ON TOP OF HER CHANGING TABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We switched her to her Big Girl Bed this weekend; until yesterday, it was a fairly smooth process, with only one bad night (she was awake till nearly 1am the first night) and one bad day of naps. Fortunately, after that, she began to go to bed easily and has been sleeping through the night (and back to her normal nap schedule).
Then, YESTERDAY arrived and delivered a naughty revelation to the Little Lady’s mind: she realized that she doesn’t have to stay in her big girl bed if she doesn’t want to. Sigh.
The result of that knowledge? Her sock drawers and PJ drawer were completely emptied during naptime . . . . as well as the entire, brand new container of wipes! Grrrrrr.
Then, last night, the Little Lady woke up at 2 am and didn’t go back to sleep till around 4:30! She wasn’t just awake . . . she was WIRED the entire time.
When we first realized she was awake, we decided not to go in her room as she wasn’t crying. The Little Lady was simply awake, singing to herself and playing with her Fisher Price aquarium. (Oh, yeah — just because we got rid of the Baby Crib didn’t mean we could get rid of everything — the aquarium HAD to stay)
It was when she started kicking the wall OVER AND OVER that Hubby decided to go in (and, knowing he was tired and not really in the mood to deal with a wide awake toddler, I followed).
I swear — that kid acted like she had a hidden stash of chocolate somewhere in that room. She was absolutely NUTS! Out of her bed, turning on every musical toy and dancing like a crazy woman . . . singing, laughing. Even though it was nearly 3 am by this point, it was hilarious to watch her; we couldn’t help but laugh because her behavior was so spastic — completely different than normal.
I thought that this “middle of the night” behavior would be the worst of it.
I was wrong.
This morning that little rat climbed up her changing table so she could look out the window; I found her when I went in to get her up for the day. I nearly had a HEART ATTACK! (yes, it was that dramatic)
Needless to say — the changing table is leaving the room TODAY!
Sigh . . . and I wonder why I am tired all of the time.
