Holy Crap

So yesterday we tried Charlotte in the twin bed for a nap.  She wouldn't lay down there, so we jailed her in the crib and moved her after she fell asleep.  Last night she slept in the crib as usual.  Today she had her nap in the pack and play, because we were down at my parents' house to help dad install a new storm door.  And to provide a Charlotte fix for Grandma, of course. 

Tonight she insisted that she wanted to go night-night in the bed.  She collected her blanket and her bears, laid down, we turned out the lights and left.  It is dead quiet up there.

It *can't* be this easy.

My fear?  She's up there uncontainerized.  That's terrifying.

Just remember, her name is Charlotte...not Magnus, Cordelia or Geoffrey.

Correct - we never needed a lid for the crib.

You mean she hasn't yet figured out how to uncontainerize herself from the crib? Lucky you. I think Annie had that down by 18 months, and if I didn't put a second gate above the first in the door to her room, she'd be over that one pretty quickly too.

Nope - she put the foot up, we scowled at her, she pulled it back in. Also, the sides on her crib are really high - if not for the drop side, I wouldn't be able to get her in and out without a step stool.

Some children respond to scowls. Annie was not one of them.

So we gave in to the inevitable, and left the side down so she wouldn't have as far to fall.
