UPDATE!

I TOOK THE VIDEO BELOW TONIGHT WHILE THE BOY'S WERE FINISHING UP THEIR BATHS. I WALKED OUT FOR JUST A MINUTE AND HEARD AUSTIN DYING LAUGHING AND PEEKED IN TO SEE WHAT THEY WERE UP TO AND THIS IS WHAT I SAW. I RAN TO GET THE VIDEO CAMERA BECAUSE I HAD TO SHOW THIS TO DADDY. I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE HE CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA, BUT THE BOY IS NOT SCARED OF WATER, THAT'S FOR SURE! AUSTIN WAS SO FUNNY CLAPPING FOR HIM EVERY TIME HE WOULD JUMP IN. ALL I KNOW IS THAT I'M IN FOR IT WITH THESE TWO! THEY ARE REALLY CLOSE THESE DAYS AND ARE ALWAYS UP TO SOMETHING. EXCUSE THE WHEE WHEE'S, BUT I HAD TO SHARE THIS! JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE HAS WILD CHILD'S LIKE MINE:)!

DADDY IS GOING TO GET TO SEE THE BOY'S IN FULL FORCE THIS WEEKEND WHILE MOMMY IS AT THE BEACH! MY MOTHER, HER BEST FRIEND(JAN) AND I ARE HEADED TO THE BEACH ON SATURDAY AND WILL BE BACK TUESDAY. DADDY WILL BE PLAYING MR. MOM WHILE WE ARE GONE AND I KNOW HE IS GOING TO LOVE IT! I TRIED TO BACK OUT, BECAUSE I'M SCARED I WILL GET HOME SICK, BUT THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN. I HAVE NEVER BEEN AWAY FROM ALL THREE OF THEM BEFORE, BUT DADDY SAID THAT I WAS GOING! I KNOW I WILL BE FINE AND ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF IT, ESPECIALLY SLEEPING:), AND I KNOW ALL THREE OF THEM WILL HAVE A BALL!

I AM GOING TO DO SOMETHING FUN WITH THE BOYS TOMORROW AND SPEND TIME WITH DADDY BEFORE I LEAVE, BUT I WILL TRY TO POST AGAIN BEFORE I GO. WE SHOULD BE GETTING OUR FAMILY PICTURES BACK THAT KIM TOOK FOR MY MOM TOMORROW AND I WILL TRY TO POST SOME, IF NOT I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND PRAY FOR ME WHILE I'M GONE.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I love being connected with other mom's of multiples. We all need to stick together and encourage one another! To answer your question...Bryce and Drew are 26 months old. They are still sleeping in their cribs. Their cribs are the kind that transition into toddler beds, but we have not done it yet. I have been advised by many moms to leave them in their cribs as long as possible. Drew has climbed out twice now, and thankfully, was not hurt, but after being disciplined for it, has not tried it since then. I have looked into buying "crib tents" - you can find them at www.babiesrus.com. They are kinda ugly but they have worked well for a few moms I know that have toddlers. Just another way to keep them in! I just don't think my boys are ready to sleep in toddler beds - I think we'll just end up chasing them all over their rooms trying to control them. But, when the time comes, I think we will break down their cribs into their toddler beds and have them sleep alone. My boys are used to that - they have been in their own cribs since they were just a few days old. Everyone is different though. My question for you - why do you think your boys are ready for a big boy bed? Have they been climbing out of their cribs? If you ever prefer to email me, feel free! karenarichardson@gmail.com

I have the crib tent for Warren. LOVE IT! I was afraid that he would climb out so we went ahead and bought one before he figured it out. I got mine from One Step Ahead. I transitioned Ben right at 2yo, but Warren I will wait a little bit. He would get up and run around. Ben was much better at understanding that he couldn't get out without Mommy right there. I have the convertible crib too. When we moved the crib to Warren's room we bought Ben a twin bed to sleep in. I read something that said to go ahead and buy a bigger bed because the kids will grow out of a twin bed before you are ready for them too. I know I will have tall kids and I wish now that I had gone ahead with a full bed for Ben. Warren's will make a full when we are ready.

Sorry for the unsolicited advice! Hope you don't mind.
