I bought this for my 3yo daughter and then cried like a baby.

Every parent has that moment. The moment when you realize your little baby isn’t a baby anymore. I’ve had it so times with my oldest daughter Lily I think they’ve become a blur, lol. But recently, the first “moment” happened with my three year old daughter Luna, except when it happened with her, I cried like a baby. Literally. I’m thinking it’s because I know this is the last “baby” we will have in our house. Waaaaaa. Yep, just typing that makes me cry.
File May 01, 8 22 39 PMFor the last three years, Luna has slept in her crib. Obviously. We bought one of those convertible crib things so her crib went from a crib to a toddler bed. Then we decided it was time to graduate her to a “big girl bed” and while I thought I would be ok with it since I was perfectly fine when we did it with her sister, nothing prepared me for how emotional I actually was about it. Sigh. We ordered a sweet old-fashioned bed because her crib was also old-fashioned. I picked out some cute twin bedding and some sheets, like all of a sudden I am an interior decorator. lol I was actually excited when I was getting the bed all ready for her and then she got in it and I totally fell apart. She looks so so tiny. Instantly, I wanted to put the crib back together and throw the twin bed out the window.

I am sure I will get used to it at some point, but I kinda don’t want to. I don’t want her to grow up. Either of them. Big girl talks with her older sister, big girl beds with her. I hate it all. Waaaaaaa. Ok, so I don’t hate it, I just don’t like it. So there. Full honesty. I’m a pansy Mommy. I’m an emotional sap. Please tell me I’m not alone though…that there are other pansy parents out there! 🙂

Lord help me when they go to college.
