Before the toddler bed there was peace in this household. Evenings were for sleep and all living creatures did just that. But then…
Night 1: There is peace
Night 2: Alice falls out of her crib
Night 3: Alice climbs out of her crib
Night 4: Alice is in her new toddler bed
Nights 5-infinity: Alice runs into her parents room five times in the night, screeching to a halt and yelling, “Mommy, get UP!” at the top of her lungs.
Lord help us.
