Not too long ago my little girl got a big girl bed! She was super excited and said, “Mom watch me!!” as she climbed in and out all on her own. One of her favorite things about her new big girl bed is that Mommy can now lay beside her and read her bedtime stories. Another favorite, is that she can get out of bed after we closet the door and read all the books in her bookshelf by herself!
So far we haven’t had too much trouble with her not sleeping. Prior to taking the crib apart she would sing and read herself to sleep almost every night so it’s not that big of a change for her. What do I love about it? I love that she can play in her room in the morning when I’m not completely awake yet, I like that she still sings herself to sleep and I love listening to it, and I love that she likes to play in there even when it’s not bed time!
Other things going on around here? I’m finally getting my birthday cabinet cleaned up and moved to my studio so I can use it there. I need storage there so much more than I do here and I’m going to save up my pennies and buy another one for our place 🙂
I’m also getting my budgeting spreadsheet together so I can show you all how I do my own stress free budgeting! It’s made money less of an issue in our house and more of something we can just rely on. Along with the spreadsheet and my explanation on how to use it, I am also working on my couponing! That extra shelf I’m going to save up and buy is also going to be great storage for the items I’ll be stocking up on at the grocery store.
If anyone is interested on how I do my couponing (not the traditional way but still saves money) I’d be more than glad to do a post about that as well!
So who said it was no fun growing up? NOT ME!!
