Bedtime Stories

This is quite the story to tell. Over the last couple of nights Jackson has been throwing huge fits when it is time for bed. He tells me that he wants to sleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed. I have let him fall asleep in our bed a couple of times while Steve has been away but move him back to his room when I am ready to go to bed. That kid kicks!!! You see the problem is not just him asking to sleep there it is the screaming at me, stomping his feet, refusing to even walk into his room fit that he throws when I even mention bedtime. I decided I could not keep letting him do this because we are going to start a bad habit. So a couple of nights ago I put him in his room and closed the gate. Now to those of you lock your child in his room? Yes because our bedrooms are on the third floor so we have to keep him safe.

After closing the gate he was standing there crying like he was never going to see me again. I walk back down stairs. About 15 minutes late I can his footsteps crossing across the floor. When I go back up stairs this is what I find....

I am going to enter the child in the strongest baby contest because he was able to bust down the gate. And the footsteps that I heard were him carrying his blanket, pillow, and ALL his bedtime pals from his bed to mine.

I have to give it to him. He was determined to get out of that room and found a way out. I guess we can't say that he doesn't have problem solving skills.

Oh my goodness! What a little stinker! BTW, I don't think there is anything wrong with a baby gate at the door. We put one up for Abby when she first started sleeping in her big girl bed :)
