Last night we had three hours of “I want to be with mommy and daddy but why would I want to sleep in their bed, their bed is for playing” hysteria from A in the middle of the night. At the two and a half hour mark I escorted her back to her crib, and, she climbed right back out. Rather unsuccessfully and unsafely. @&#%. We have to convert the crib to a toddler bed. I’m going to cry. Not only does that mean my little baby girl is growing up, it also means that I will never.sleep.again.



  1. I am so, so sorry. That’s definitely a milestone that is bittersweet.

    We converted M’s crib to a toddler bed before she figured out how to climb out, but I fear what we will face with J, who is already our little climber.

    Sympathy. Lots and lots of sympathy. Lots and lots and lots of sympathy.

    I don’t suppose she wants to sleep with her brother? Keep him awake rather than you?

    Ha. Yeah.

  4. Not good! I hope everything works out. And chichimama, just to let you know in case you didn’t want it there, you gave your daughter’s name in this post.

    Thanks Gina…missed that one. It’s usual C’s name I have to catch myself on as we call her A around the house too…
