Before we get to the big news I want to thank you all for your special comments about my Great Aunt Rhoda's doll Dinah. She really is a treasure to me and I appreciate you all understanding how very special she is.
Okay on to the Big Boy news. This past weekend Little Buddy and I had a big chat. We talked about being done with his crib, which he really loves, and moving to a big boy bed. This boy of mine while five is very tiny. He has been very safe in his crib but it was time to move him on. If I am expecting him to act like a big boy I need to start treating him like one. I decided that what works for me is not fostering independence in him. I know nice therapist Mom I am doing some things to help him move along in his development but holding him back in other areas. I need to help him in all areas!
Do you want to peek?
We have had this bed almost as long as we have had Little Buddy. We had some special money of his to spend before he was adopted or the state would get the money after he was ours. This was one of many things we ordered for him with those funds.
Little Buddy helped me put it together by pretending to use the tools and basically getting in my way. I asked him to hand me the screwdriver and he said, "Mom, I would be delighted!" He makes me laugh. He is able to get in and out of the bed all by himself. He can use his canes or crutches to walk right up to it and sit down. He loves it! And like a very good boy he does not get out of it during nap time or bedtime. I am so proud of him, this is a big step. Now about that potty training.........
