Ben dragged Daddy out of bed to play hide and seek. It was hilarious to walk in and find everyone under the bed snoozing. I am sure Andrew went back to sleep!
Ben has made the transition out of his cot and into a bed. We decided on a toddler bed for Ben (we got caught up on how cute they are …….. a single bed would have been fine). We thought we would get Ben involved in taking his cot down and putting up his bed which of course he loved. I am sure Andrew could have completed the task in half the time if Ben hadn’t kept stealing the tools.
Being a little bit of a worrier (ha ha hhhhhaaa), I was concerned about how Ben would go. You hear the horror stories of children jumping out of bed for hours! Well Ben loved it. He couldn’t go to sleep on it fast enough. For at least a week anyone who came to the house got pulled into the room by Ben to see the bed. He loved it!!!
I was so impressed with how easy it was for Ben to make the transition. I was so impressed that we had no jumping out of bed…….. well not at first. Once again I should have known not to be over confident. It took about a month but the games began. The games had to begin on the night Andrew’s parent came to stay. I was mortified. He jumped up for two hours. We tried everything! But eventually Ben was exhausted and fell asleep. It was ugly and ended in tears…. my tears. Thank goodness this game was short lived and passed quickly. Toddlers….. you have to love the unexpected!
On Wednesday Ben fell off the bed and broke his arm!!!!! He broke his left arm just under the shoulder so it is unable to be plastered. He was standing on the bed holding on to the bed end looking at himself in the mirror, chatting away. He stepped right off the side and hit the floor. He has a sling on his arm which is strapped to his body. He is recovering well. However I will take some time to recover!!! The staff at the Ipswich Hospital Emergency were absolutely fantastic. We didn’t have to wait more than five minutes for anything.
