Well, it had to happen one day. More than a month past 3 years old, my son greeted me after his afternoon nap by throwing his leg over the side of his crib and hanging there like a monkey — a very PROUD monkey! This effectively ended his crib days.
Over 3 and still in a crib, you might ask?! Well, why not? He loved his crib, had never shown any interest in climbing out, slept GREAT, and so I always knew where he was. Very convenient. But obviously it was time to grow up, so he’s my BIG boy’s toddler bed (aka, converted crib).
FYI: to my complete shock, he just LOVES his toddler bed. Never had a moment’s hesitation about climbing right in, and still doesn’t climb out at night or after naps! I am SOOO lucky. Plus, it’s so much easier to lean over and give him a big hug goodnight….
