When most kids are transitioned into a big kid bed their parents have the fun job of getting them to stay in their beds. Not us. Nope, we are working on getting Collin to get OUT of his bed!! He won't get out of his bed when he wakes up in the morning or after nap time. And he doesn't even call us anymore- he just lays in there and coughs!! I don't know why coughing came to mean Mommy will come in and tell me to come out, but it's been working for him. We tell him every time he goes to bed that when he wakes up he should come out. But every time around his wake up time we hear the coughing and eventually we'll go in and tell him he can get up. He's such a kooky boy!!
