But then I found a toddler bed on Craig's List for $25. The price was right. It is in excellent condition. It matches the rest of the furniture in her bedroom. (Which is a very boring white, but what can I say? It matches.)
So we did it.
She was so excited. She climbed right in, curled up, and said, "Light off, close door". It took a little while for her to go to sleep, but she finally did. And she slept all night.
Sleeping soundly, all stretched out.
She loved it.
This part? Not so much.
Things are changing at a very rapid rate around our house. Actually, it's been coming for a while but now it's going way too fast for me.
Tiffani and Justin will both be graduating from college in less than a month. My big kids are growing up. And mama's struggling to hold back tears throughout the day.
Life goes on. And it's a beautiful life.
