Empty nest


Our little cherub turned 6 months today. To mark this milestone, we moved her cot into the nursery. I was so terribly sad at her leaving. It's my first taste of the dreaded "empty nest" feeling. My sister-in-law pointed out that it's only a matter of time when she will leave home :-(

And yet it's so liberating having our room back to ourselves again at night :-)

M had to work from home this weekend and so we stayed local - walking in the park, visiting friends, cooking, baking bread, gardening and generally chilling out with Little Planet.

Happy birthday, baby!

She is so amazingly cute...*hugs* to her from my side. Love the lovely dollop of hair she has (i don't if it can be called that way) :)

Congrats!

So she moved into her room without a fight? How did you manage that?
The Munchkin refuses to sleep in his crib! Do tell.

Hi Munch, She was in her own cot (in our room) for many months before we moved her cot into the nursery. We let her cry as she settled (controlled crying technique) and after a week her cries diminished from around 10-15 mins to virtually none. Not all parents either agree with or can cope with controlled crying, but it certainly worked for us.

You have a beautiful little girl there - and so much hair. None of my kids did - in fact, I think Bojjandi is going to be bald!

BTW, though our kids, except Bpjjandi. moved out of our bedroom quite a while back, my favourite night of the week is Sunday night, which is family sleep night. All of us huddle into our bedroom for the night!
