A Big Girl Bed for Kate!

After Kate almost killed herself climbing out of her crib, I decided it was time to move her to a toddler bed. I must admit, taking the crib down made me a little bit sad. I am not ready for my baby to grow up. But she looks so blasted cute in the big girl bed that it makes up for it. Here goes nothing!! (May the force be with me.)


Last night she kept getting out of the crib and when I would say "Kate do you need a spank?" She would high-tail it down the hall saying, "Night-night mommy." Finally, I just ignored her. I could hear her talking to herself and then she finally quit. When I went to check on her, I realized she had totally stripped naked (I have a picture, but didn't feel like I should post it. So if you want to see it ask me.) and fell asleep on the floor next to the bean bag in the den. What a nut!


She's still not asleep as I type this. She keeps coming out of her room and I can hear her running around like a maniac in her room. Halle and Alyssa won't stop giggling. I CAN'T wait for my basement to be done!! Why oh why did she have to learn how to get out of the crib?

Good luck! I remember with my kids. Locking them in their rooms for the first week. (safety locks worked for a while) But mine were younger. We put our crib up in the basement for company if you ever want to visit it! lol
It's the only baby item we've kept. It liberating getting the "baby stuff" outta there.

She looks like she loves her new bed. Too cute! I will be thinking of you tonight. (;

PS I love your new countdown.

I remember those times!! I shut Cam in his room, he didn't know how to open the door, so it was okay, but SHEESH!! I had a friend once who put up a baby gate in front of the bedroom door.....
Good luck!!

Oh, she's so adorable. I'm surprised it's taken her this long to find her way out of the crib. She's such and adventurous little thing. Good luck.

I'm so sorry you had to move on to a real bed for Kate. I'm still hanging on to the crib for Emma. How's it going now?
