Toddlerhood is such a wild ride! I remember when the triplets were infants and just as I got used to one stage, they would change, and our routine and schedule would need to change too. Now that they are toddlers, they are changing a little bit more slowly, but it seems the changes are really BIG ones.
The dreaded potty training project is still hanging over my head. I keep telling myself, "I'll do it after the holidays" like it is some sort of New Year's Resolution or something!
All of a sudden the kids don't NEED to be in a wagon or stroller. They can walk next to me, hold hands in a parking lot, and they do all of this quite well. I guess it makes things easier, but a small part of my heart breaks to think that they don't that safety and security anymore.
The kids are still in cribs (thank GOD!!) I guess they are unusual in that they have never climbed out. I planned on keeping them in their until at least Kindergarten (ha!) but Brady had to go and break a wrung on his crib the other day. He was falling down on purpose and being super silly, and I heard a wrung crack and fall onto the floor. It isn't fixable and now the pressure is on to get toddler beds for them. Wait a minute!!??! They will be able to get out of bed whenever they want, do whatever they want in their room? I want my control back!!! I'm seriously sweating this transition too...
So, they are growing, changing, exploring, testing. All things they are supposed to do, but all things that keep me on my toes every day. Thank goodness for Allie. She gladly wears diapers, rides in her stroller, and sleeps soundly in her crib!
