This is Big

My little, bitty AK, my baby, is now {sob} in a big girl bed and {sob} pretty much toilet trained.

Not that I am complaining, or trying to jinx myself. Really, I just can't believe it.

After a week of sleeping on a mattress on the floor and staying in her bed all night, we realized that AK would never go back in the crib again. So, on Saturday, with the girls at my parents' house, the Hoos and I disassembled the crib and put it in the basement.

And, after several weeks of wearing undies and bringing home plastic bags with soggy clothes, AK started coming home in the same clothes she wore to school. At home she would randomly pop up from whatever activity she was engaged in announcing, "I have to pee! Mommy, turn on the light! Don't help me!"

Not only are these two HUGE steps in AK's like, they are potentially pretty significant for me, too. Could it be that there are no more diapers or cribs in my future?

I remember reading your blog when AK was born. Has it really been that long? Time flies!

That one is up to you and the Hoos, I guess. :)

You're moving on in so many ways. But I'm personally not so convinced you are done with diapers....just a feeling.

Lily has been in a big kid bed since - no toddler bed since August and she is potty trained. She was easy to potty train once my hubby (not me) got down to it. So we are in the same spot - I sorta want another one but then I don't! You know the feeling.
