Well, this is it. The crib is gone, and in its place is now a big girl bed. Isn't it lovely? I think so. I wish Neely thought so. And before any of you character-haters notice and give me a hard time - yes, those are Tinkerbell sheets. I have never seen anybody get so excited about sheets as Neely did when we were selecting them at Target. We thought it might help her get excited about the new bed. It didn't. She hates the bed. She starts crying before we can even lay her down in it, be it at bedtime or nap time.
This is a new experience. Aidan never cared where he slept. For a long time, he'd climb out of his bed and fall asleep on the floor. He finally figured out that the bed was more comfortable, but changing from crib to toddler bed, toddler bed to twin was no sweat. I should have known Neely would be a diva. Oh, well. We can sleep when we're dead, I suppose. ;)
The room is now a work-in-progress again. We need to rearrange the furniture some more and start figuring out where to hang things. It feels like there's more blank space now. I'll share as I figure out how to fix it.
One more thing, please don't criticize the photo. Nobody would be still or look at me. These children are constant motion, and the blurred photo is only evidence of thus.
