My mom just got back from a two week trip to Georgia w/ my Grandmother. She found a toddler bed for DD at a junk/antique shop while there. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. I am so ready to have our bed back. Don't get me wrong, I loved having Celia close to us at night. It was nice because both DH and I work out of town. We only get a few hours a day with her so it was nice to get that time at night. BUT, I am now dying to get her out of my bed.
I had one of my horrible mommy moments this past weekend. She and I went to bed at 7:30 Sat night (early for me) because she was so tired and ill. However, I think she was too tired because she refused to go to sleep. She tossed and turned, moaned and groaned and continuously kicked me in the head, face or stomach. I was calm for a while, but by 9:30 I was sleepy. I was yelling to the top of my lungs for her to "be quiet and go to sleep".
Now I know she is only 18mos which is the reason I feel horrible for yelling. That wasn't going to do anything to calm the situation at all. But I'm sure we all have those moments. The one redeeming thing about it is that she isn't going to remember it.
I feel horrible that I haven't posted pics lately so I will remedy that this weekend. Until then, cross your fingers and pray that the transition to a big girl bed goes smoothly.
