Tonight was the first night we let our son sleep by himself in his new double bed. We've been sleeping with him in the bed for the past several days to get him used to the bed and to make sure he doesn't fall off in the middle of the night. When I left him tonight, I told him that he is going to have to sleep all by himself and he started to cry. I gave him a hug and a kiss, reassured him that mommy loves him, and left the room. I was so sad to leave him. he looked so small in a double bed. I'm going to miss putting him in a crib. Children are forced to grow up too fast.
Well, turns out he cried for only 5 seconds after I left his room so maybe he's not that sad to be transitioning from his crib afterall.
