Big Boy Beds day 2

This is CAKE. I was all stressed, hearing about how the kids will abandon naps for weeks when we switch beds. Besides having a few visitors in our bed last night (at least they came in quietly, lol) they slept well all the way until 8 this morning. At 8ish, I went in and greeted them thinking maybe if I go in before they want to come out, they will stay in their beds until we come to get them. Seems to be working so far.

Today at nap time Jaxon was having a hoot kicking the closet doors from his bed, so he ended up in the crib in the guest room. Obviously, he was ticked, but I think having him and Wyatt getting a feel for the consequence of not following the "rules" have helped and hopefully will keep them in their new beds for good.

Jaxon is not feeling so great today though. A bit of coughing, ear tugging and a bit of a fever early in the day. Don bought some ear drops after we were wondering if he had water in his ears from the swim lessons. Hopefully with a bit of Motrin and ear drops he will feel better and be able to enjoy the weekend ahead.

On unrelated news....
I got my camera back today! Fed Ex dropped it off this morning and I am thrilled to have it home again. It is obviously in working order and can't wait to play with it more this weekend.

I can't believe your boys are in 'big boy' beds already!. Isn't it amazing how fast they grow up?

I don't recall having that hard of a time transitioning my boys. I did have to stay in the room with them until they fell asleep (or right outside the door where they could see me) until they fell asleep. That got them in the habit of 'no playing at bedtime or naptime'. After that it was no probem. My boys actually slept better in beds. They were too long for their cribs and looked really uncomfortable.

Have fun with your camera!!!

Transitioning to those "big kid" beds is hard. I still have one to go but I know he won't stay in there for nothing. Your boys are super cute!
I am glad you are going along with my scrapbook challenge -- my sister thinks I'm nuts trying to do that but I need to do -- I need some creative me time!
