Ok, so that title was a spoiler. 

K (and 3 cousins) recently visited with his grandparents over Thanksgiving.  With 4 kids under 5, they had to get creative with sleeping arrangements…and K was the one who ended up in a toddler bed.  I was skeptical.  I thought for sure he would wake up and wander. 

Good news – I was wrong!   He woke up one morning and got out of bed  before the rest of us.  Otherwise, he did surprisingly well. 

We decided to capitalize on the momentum and try converting his bed when we got home. We realized we didn’t have the toddler half rail…but decided to give it a whirl anyway.   Daddy converted the bed, and K got to climb in and give it a whirl.

He liked it!


During a late Walmart run, I bought a bed rail just in case…but by the time I got home, K was already in bed.  And he stayed there all night!  To be determined if it will always go this well…but for night one, we are super proud of our big boy!
