We kept putting it off and putting it off...for no good reason really, the boys were getting in and out of their cribs as if they were beds, and we finally just put the sides down to make it a little less "hazardous..." I think we were just avoiding it because it was easier. Well, last week, we decided to "take the plunge" and get the "real" beds.
The boys were super excited when we told them they were getting big boy beds, but I think they were mostly just excited about jumping on the mattresses.
For the most part, it's as if nothing changed. I guess, since they've been escaping from their cribs for ages, they didn't have the 'new found freedom' problem. And, since they've been known to nap in a twin bed or even our almost queen bed, it wasn't as if they felt 'lost' in their new beds...nope, just regular nights same as before.
Connor did fall out last night, but only because he fell asleep at the foot of his bed (near the door) and not on his pillow, but we just picked him up and put him back in bed and he barely made a sound. Alex was the one who woke up because of it and caused more of a fuss...go figure.
They still aren't napping these days, but that was a problem before the bed switch. We've just been letting them have "quiet" time (which is anything but quiet or relaxing), then they are a bit cranky the remainder of the day, and then they go to bed at 7:00 instead of 8:00. Good thing it's still relatively dark at 7:00, I'm not sure how this will all work once we change the clocks next month...Oh well, one day at a time. Enjoy the video...
