Last night while cuddling next to my sleeping toddler, I questioned my whole thought on transitioning him to his own bed. I love these nights and waking up to him in the mornings.
However, that thought quickly vanished when, not even hours later, the little man was rolling all about my head. He wants to share my pillow — meaning I have about 4 inches of space for my head and the rest is for his head. I guess dangling my head from the bed seems like a good solution to him!
Through his morning wake-up ritual of rolling all over the bed, singing his “nay nay” and “da da da’s”, putting his finger up my nose and labeling “nose”, I tried to explain to him that we were going to get him his own big boy bed that he will be sleeping in on the floor of his own bedroom. I am quite certain he did not listen to a word I said.
Me being perpetually grumpy and him being perpetually whiny is a cycle that needs to end soon.
Let’s hope we survive til then!
