…because there is no way possible my baby girl is ready for a big girl bed.
But whether I want to believe it or not, Miss Georgia Grace moved to a futon underneath her brother over the weekend. The decision was quite sudden after she found a thrifted duvet set I'd bought and declared "Mine!"
She is so pleased with her bed and every guest has been brought to see it. She carries around the spare pillowcase. The babies are all put to bed about 50 times a day. When a bout of late night wakefulness caused me to suggest that she go into a cot, tears and sobs followed with her broken declaration:
"No! Me! Bed!"
She's only been in it a few days, but it is alrady littered with her most treasured things. Baby dolls, toy cars, trains and every book she can drag up the stairs and into the bed.
And as Ellis used to sleep with a 10in omlet pan at this age, we are counting ourselves lucky.
