The bed



I finally caved and bought the hellion a big boy bed. I have been putting it off for forever because he never climbed out of the crib and I didn't want to deal with keeping him in the twin bed. I was soooooooo right to dread it. I picked him up from his dads tonight and we got home late. So we played with Nini (my sister) for a bit then it was bed time. The child was not at all tired and I wanted to pass out already. We read two books and than the fight began. 3 cups of water, five moves from bed to floor back to bed, numerous tears (mostly mine) and the boy is finally asleep. Please pray for the rest of the week.

Like I said earlier, it's all about savoring these moments for when they have kids.

Oh, and you totally have my prayers, dood. And voodoo dolls. And shrunken heads.

Just keep consistent and he'll be fine before you know it. Good luck!

There will be times when it will be easy.

Keep consistent and after awhile one drink only and then you stop speaking to him. Just keep putting him back in the bed.

I pray for your patience with all this. I know it is hard. I Know.
