We are about to move Jocelyn to her toddler bed. I’m imagining there will be tears and shrieking. And when I stop crying and shrieking, she’ll probably get up out of bed and roam around the house. We’ve considered buying bubble-wrap to cover all exposed surfaces. Maybe a Velcro suit and matching sheets that can keep her from moving too far?
Aja’s sleep habits have prompted this move. I’m glad she’s growing, but she’s getting too big for the bassinet and needs to move into the crib. She was a sleeping baby, but now she wakes in the night because she has no space to move and roll. Some mornings (is 3am really the morning?) she decides that she is wide-awake, and a bottle only fuels her energy and she wants to play.
It’s going to be tough. It may be ugly. But we’ll make the transition and have our room back. Let’s hope that doesn’t lead to more children.
