We will be making the transition to a big girl bed this weekend. I had planned on waiting until well after the new baby arrives, but a storm of different circumstances has made it readily apparent that now is the time (2 year molars, anyone? Whew!), and I feel like it’s now or three months from now, because I don’t want to be navigating this change while we are welcoming Baby Sister into the house. So, this weekend it is! I read that it can be fun to let the toddler pick out her bedding, so we made a quick Ikea run this morning, and I gave Vivi a few choices, and she picked the rainbow dots above. I think it was a smart choice. I’m not planning on changing too much in her room, as I don’t want to rock the peanut boat too much before the biggest change of her life arrives, so I’m trying to keep it as minimally invasive as possible. I’ll admit it, though – I’m terrified. Vivi has done remarkably well with every other transition up until this point while I have dreaded each one. I’m praying she will surprise me again this time. Any words of wisdom or encouragement as we navigate this change?
(p.s. Happy 2013 – hope all of you enjoyed a Merry Christmas!)
