Duncan Slept in His Big Boy Bed!
Hammering a Screw
Last night at bedtime, Justin decided to put Duncan's big boy bed together in the new and improved Big Boy Room.
He positioned the Thomas canopy/tent/thingy over the bed and, of course, Duncan was thrilled. Too bad Justin didn't have this idea a little earlier. Duncan wanted to stay in his Big Boy Room and couldn't be persuaded to go back to his Little Boy Room. So, we thought, "Why not?" We cleaned up the tools and put the boy to bed. He fussed a bit (not unusual.) After a brief period with us, he went back to his new room. And slept. He woke again briefly in the night. Kind of one of those, "Where am I? Oh yeah!" And then slept till morning. The whole putting the bed together and Duncan willingly sleeping in his Big Boy Room happened so quickly, it kind of caught me unawares. I wasn't quite ready. And I was, admittedly, a bit sad. I'm glad that, so far, it's going well. He's in there tonight. In the bed. Sleeping. It's all good. Now we just have to clear out the little boy stuff from the Little Boy Room, and move in the little girl stuff. And we can move Panda Bear into her own room. I think that'll make me sad, too. Growing up is hard. Especially on the parents!
