Sleep Training

A lot of you know that we've never owned an actual crib because we've moved so often and we've lived in such small places. We bought a Pac n Play when Luke grew out of his cradle and it's been used everyday since for nighttime sleeping as well as day time naps for 5 years. It has finally seen it's last day.
The other day I could hear the boys sort of jump-rolling from Luke's bed into the Pac n Play and then the sound of fabric ripping and then 'uh-oh.' They ripped through the side netting. That night I turned the Pac n Play around so that the ripped side was up against Luke's bed. The next day (after having had a serious talking to about not doing gymnastics into Caleb's bed) they ripped through the other side doing the same thing. Imagine my horrified disappointment. Caleb is to big for the Pac n Play anyway, I'm not going to buy another one, but he has to sleep somewhere these next 2 weeks, and I don't want him in my bed. With no other option I put Caleb in his bed and about an hour later found him like this.


He's managed to stay in his bed since that first night, thank goodness. I figure it's good training for when he finally has a big-boy bed of his own.

I love it - Caleb is so sweet! I can't wait for the day when we can buy furniture that's not temporary or easy to get rid of for the ever present "next move". Only 2 weeks? That's so exciting! It's getting warmer everyday (well mostly - we had a little snow today but not much). See ya soon!

Oh my goodness I love that picture! It is so funny! And so cute, how do they sleep through that? And I can't believe you only have 2 weeks left! No way! You should write a letter to the pack and play people about all of the good times your pack and play has seen you through... I bet they'd send you another one! :)

I can't believe he can sleep like that! Two weeks? Are you coming back here? Or there? Or where?

It's crazy to see what kids can sleep through. Doesn't he look so comfortable? Loved it.

That is so funny! And I agree with everyone else that it is pretty amazing what a child can sleep through! I'm sure you're getting excited for the upcoming move- good luck with all the packing and stuff!

Seriously, that is one of the funniest pictures ever! I love it. I even had Nate look it up so he could see it :)

That is really cute. I'm impressed he still sleeps in that thing. I looks like besides the driving you're having a good time in Mexico. We hope you keep safe and have fun.
