I have been having a problem with the little one this last week. She is already trying to climb out of her crib. Yes, already. The only problem is that her legs are at that "in-between" stage. Too skinny to be fat, too fat to be skinny. So they get stuck between the slats on the crib. YES, this is a saftey standard crib. And an expensive one at that!
The other day she bruised her little thigh trying to get it out. I put her in bed for her nap and she was crying for a few minutes. This is not unusual. Then it got a little louder and severe sounding. I felt SOOO bad! It's happened a few more times since then. In fact, I was getting to the point I couldn't let her cry at all in the crib, because I was afraid she would get hurt! Mommy cannot be a good mommy when baby doesn't have a nap, you know?
Sunday we had what we refer to as "church at home." Our church has a general conference which is on TV twice a year. She needed the nap so bad. I couldn't focus. I was losing it. So this was my solution:
Also, I came up with a quick sit on the couch and pay attention, but also keep busy craft for Ainsley. I found it at this website. http://k2andkids.blogspot.com/2009/03/tuesday-tackle-sewing-project.html
