Anna June got her big girl bed last night. "So I won't fall out," she said. We settled on an inexpensive "cherry" model from Wal-Mart. The good news about the toddler bed is that it comes with its own rails, is low to the ground in case she should fall, and uses the mattress from the crib. The bad news is that she can only use it until she reaches 50 pounds. By then, she'll be ready for something new.
AJ went in to the store requesting a Dora bed. We settled for Dora sheets, although the fancy sheet set was a little bit much for me. I said I didn't care what she picked, as long as she'd go to sleep. It took about an extra hour to shop and put it together, so AJ got into her bed about 9:00. Of course, she didn't go to sleep right away. She was far too excited. And there was still the standard stalling of water, baby dolls, etc.
But it must have worked in some way - not a peep out of her yet. She looks extra sweet sleeping in it - I can see her face clearly instead of through the bars. I will hate to wake her up to go to school!
