I ordered sheets today for Teagan. Toddler sheets. Soon, we’re going to convert her crib (yes, she’s still in her crib), to a toddler bed. We may put the side rail on, instead of leaving it open like this. We’ll need to see.
The sheets are ivory and sage, with an extra pillow case and flat sheet. I even ordered a pillow for her, so she doesn’t need to use her lady bug pillow pet every night. It was much harder than I expected to find a simple sheet set, with no princesses or giraffes, that would match her existing bedding. Anyway, I found some.
Just to make her squeal, I ordered a pink blanket. It shouldn’t clash too much with the greens and ivory and cream and brown of her room. She’ll really like the blanket.
We’ll need to put the gate up at the top of the stairs and figure out how to keep her contained at night. Hopefully, she’ll be good, and there won’t be any real issue. Her room will need to be finally childproofed, though it mostly is. Just stuff that she may mess around with, and possibly break, if she gets out of bed.
The past few times I’ve gone into her room, either in the morning, at bedtime, or in the middle of the night, she’s tried to climb out of her crib. She really didn’t do more than attempt to throw a leg over the front side of the crib, but still. I’d much rather move her before she actually does climb out and possibly hurt herself. Have it be a treat instead of a necessity because she’s misbehaving.
The sheets should be here soon. I hope she likes them, and the change in her bed. She’s becoming such a big girl. I’ll ask her to be my friend and to stay in her big girl bed at nap time and bed time. Tell her that it would make me, and dada, and LaLa and PopPop, and probably NayNay and Nana and Auntie Em happy.
Her crib does convert to a full size bed, but I don’t think any of us are ready to move her to a real bed. Not yet. She can be my baby for just a little bit longer. Thank you.
