About a month ago we put together Gia's "Big Girl Bed" and she has been sleeping in it. Given our remarkable issues with sleep, we have found that this is an improvement. The rules are as follows:
1) No crying.
2) When the sunshine light comes on, you can come to Mommy and Daddy's room.
She follows rule number two much better than number one. But all the same, she stays in her room all night which is a victory as far as we are concerned.
For the last week Ralph has been telling Gia when she comes to our room to bring a diaper with her (yes, the potty training transition has been more difficult than the big girl bed) otherwise one of us is forced across the house to retrieve a diaper to change our darlings wet bottom. Gia has not found the desire to grab such a diaper.
Well this morning...she brought a diaper with her.....and Ralph is out of town on business. Go figure. Isn't that just how kiddos work?
(P.S.: I will post pictures of her room when we finish decorating it....right now we are mid decoration and it looks a little sketchy.)
