In order to avoid talking about the fiasco that tried to pass for The Bucs game yesterday, I am going to tell you about The Goon Squad’s newest milestone.
That’s right. They are loose.
We were braced for a couple of really difficult nights, but it actually hasn’t been too bad. The first night I caught them both sitting on the edge of Ian’s bed reading books to each other. How can I get mad at them for that? So far the twins have only tried to actually leave their room a couple of times and it was mostly to come tell us that they were going to bed and “See ya.”
I don’t know where they picked that up.
Oh, and I also used this opportunity to finally get rid of the bottles. (Yes, I know they are almost two and a half and I was supposed to wean them off of bottles when they were one, but you are talking to someone who took her blanky to college and on her honeymoon so I clearly have attachment issues.) When Gabe was putting the big kid beds together I had The Squad throw their bottles in the garbage can. That was two days ago. Ian asked me for one about 10 minutes ago, and he cried when I told him that we threw them away and asked if he wanted milk in a Sponge Bob cup with a straw, but overall they are handling it pretty well.
Claudia has only fallen out of bed once so far. Ian – three and a half times. (Once somehow his feet were on the floor and most of the rest of him was still in bed.) Here is the part I find interesting: when they fall out of bed they don’t wake up. Granted, these beds are only about a foot off of the ground, but I’m thinking that if I was sleeping and I fell that far it would rouse me.
Okay, that is about as good as I can do before 6:30 am. I leave you with a few links to pictures that are somehow related to this post.
