Growing up....

So my baby girl (2) is transitioning into a big girl bed. We took the front rail off her crib and turned it into a toddler bed. She is so funny, she sleeps in a regular bed for naps, but over night she insists on sleeping in her "baby bed".

Anyway with the front rail off, she can totally get in and out of her crib by herself, but when she drops something out of her bed (like a baby doll, spoon, or random bucket -she sleeps with really odd things) she calls for me to come get it for her, soon as I walk through the door then she hops out and gets it herself.

Yeah she thinks she is all independent, but she totally still needs me ;-)

I always found moments like that to be kind of bittersweet.  I'm thrilled to see my girls do new things on their own but in a way I am sad because they no longer need me in that area. kwim

That's awesome. My girls are 10 and 12 and it's just the same...they think they are independent, but they totally need me! It doesn't really change as they get older ;)

Awe that will be a bittersweet time too! I am so glad mom let us cook early on! Helped out so much as I got older. Even if at first it was spaghetti every time we cooked:-)
