I learned a long time ago that how Atalia wakes up for the day can also set her mood for the day as well. For example, if I rush her waking up process, we get a case of the grumpies and once those grumpies set in, they can be hard to shake. I have to go about it at her pace, gently, and softly. Lately though, it's been taking her what feels like FOREVER to want to get out of her bed! And I'm the kind of person that once I get up and go, I want to go, go, go! (it wears off at about 11) So, having that patience at that time is hard!
Is it time for a big girl bed? I do like that she stays contained and it's not like she has outgrown it physically. I'm afraid she won't stay in a toddler bed and then I can kiss nap time bye bye. And this little girl NEEDS nap time (not just Mommy). I feel like she seems to be getting too old for her crib. Is that just me? Any suggestions?
