At our house you don't graduate to a big bed from a crib until you use the potty. Pants decided that she was ready for the challenge. When she started to get the hang of it we all decided she was ready for a new bed.
We were all so excited. Her Daddy took the time to put it together. We put the sheets on and all of her stuffed animals. Then she was ready to try it out. She snuggled right in and pretended to sleep. Throughout the day she kept checking to make sure it was still there!
I really love the fact that I can lay with her at night and cuddle. We say our prayers and give hugs and kisses. Sometimes I watch her at night after she is asleep. She looks so small in her BIG, new bed.
