deal when this happened with the other kids, because there was always another baby waiting to get into the crib, but this time, there is not. The crib sits empty in the boys room, with out a mattress, waiting to be disassembled and stored (just in case). Part of me wants to put Andrew back in there so I will still have a baby, but I know he is ready and old enough to be done with it. and truthfully, the other part of me is ready for our next phase of childhood.
