Big Boy Transitions

I have been reading about all the transitions Lee will be going through the next few months, and I always read not to put him through more than one transition every three weeks or so. When he moved to the big boy bed a few weeks back, he was so excited, I honestly didn't think this one would count for us.

He had been climbing out of the baby bed, and seems happy to turn it over to KW. Check.
He never has once asked or tried to get back into the baby bed. Check.
Big smiles and immediately napping again once we had the bed set up. Check.

Then we started on the "bedtime rules". Don't unplug the light and monitor - finally have success! Don't touch the blinds - success achieved after seven broken blinds, but who's counting? And - stay in the bed! I know he still breaks this one sometimes, but I really don't care, as long as he brings whatever it is back to look at before falling asleep. And - for now - he amazingly stays in the bed until we come to get him.

This weekend, on to potty training. I was actually going to put it off for another couple of weeks, but he is becoming very insistent about using the potty and complaining, even when he is only wet. Strike while the iron is hot, right? But he also changes rooms at MDO next week. Two transitions at once, here we go!
