Something I’ve found interesting about motherhood is that the things that you never dream would be hard can turn out to be the most challenging and other things that you dread end up being ridiculously simple.  Transitioning Parker’s nursery to a toddler room and her crib to a big girl bed happened to be one of the things that fell into the latter category.  I’m not sure why I was so unjustifiably afraid of removing those trusty crib bars that kept my toddler confined through the night, but I drug my feet long after she …
