My husband, the pediatrician, and I all agree Mimi is too big for her crib. She is ready to be in a bigger bed. Now, not everyone agrees with me. Even my daycare provider exclaimed "Why would you do that!?" when I mentioned it to her. My friends with kids politely recommend I wait a little longer as they have with their kids. WTF people. Who puts my kid to bed EVERY NIGHT!? Me. Who knows my kids sleeping issues BEST? ME. Okay, so your kid couldn't climb out of their crib, or maybe Mimi is still a baby to you. She's not. The idea of taking down her crib breaks my heart into pieces and bring tears to my eyes. Seriously, it's pathetic. I tear up at the idea of tucking away the crib, mattress, fuzzy chenille pottery barn kids sheets, not to mention all the underbed storage! But she's not sleeping well, and at this rate with the kicking, she's going to break the crib rails. I kind of wanted to save the crib for one (or two :-) ) more babies.
|ahhh--the days of having a little muffin baby sleeping away in her crib.....|
We've been thinking about getting her a platform bed from Ikea. For two reasons, 1 we LOVE Ikea, and two, because the platform would be low to the ground so if/when she rolls out, she would be fine. If we get a bed more than 12 inches off the ground, we would probably have to put up a side guard. We've been also been considering some from potterybarnkids. Her shelf was from there, and yes they are expensive, but they're stuff really does hold up well and looks amazing. We'll see. It was suggested to us to just put her mattress on the floor for awhile while we shop for a bed.
I have officially registered for a 10K the first weekend in March. I figured this would help me continue to be motivated to run, an also I would be training harder so I can lose this LAST 10 POUNDS that's haunting me. So far it's not going well, Yesterday I ran 3.5 miles and if felt like my legs weighed 100 lbs each. It sucked. I had to push myself, I didn't enjoy it. I don't know if it was the change in where I was running, or the time of day, or the no coffee. I suspect it was lack of caffeine. SUCKS that I am so addicted to coffee lately. My husband keeps telling me to cut back, but I am having trouble functioning without it some mornings.
The good news is Todd from the 5K101 program just put out his 10K101 program! I literally yelled for joy when I saw this. His 5K program was the ONLY one I've tried that I completed. He kept me going. His 10K program isn't' free, but it's only $14.95, I've spent more $ on less desirable crap! So tomorrow I'm going to buy it and get started. It's a 6 week program and my 10K is in 6 weeks. Thanks Todd! I heart your running programs!
