Well. This was quite the evening.
After we got the kids down for the night, Brian and I were in our room reading. I heard a noise at our door so I said, “Kalena?” since she gets out of bed approximately one million times before she actually goes to sleep. She didn’t respond so I figured she had gone back to her room, knowing she wasn’t supposed to be up. But then? Then we heard Will’s voice. Will, who sleeps in a crib. Will, who we had JUST put in a crib, not 15 minutes earlier. Brian got up to see what was going on and sure enough, there was Will running around upstairs. He was *quite* pleased with himself. We confirmed with my mom that she hadn’t gotten him out of the crib. WE HAVE A CLIMBER.
Kalena never once climbed out of her crib. She climbed INTO it on more than one occasion, but never out of it. I am so NOT ready to move Will to a toddler bed, but WHAT DO WE DOOOOO? For now we’ve moved his crib and we’re holding out hope that he won’t do it again. See, his crib was pushed up against a bed, so he climbed out onto the bed where he could get down easily. We moved it away from the bed, so I’m HOPING that he won’t climb out if he’d just have to fall all the way to the floor. Hopeful even that he used the bed as leverage and *can’t* get out of his crib without it to step up on.
Anyway, wish us luck! I’ll keep you updated for sure.
