Abby never tried to get out of her crib and we ended up transitioning her when she started potty training. Well, in true Sammy fashion, he was just the opposite. The day I returned from a trip to Wisconsin (12/21), he revolted on us. He absolutely wanted to sleep with us and decided to catapult himself out of his crib and onto a few of his Tonka trucks. I wish I could say it was funny, but at 2am it was downright scary. Troublemaker. So we hustled to get him a toddler bed. He doesn't have a whole lot of room for a full size (he has a convertible crib) and we don't have twin/full size mattress yet. In hindsight, we could have just thrown his crib mattress on the floor. I ended up driving down to Wells to borrow a friend's toddler bed, to get home and find out that his crib did in fact have the piece to cover to a toddler bed. Oiy vey.
After a solid week and half, he is finally sleeping well. And then he got the stomach bug. I will say the silver lining is that changing sheets is easier in a toddler bed rather than his crib.
So, Sam the Man is styling in his new toddler bed. And, the Tonka trunks are just fine - he bounced right off of them.
