But, we're smart. We knew to tie in Thomas the Tank Engine as some sort of guarantee for success. And it worked! We're on Day/Night 4 and he's totally transitioned and loving the big boy bed.
If you ask him about the whole big boy bed thing, he'd say, "I was so surprised!" And asking if it is easy or hard to sleep in a big boy bed still gets the "Hard" response. He's terribly proud of himself. And, as his ever adoring parents, we're even prouder. Way to go, Big Boy!
The cow also made the move.
Even MiMi helped do a practice tuck-in.
Side note: I heard him cry out around 11 pm last night. Thankfully, when I went to check on him, I watched where I was walking and did not assume that the blob on the floor was a blanket. He somehow rolled off the bed though was still half-asleep. I gently put him back in bed and there he stayed all night.
