Mark This Day In History -

Mark this day in history … P climbed out of his crib for the first time. Now, I know that this is actually pretty good! Most kids climb out much earlier and I am totally aware of that. Due to part laziness and part selfishness on our part, we haven’t transitioned P over to a big boy bed yet. We kind of liked having him “contained.” Anyway, those days are now over.

To preface, I try to take my shower before P wakes up and then I go and get him out of bed. So, I was in the bathroom this morning blow drying my hair and I heard a door slam. It scared the heck out of me because J was at work and, as far as I knew, P was in his bed. Anyway, it turns out P had climbed out of bed and was on the hunt for his momma. I came running out of the bathroom thinking there was a burglar or something and found P running to me. It was quite a shock and surprise!

Anyway, that is the story. I ask you to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we transition him into his big boy bed. If you have any advice or anything, we would appreciate it! I am not looking forward to him getting out of bed 900 times each night. So, again, let me know if you have any advice.

That is too funny. That would have scared me too. Hopefully he will do good. I was really worried my 2 year old would give us a hard time and get out of bed alot, but he just never did. so hopefully thats how preston will be.

Super Nanny has great advice for situations like that. It just takes time for them to get use to the new idea of a big boy bed. Good luck.
