I took down the crib today. Jess doesn't stay in it anymore. She has mastered the scaling of the prison walls and knows to how to wake up her big sister in the middle of the night to get the bedroom door open. They both come into our room EVERY NIGHT. So, what's the point of leaving the crib up? There just isn't one.
Julia sleeps on the floor by my side of the bed and I end up pulling Jess into bed with us. Todd doesn't allow it too long because he can't sleep so he puts her on his side of the bed with the threat to, "Be quiet or you're going back to your crib!" In time Jess falls to sleep followed quickly by her mom and dad only to find the morning sunlight is too quickly right around the corner.
With the crib being taken down this morning the girls were enjoying jumping on the crib mattress. Julia started jumping from the top bunk down to the ground and told me, "Mom! When you grow up to be a kid you can do this!" I can't wait to grow up to be a kid. It looks way more fun!
