Big Boy Bed

A few weekends ago, while changing the sheets, I decided to take the front rail off of Buddy's bed, so that he'd have a 'big boy bed.'

Here he is, demonstrating how he's going to sleep:

And, actually sleeping:

He fell out once the first night. I didn't hear the 'thud,' but heard him crying. When I got to his room, there was a little bundle of blankets on the floor, squirming around. He only fell out one other time since then.
When he was sick last weekend, he never left the bed, just sat on the edge and called for us until we went to see what was up.
And then a few mornings ago, I woke up to hear him whining "bummmmmm....... bummmmmmm" and thought 'what the heck?" When I got in there, again, he was sitting on the edge, and soaked.
The night before however, his Daddy found him reading a story in the hallway at three in the morning.... so the times he does need us, he doesn't leave the bed, but when he doesn't need us, he gets out!!

  1. That must have been weird to find him at 3 in the morning reading!

  2. Parenthood is such a push-pull...and kids seem to be VERY aware of that fact!

    At least he was reading a book in the middle of the night instead of making messes. That's my fear with moving my toddler into a big girl bed. She's a mess maker when we're all awake. Imagine the havoc if Mom and Dad were snoring in the next room!! :)

  3. He is such a cutie : ) Demonstrating how he will sleep in his bed!
