Well, it has something to do with the blue bed below....
All 3 of our older children slept in the crib till they were over 3.
Our neighbors, who are great, had this bed that their son was done with. They offered it to us. I, not being able to physically pass up anything free, of course, said yes.
When we did switch the kids into a bed after age 3, it was always into a twin bed and with a rail that usually made them hesitant to climb out.
This is a toddler bed.
We took it in the winter and it has been sitting on its side with clothes laying all over it in our room - I won't even tell you whose clothes they were- but they weren't my husbands- lol.
So, recently the husband said let's put the little guy (who is no where near 3) into his big boy bed. I ignored this and just put it off for a long time and then Sunday night, little guy asked his Daddy for it and at 9 at night when I was dying to relax, Daddy decided to take down our old crib that was a hand-me-down from a couple whose kids are almost as old as me and has been through my 4 kids and about 5 moves.
Little guy was so excited, I couldn't help but be excited for him.
The first night was fine and the rest have just gone progressively down hill.
As a matter of fact, he was just in here and I was threatening a spanking again. It is pretty late. And last night he was sleeping next to me.
If there is one thing you could learn about me, it would be that I do not like to share space with others. I love my kids and want to hug them, but I never appreciate an elbow in my face when I wake up.
Now, my dilemma. Do I put the crib back up (and it is old) or get through this? If I opt for the latter, how long do you think it will take?
I would love to blame this on the husband, but I didn't really protest and he was so cute in his bed-the first night.
I have to cut it short so I can get my kid to bed, now that it is 10:30 pm. So embarrassing- don't tell anyone, ok?
