Toddler Bed Drama

Last weekend Ben was fishing and I wasn't feeling well, so I took Allie's mattress out of her crib and put it on the floor in the "playroom" so she could lay down and watch tv. She loved it and pitched a fit when I wouldn't let her sleep on the floor that night. So that got us thinking that she was probably ready for a toddler "big girl" bed. We also want to turn the playroom into her room and leave her current room for baby #2. The crib is huge and we would have to completely take it apart to move it, so it makes sense this way.

So last night we went to Wal-Mart to get the bed. I pulled four possible bed sets, Dora the Explorer, Elmo, Mickey Mouse and Princesses.

She knew right away which one she wanted, Dora.

So in the buggy it went.

We washed it when we got home so it would be all soft and smell good.

The ever so reliable daddy put the bed together.
She jumped right in, said good night many times and said she was sleepy.

Yeah right. There were monsters in her room. Never any monsters in the other room, but monsters in this room. So the ever so reliable daddy sprayed monster repellant (aka Febreze) to get rid of the monsters.
Then she wanted the tv on, we said no, and she threw this little tantrum.

After another half hour of crying, screaming and getting out of bed, the mattress went back in her crib, and so did she. We shall try again tonight. Maybe it was just too much excitement in one night. Who knows?
