The first night in a big girl bed has come and gone – and technically it’s not a big girl bed, but whatever this is still a huge deal.
This kid slept in her “big girl bed” all night!!!!! I swore she was going to escape at 3am and wake us up – but nope! She stayed in her bed all night!! And, even more exciting a she didn’t fall out of it! Yet. Haha as a precaution, we even put couch pillows by the foot of it, hoping to soften the fall.
A few months ago, she fell off of OUR bed (which is practically 30 feet off the ground), and face planted the terrazzo floors. I swore she had a broken face and I was up for the worst mother of the year award, but she survived unscathed.
See – The Chech has a pretty hard time sleeping when she’s sick. She usually finds her way into our bed around 3-4am because that’s also about the time we decide can’t get up again to make sure she’s still alive. But the last few weeks this little big girl has managed to fall asleep on her own, in her crib BY HERSELF! This being a huge deal, I decided it was time to reward her.
It seems that whenever I’m cleaning my house, I find little projects like this to distract me from what I should be doing. This little redecorating project was exactly what that was.
I realized I should’ve taken some before photos – but whatever this will do.
Best part of all this – was I did it all while she was napping in the other room. So when she woke up, she was SOOOO happy about her room that she wanted to lay down in her big girl bed for a little while.
She laid there for another 15 minutes just pretending to sleep and be a big girl. God I love her. I’m so grateful to be her Mama.
