We have been talking about moving Kobe to a big bed for a while, but have been putting it off as we were worried about how he was going to go and whether he would be a pain, and just get out all the time. We thought that this week may be a good week to do it, since we are on school holidays so two days ago Aaron put together Eden's old bed, that Kobe was lucky enough to inherit when they moved to the USA. It's perfect as it is actually the same bed that both Jay and Harri have.
As soon as Aaron put it together Kobe decided that the best thing to do on his new bed was of course jump on it!
He then collected all his toys from his shelves and baskets and put them up on the bed with him.
He was so funny and thought it was the best thing to have lots of his toys on the bed with him.
When I growled at him and told him it was bed time he burst into tears as I marched him back to bed. He was okay about going back to bed and ten minutes later he was sound asleep.
Instead he went quiet after ten minutes and had gone back to sleep! He then woke up at 6.30 am (a much more respectable time) and kept calling out to us. He didn't even attempt to get up and there was no way I was going to yell at him to get up, or he would think he could do it all the time, so I went in and told him what a good boy he was in his big bed and that he could get up.
Last night I went to check on the boys before we went to bed and I couldn't see Kobe anywhere in his bed! I started to freak out, until I saw his cute little legs poking out from under his bed! He was obviously in such a deep sleep and fell out, and just kept on sleeping (or had gotten out of bed to play and just feel asleep!).
This morning he did the same thing as the morning before - called out at 5.30 am, didn't get up but went back to sleep until 7.15 am! I then went into him and got into bed with him and told him what a good boy he is in his 'big boys bed'. He is very proud and loves that he is now in a big boys bed. Now, if only I could get him potty trained I would be a VERY happy Mummy!
