I've been meaning to post about this subject for some time now.. because I feel like us parents with little ones are always helping our children transition into a new phase/stage in their life..

No one looks forward to transitions.. at least not the transition PROCESS. Whether it's dropping a nap, getting rid of the pacifier, potty training, changing from crib to bed, etc.. the process will not be pleasing to either the child or parent. At least temporarily. You just have to keep your eye on the prize (no more changing dirty diapers, no more cleaning pacifiers, or child climbing and falling out of crib, etc) and get through perhaps a week of cranky kids and maybe sleepless nights for you.. But after a week or so, you will wake up and realize that your children have succeeded.. that is, until their next transition. :)
