Claire is at this very moment falling asleep in her big girl bed. Her Pap-pap brought it over tonight, phimosis and Claire wanted it set up tout de suite. She is very excited and demanded that we dismantle her “cribby.”
I’d been planning on putting her in a big girl bed ever since she learned how to climb out of the crib herself many months ago. We talked up the big girl bed to get her ready, buy since she was a little attached to the crib. What I was unprepared for was how I would feel. This is the first time in nearly five years that we don’t have a tiny person in a crib. As I dismantled the crib, the memories of setting it up for the first time were so vivid. Could it really have been five years ago?
