Well, he took his nap in his bed, by his choice, this afternoon. He slept for 1 1/2 hours - he never sleeps that long unless I lay down with him, which is fine because then I get to rest also.
He's really too young to 'reason' with. I just welcome him in to bed w/me if he wants to come. I don't want to make it a battle of the wills!
Anyway, noordinaryspider, he will probably go into the queen size bed with my 15yo son when we move him out of our room. Until then, if he can adjust, he'll just be in the toddler bed next to us. My 15yo had to 'help' transition my third child when he was five and my older son was 10. Bless his heart, my dd gets out of all the hard work since she's the only girl.
And zona... We had to use MAJOR bribery for my third child, he was four to five (it took forever) and I cannot imagine how much we spent on action figures!
