What a big step not just for little one.
Oh! The anxiety that step for her mum!
Was she ready, was she scared- would she cry?
Her very own big bed in which to lie.
She was growing so fast day by day,
The tiny little baby days, so far away
I had to let go and let her move on.
We looked at some beds and found just the one.
I read some info and gleaned some news,
From Rochelle’s’ and Gill’s nurturing views.
Rochelle’s* ‘let them be independent and free'.
Gill* said 'feel the space - play happily'.
The bed arrived, all flat packed and boxed.
Daddy Stepped up with tools – he wouldn’t be foxed!
His little assistant was his daughter by his side.
They constructed the bed and followed the guide.
It stayed in the lounge for a day or 2,
We waited for the mattress to come through.
There we read books and made tents with a rug,
Tucked teddies in bed and kissed them – all snug.
Plump pillow, clean sheets - tonight was the night
Oh what a reaction! Her sheer, utter delight!
She bounced and giggled and rolled with Joy
She fell back and whooped. No acting coy
Such an easy transition, the new bed was a breeze.
Good bye baby cot, hello bed by myself with ease.
The cot’s in the loft for the next little one,
Next time I won’t be such an anxious mum!
The bed was the KidKraft Sleigh bed
Some of the images are blurred-there was A LOT of movement and fun!
