It can take time to get used to things.
My daughter switched to her big girl bed about four or five months ago. At first, it wasn't the prettiest nighttime situation in the world. There was whining, there was crying -- she missed the bars on her crib. But, with time, she got used to it. Now she loves the hell out of that big girl bed.
With no preseason this year, there was concern about rookies in fantasy football. And understandably so. This week, though, we saw some more first-year players really emerge.
Maybe they just needed a little bit of time to get used to their big girl bed.
