Glory is just over 31 months! 31! She’s well on her way to her 4th year on this planet and I’m just shaking my head…
It’s been a big weekend at our house. Or maybe I should say, it’s been a big weekend for Glory!
I think I mentioned that she started crawling out of her crib in November. She mastered it in about 1.8 seconds but only did it when we were watching. She never climbed out after bedtime or nap time. Odd, I know. But not anymore. Last week she crawled in & out and in & out. Begging her to stay in just became a game and I started worrying about how quickly she’d do it – afraid she’d fall and break a bone. Since her naps don’t happen most days (God help me), we decided we’d just bump her up to the next level – a toddler bed.
It was an easy switch. Her crib transitions so, just like that, her crib was gone. She hardly noticed but there were some tears shed on my part. Bye, bye baby. And it didn’t matter much. She still climbs over the side – just to bother me.
And since we lost our baby anyway, we thought we’d try the potty training this weekend too. We bought one of those fancy seats that has 2 parts – one for us and one for her. We also bought a pretty stool to help her up. So far, so good. The alarm is set for every 15 minutes. We have “days of the week” panties and she ended today with “Tuesday”. Not bad.
She hates it. I thought she would. It takes her away from what she’s doing and it’s kept us home all. day. long. I’m not married to the idea. If it takes another few months, I’d be fine. We’ll let her guide us and see how it goes. Today, it’s gone a lot like this:
Wish me luck – I’ll be sticking close to home for a few days.
