Big Boy Bed

Mason is growing up so fast! It is hard to believe that he is almost 2 years old. It seems like it was only a short time ago that we brought a tiny baby home from the hospital and had no clue what to do with him. Hopefully we are a little more prepared to bring the next one home in about 12 weeks. We decided to transition Mason into a toddler bed a few months before the baby comes that way he won't feel like we are kicking him out of the crib to give it to the baby and besides I can't lift him into the crib anymore. I'm try to avoid the sibling animosity as best I can. So we got Mason a "big boy bed" and he loves it. We had been talking with him about a big boy bed for a few weeks so he was pretty excited when we brought it home and daddy put it together. As soon as we put the mattress in the bed he jumped on up and set down. He would sleep great for naps and at night. He wouldn't even get out of bed until someone came and got him. That only lasted a weeks until he discovered that it was possible to get out of bed on his own. Then instead of sleeping he would play or get into his closet and putt all of his dirty clothes out of the laundry basket and pull all of his shirts off the hangers! We are still working on staying in bed at nap times.

Mason also decided that since he is a big boy he can brush his teeth all by himself. He likes to get his stool and brush - and by brush I mean suck the toothpast off the toothbrush and then chew on the toothbrush.
