Shortly after finding out we would be adding to our family, we put a twin bed in Peachy's room. We just told her that it was her big girl bed and left it at that. For a long time we simply used at as a vertical surface to store miscellany. After I finished the quilt, I made an effort to keep it made up nicely and to discontinue using it as a clutter keeper. We started reading books to on her big girl bed before putting her into her crib for naps and bed time. Around this time I also explained that it would be her bed and when the baby came the baby would use the crib. She started to refer to it as her "girl bed."
