The crib.

It is still in Beanie's room, unused and everything. Sure she has slept in it a few times. Mostly for naps. She has never slept an entire night in it; she hasn't slept in it at all for months. She plays in it sometimes while I'm tidying up her room. We've been staging the house, getting rid of tons of things we don't need or use, putting even more in storage. For some reason, hubby has an attachment to the crib. He doesn't want it to go. My idea was to take the crib out of her room and rearrange some of the other furniture (namely the glider) to make the room look more spacious. He wants to keep the crib. For what purpose I don't know. It would seem to me that trying to get her to sleep in her crib now is basically pointless. Should she sleep on her own sometime in the near future, I would imagine it would make more sense to have her in a toddler bed. Sure, the crib converts so we could use it that way. I don't know, I'm mostly trying to wrap my head around why we should keep it in her room. My dad wanted to buy the crib for us; he wanted to buy something that would really be used. He ended up buying the changing table as it was more expensive. He would be glad to know its gotten about 5,000 more uses out of it than the crib. I don't even know if we should keep the crib. Will we use it next time around? Right now I think I'd rather just have a CA King bed! Its funny how my thinking has evolved since we purchased the crib, and funny that it is so nice and shiny new even though we've had it for 15 months.


  1. Desmond never used his crib either. I ended up loaning it to a friend who needed it and uses it! Desmond has ended up with his own Queen sized bed. He only got that bed because we had one for guests, otherwise I would have bought him a full size. Anyway, getting him to sleep on his own was way easier with a big bed because I was able to sleep with him in his room for a while before we transitioned him to sleeping by himself. (Just a thought!) Now he sleeps all by himself, all night long in his own bed (and has for several months!)
