New Sleeping Arrangements

We finally got a new bed for Teen and set it up in what used to be Seth's room. So Teen now has his own room and Tween and Seth share the bunks in the other room.

Seth has not slept in his own bed but maybe a handful of times since we moved in here. We think he was actually afraid of his room. Shortly after we moved in here, he awoke to a buzzing sound. Turns out the people above us use that room for their treadmill.
However, Seth was convinced that it was more like a beehive in the wall.

So Wedensday night was the first night with the new sleeping arrangements.
TJ slept in his bed Boy In Bed
Josh slept in the top bunk in his room Pillow
Seth slept in the bottom bunk in his new bed Tired for about 10 minutes.

Then it was off to our bed again. Wake Up
I was so frustrated. No
I tried bribing him Lollipop 2
I tried begging him Please
I even tried crying Crying 1

All to no avail. I finally gave up. Surrender

Last night was night 2.

He started whining about going to bed. What Are You Whinging About
But Josh convinced him to go in and watch Charlie & the Chocolate Factory with him.
Belgium Chocolate The original one with Gene Wilder.

He fell asleep in his own new bed watching it! Woohoo

He did try to sneak in to our bed once, but Tom carried him back to his own bed. Usually at that point he just comes right back to our room, but he didn't.
Yeah Baby

No knees in my back. Knee
No elbows in my shoulder. Arm
No laying on the edge of the bed waiting to fall out.

Just Sweet Sleep. Dreaming

Hooray for you!
Boy, do I ever know how you feel - we've been co-sleeping for a long time. We've been trying to break the habit for a month or so and we are getting closer to making it stick. He spends most of the night in his own bed now and climbs in with us between 4 & 5 AM.

YEA!! Sleeping problems are just rampant anymore, I guess. I know soooo many people whose children sleep with them, due to fear, or whatever.. wonder why we all let our kids sleep with us?? It's hard to change it! I'm glad you got some good sleep! Good luck, Seth!

Woo hoo! I'm so glad that he slept in his own bed and prays he will do it again tonight!

It is nice to have your bed back, is it not?
