After having three children that had HORRIBLE going to bed habits, we finally had a child that we could give a bottle to, put him in bed (STILL AWAKE!) say goodnight, shut the door and be done. What a wonderful way of living!!! Well this child is 2 1/2 years old and is still in a crib... I know, some of you must be thinking "why do you have a two year old with a bottle AND still in a crib?" WEll I will tell you in word...WAY TOO CONVENIENT (ok, that was three words...deal with it!) After having three kids that had to be asleep before we put them in bed, or had to sleep IN our bed, I will gladly take a 2 1/2 year old that has to have a bottle to go to sleep.
Well yesterday our lives became a WHOLE LOT MORE difficult. We put Faisal down to bed and then setteled down with Chris to watch the much anticipated finale of The Biggest Loser (which by the way, the person that we wanted to win DID!). About an hour later, Faisal came running into the room! Chris and I looked at each other and I stupidly said to him "did you get him out of bed?" He looked at me like I was crazy and said "NO!"
A few weeks ago, Faisal had jostled his crib so much that some of the screws worked their way out and he was able to lower one side of the crib down and walk down it like a ramp...I know crazy! But I had fixed that problem, so I just figured that one of the girls got him out.
When Chris and I went to bed, Chris put him back in bed and we got into bed. Not more than 20 seconds later HE CAME RUNNING IN AGAIN! What the heck??!!!
In case you haven't guessed....YES, he has figured out how to climb out of his crib! What am I supposed to do now??? Suggestions please!!
The rest of the night consisted of him SCREAMING when I would put him back in bed until he would climb out and come running into our room. Are our days/nights of sweet slumber over???
