Spoiled co-sleeper

Let me tell you something about my spoiled kid. His little fanny has not slept an entire night in his own bed since I accidentally fell asleep while nursing him in bed at 8 months old. He went on a crib strike. Being the exhausted push over that I am, he secured his place in mommy and daddy's bed forever.

Well, last night was the first night that he slept in his own bed until 7 am. HOLY CRAP!!!! This is a big deal over at our house.

So, we threw him a "You did it!" party after dinner. Anything to encourage our little co-sleeper to stay put in his own bed.

There were cupcakes
and streamers
and party hats
and a home made crown
for the man of the hour.
We sang the song
"For He's a Jolly Good Fellow"
We gave him Hot Wheels
as a gift
and told him how grown up he was.

Koen even joined in the celebration.

Griffin beamed with pride and ate 3 cupcakes.
It was a big party!

Cool blog. I'm just impressed someone at your house managed to sleep in until 7AM (let's have them talk to our rooster risers).

Good for him and GREAT for you!! Isn't it the best when you wake up and there aren't any kids in it?? Of course, now he will be up all night from the sugar shock of those three cupcakes!! LOL

I was at the party or should I say Par-Tay! Griffin was so proud as were we all. Just don't ask about what happened the next night!
