Is It Wrong...

for your child to say I want the music back on, when you turn it down especially since it was Eminem?

Just Plain Old Sad

Last week my husband told me it was time to start looking for a 'big boy bed' for Tot. Tot is still happy in his crib, and so am I, but I know that unfortunately it is time. I have been looking for a red comforter to go with his room for a very long time. I even looked for one for S., and never found one. Well, today was the day. I found a beautiful red comfortable, whose price is even more beautiful. (S.'s Land of Nod quilt was $150.00, ridiculous I know!). Anyway, I also found the last package of Thomas and Friends sheets. They will match perfectly with the comforter. I think God is trying to send a message to me. I need to let his babyhood behind.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I am sad about this, because it is the official end of his babyhood. Yes, I know he's 3 1/2 years old, so he hasn't been a baby in a very long time, but him being in a crib kept the illusion alive. I have this pit in my stomach. There will be no more babiesfor us. And that's what we agreed to. That's what I want. I don't want another baby, I just wantTot to still be a baby. How have any of you coped with your youngest graduating to the big boy bed? I need advice on how to let go.

How can I let THIS go?
