Boy oh boy! What a weekend...well we thought we were really going to have it in for ourselves.
The side rails were purchased weeks ago and I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to move Kings from his crib, that he has so lovingly become accustomed to for the past 2 years, into his big boy bed. Now this isn't just any bed, its a QUEEN SIZE, and I assumed would be a little intimidating to my little Tooks! Well, its our guest bed and since I am indecisive, I haven't quite figured out what bed I want for his room permanently, so this will have to suffice for the time being. I'll get it together eventually.
So nap time comes around and we walk Kings into the room and put him in the bed. Well he's a little confused, so I quickly run and grab his sound machine, blankets and stuffed animals to emulate his crib. He clutches his blanket, looks at us, we kiss him goodnight as we do everynight, turn away and close the door. Can you believe that he doesn't even make a sound??? About 15 minutes later, I am still in awe, so I creep into the room and he is sprawled out horizontally on the bed as if he has always slept there. Thank you Lord! This nap lasted 2 whole hours!!!!
But the real test would come in the evening. So here it was and what kept playing in my head was my mother telling me that I would wake up in the middle of the night with Kings staring at me from the side of my bed because he had gotten out of his. So I was prepared to greet my little man in the middle of the night, but IT NEVER HAPPENED! He had slept through the night, from 8pm to 7am and when he did awake, he just called my name.....there was no little pitter patter of feet coming into our bedroom. Yay! I silently prayed again a prayer of thanks and gratitude. We had conquered the big boy bed and Kings did it was such ease!
