we put her in her toddler bed.
this toddler bed was made by my father in law.
this bed is super sturdy and has survived
and now she gets it.
we anticipated a hard transition, but she's handled it pretty well and she even managed to take a nap or two in it as well.
boys vs girls : totally different breed
we also minimized their "stuff" remember the whole get rid of your crap motto? i do it every month with the boys room. they seem to think that rocks and dirt with an occasional lizard thrown into the mix need to be brought into the house. the husband is working on getting a "rock garden" going just for them to keep the "nature" outside of our house. i think we've convinced them (especially after they tragically killed the last lizard...probably scared it to death) that their nightstand drawer was not to be used as a holding cell for any more live animals...
