The past few weeks have been crazy here. I can not express in words how tired I am. My days have been full of Starbucks, Weeds (already on Season 3) and Nurse Jackie. Did I mention the couch and a huge comforter? Kaylee has all of a sudden become terrified of her room or her bed at night. Even after putting her crib to the lowest setting and it coming up to her chin when she stands, she can still monkey her way over it. We have tried everything from lights, to reading to her, to sleeping on the floor until she falls asleep. Nothing works! At 3 am every night we hear a crash and then a scream and then little feet running into our room. I read online (you know, because online is like.. always right and all) that it could be a phase. We decided to just start all over and treat it like a big girl thing. We are selling her crib and dresser and went and bought her a big girl room set up and a gate for her door so we can lock her in (oops did I say that?) Its on back-order until May but we get the twin mattresses on Friday so we can work with her on it for a few weeks before going a little higher. I'll take pictures once we have it all set up. I'm hoping all the big girl room will make her want to stay in! We shall see. At least we don't have to worry about her getting hurt getting out of the bed anymore. Also... I may have failed to mention my son taught her how to hunt zombies... and now she runs around with his Nerf shotgun saying "pow pow zombies". She has no clue what a zombie is (not yet at least) but I'm guessing Hayden may have described it in enough detail to scare the bejesuses out of her... Hoping it's not related to her "room terrors".

Off to do some custom orders.. Hope everyone had a great weekend!


P.S It's snowing ... Feel bad for me? hehe


  1. I hope this is just a phase as well. Our little girl is growing up too fast for her own good. We will see soon if a big girl bed works. And look on the bright side, we will be the most prepared family when the zombie invasion finally happens.

  2. awww i can understand being tired and probably being a little frustrated but i think it's kind of sweet that she runs to you every night. and at least she'll be ready for the zombie apocalypse, lol.

    and i feel really bad for you that it's snowing! i have a cousin on the afb in minot and i always just feel so bad for anyone up there! winter weather sucks so bad anyway.

    have a nice sunday!

  3. I've never experienced real snow before. But the fake one is freezing cold!

  4. awww~ I'm so sorry to hear that things have been really crazy for you. Hope you'll get a good rest soon! Takecare! *hugs* :)

  5. 1 of my friends is going through that with her daughter too right now. Hope it doesn't last long. I miss hearing from you (your letters).

  6. Hi Lindsay, I went through a phase like that with Emma, I certainly hope it is a phase and hope she feels safe again! Donna xox
    P.S. Did you get my last letter?

  7. That sounds awful! At least Shes not getting night terrors! Those are bloody frightening to see! My wee cousin used to get them and be screaming the house down with her eyes open and walking around but still asleep. Scared the life out of me! I'm sure she Is a wee terror though!

  8. Oh no! My brother did this too. My parents took away the crib and just put a twin mattress on the bed (knowing he'd just try to escape from a normal bed as well). Good luck!
