He's learning...

Remember this post from a couple of days ago? That was where I admitted that my almost-three-year-old is still sleeping in his crib. Here's a little update on that...

So yesterday I put Jackson down for a nap. He screamed for about 10 minutes and then was quiet. "Ahhh," I thought to myself. "He finally fell asleep."

Two minutes later I'm working in the kitchen and I hear, "Mommy! I wake up!" And he's standing right behind me grinning a proud grin. (His expression was so funny I laughed outright.) Yeah right, he did NOT take a nap!

It dawned on me that the day before I had asked Lizzie to help him out of his crib. She decided to push the step stool next to the crib and I never moved it.

I said, "Jackson! How did you get out of your crib?!"

He says, "Step!"

Oh great. He's finally learned that he can escape. Now begins the bedtime battle.

I'm just impressed that you got him to stay in his crib that long!

I think you have now joined the rest of us in the world of door knobs with locks. On the outside.

Nooo! It's the worst when that happens, sorry. It's so funny you just did that post about him not getting out yet and then he figures it out somehow. It's like kids can read our minds or something. Intuitive little people!!
