bargains and beds

Yesterday afternoon was a bargain bonanza. I not only found the 2 cute pairs of shoe for Miss Peanut Butter but I found this.....

in the toy clearance for $14.98. It was regularly priced at $59.99. I know I paid 7 bucks just for the Belle shimmer one. Had I not won Zoe's contest and had a gift card I may not have bought this, okay, who am I kidding I would have, but it made the decision a whole lot easier. Thanks Zoe! PB is going to freak. You can never have too many princesses. I haven't decided if I'm going to keep it for some occasion or just give it to her. It is in hiding for now. Target had tons on clearance it was a good thing I was time constrained or I would have done some real damage. Alas, I had to come home and make dinner for the family.
Later in the evening, Peanut Butter, J, and I were in her room, cleaning the disaster area. I should say I cleaned as PB climbed into her crib and then did what I was hoping she would never do, climb out. J looked at me and said, "Great, now what?" In denial, I said it will be fine she's forget about it and she'll scream a bit but she will stay in it and go to bed. Yeah, not so much. We had the screaming and the crib shaking, but that was followed by the patter of little feet up and down the hallway. I even tried to get her to sleep in the big bed, but being the great parents that we are we don't have those door knobby things to keep her in so as soon as I would cover her up and walk out there she was opening the door for the next hour. I got in my bed, she joined me and since she was actually staying in the bed, *sigh* she slept in our bed. ARGH, this bedtime nightmare never ends. Maybe it will warm up enough for me to venture out and get a door knob thing, or like J said maybe she will be sleeping with us until she's 16.

Yes I remember those days! My girls starting sleeping in their big girls beds (toddler beds) when they turned 2. It did take a few night of constantly putting them back in bed over and over, but eventualy they were excited about sleeping a a "BIG GIRL BED" We have never allowed them to sleep with us EVER! Our bed room is our's-they have there own I don't know if that helped or not, but our bed was not an option. Good Luck! and stay strong. :)

Ooh, that was a great find. I'm glad Emy is not standing over my shoulder at the moment! LOL

You know, I never minded my kids sleeping with me. Emy still does and the boys do occasionally. Especially on nights when it's really cold . . . well cold by Houston standards.

Anyway, I never minded because they sleep. If I'm uncomfortable I get up and go to their bed (that's why I bought them all decent beds). Also, I know that they will not always want to sleep with me.

PB is very young, she'll figure it out eventually . . . in the meantime, don't beat yourself up over it.
