on Allie's 'new' Toddler Bed
Let's just say that I'm not so ready for the independent, decisive little girl I will have (she is still a baby!!!). We had gone through a lot of our bedtime routine, but after 100 books (give or take one) she was still seeming to go strong. So, I announced it was "time for bed". My expectations were the same as they have been for 3 years now... we'd rock and give each other sweet Eskimo kisses until she fell asleep or close enough that she would prefer to be stretched out in her crib. However, tonight, my baby promptly got out of my lap and walked over to her new toddler bed, climbed in and fell asleep. No playing around at all.
The only thing about this story is... SHE ISN'T READY FOR A TODDLER BED! Okay, maybe I'm not ready. And, since I"m the Mommy... I"m playing the Mommy Card and I win. She is in the crib now safe and sound.
Seriously... we never even talked about sleeping in it - who does she think she is growing up so fast?!?!
