Project 52: Week 43

I'm the kind of girl who prefers ripping the band aid off instead of slowly peeling it and prolonging the anxiety (and the pain).  I feel this mentality has transferred over to my parenting, and so far, it's worked out pretty well for me.  I put my babies in their cribs in their own rooms the first night home from the hospital...why bother with the stress of the transition from bassinet to crib?  When I potty trained my oldest, we quit diapers cold turkey (with the exception of naptime and bedtime until she woke up dry for a while).  My latest head first dive was taking Camryn out of her crib and putting her in a big girl bed.  No toddler bed.  No rails.  Just a mattress and box spring on the floor until she's a little bigger and can climb up on a bed with an actual frame.  How did that work out, you ask?

So far, so good!  Up next...potty training (cold turkey, of course)!

  1. Hi, just stumbled on your blog from Simply Modern Mom today - really love the beddings! Just a quick question.. how old is Camryn? I also have a daughter who's almost too long for her crib but I don't really want the hassle of getting a toddler bed and then throwing it out before buying a big girl bed.. but I'm thinking she might be too small for a big girl bed, she's almost 2 :p

  2. Hello! I am working on a book development project. I am writing a children's book about the transition from crib to "big kid bed." I am looking for photographs to use in my book, and I really like the photo you have posted to your blog of your daughter lying in her bed. I am writing to ask if you would be willing to give me rights to use the photograph in my book. I will need permission to use it for commercial use. Please let me know if you have questions about the content of the book. Thank you!
