I resisted it. I didn’t want to buy a second crib. Some experienced moms with kids in elementary school and high school helped me see the light though. They all said they tried to put their first kids into a toddler bed too soon and should have waited as long as possible. For once, I decided to listen to the “been there, done that” words of unsolicited advice.
Baby girl has her own crib now, call it a three month birthday present. We’re keeping her in our room for another few weeks. I’ve been enjoying my uninterrupted sleep waaaaay too much to risk the kids waking each other up. But I foresee them cohabitating by October or November at the latest.
