We took down the queen size bed in Princess' room and put up her twin size sleigh bed. This necessitated cleaning out the bins under her bed and donating toys to charity. It's bittersweet that she has decided to pass on her Polly Pockets, Build-A-Bear and Barbies. No one is rushing her to grow up, for goodness sakes, but she's ready all the same.

I am glad to hear that she wants to donate all of her stuffed animals to the Department of Public Safety so the Troopers can have sweet, stuffed friends to hand out to children in trauma. Have you ever been a part of a wreck with a child? The Trooper or Deputy or Officer has a stash of toys in the trunk for the child to hug during the trauma. We couldn't think of a better use for her beloved stuffed animals.
