It has been an emotional week. And I'm not even talking about our little trip to the ER.
First of all, Grace turned two years old. It may not seem like that big of a deal but it is to me. I've never had a two year old without also having a newborn or a baby on the way. Not only that, but Grace seems to be such a grown up two year old. There really are few traces of babyhood left.
Second, Grace is fully potty trained. While it is a very joyous event it just drives home how quickly my family is growing up and changing.
Third, and the biggest change, is that Grace has moved to a big girl bed. Since I have no more babies to speak of that means we had to take down the crib. It literally made me nauseous. As I was taking her baby bedding out of the crib I couldn't hold back the tears any longer. I just can't believe it has all gone this quickly. My boys came in the room and saw us taking the crib apart and they started to whine and cry about how much they'll miss having a baby to put in the crib. I begged them to stop talking about it but they just kept telling me, "But all of us have used that crib! I was a baby in there and now we don't have any more babies!" Eventually I had to kick them out of the room to keep myself from falling apart.
Luckily, the girl LOVED her new bed. It made the whole emotional debacle much more enjoyable.
She wanted to go to bed right away and it wasn't even dinnertime yet.
