Sunday the big boy bed was delivered and I made it up with his brand new Lightning McQueen sheets that Grandpa Ron sent him last Christmas and some new fluffy pillows. All comfy and cozy. I put a little step stool for him to climb up on, a night light next to his bed, and a lamp on his little drawer thing next to his bed so we can read when he goes night night. He LOVES it....He loves the fact that Mommy can actually lay on his bed and read to him now without the mattress falling through like it did in his Race Car Bed....and now for the very BEST part. He slept last night in his OWN bed from 9:15pm to 4:45am at which time he woke up for like two minutes asking for a drink. I told him I would be right back and when I got back - he was back asleep and slept until I had to PRY him out of bed at 6:45am. I HOPE THIS LASTS. He said he LOVES his new bed and that it is so comfy. He is so funny - I woke up and took him in to go potty and when he was done he said "I want to go sleep" and went back in his room and crawled back in bed. YAYYYYYYYYY I don't want to get my hopes up - but I am praying this will be just the thing to get my Son on the road to GREAT sleeping habits. I got such wonderful sleep myself, that I am MORE tired this morning than I usually am. I am SO PROUD of my big boy and I hope and pray he keeps this up.
This morning he was in a pleasant mood and ready to go to school. He told me all about how he was NOT going to cry today, he was going to be a GOOD boy and listen to his teacher. We had a very nice morning. I told him how proud I am of him for sleeping in his big boy bed, and how happy that makes me and that my heart was singing....he likes it when my heart sings...lol - I took him to school and Miss Michelle was not around, so we had a hard morning. He did not want to let me leave. Miss Vanessa had to step in and take over the situation. He was really looking forward to seeing Michelle and telling her all about his new bed. He has really grown attached to her. I don't know what the poor guy will do when she goes on Maternity leave.
Friday when I picked him up from school I found out all kinds of lovely things the little rat fink had been up to. Pushing kids, pulling girls hair, spilling the kids milk, breaking the crayons in half, coloring all over the table, pooping in his pants, I don't even want to know what else. He promised to be a good boy today - I hope so. Scott and I both had a serious talk with him about his behavior and explained that we do not hit other kids, and we NEVER put our hands on a girl. Maybe the bad sleeping habits affect his behavior. I don't know.
I am praying for a good day for my Bug.
