Dang it....I was hoping that this would last a little longer or maybe today was just a fluke. We put Ethan in a big boy bed almost 6 months ago and he has done awesome. He goes to be with hardly any trouble at all, has only gotten out of the bed twice right after I put him in it and calls for me each morning on the monitor but has never gotten himself out of bed in the morning....today was a different story.

Last night Jeff was doing some work at home so I stayed up with him late and we caught up on some DVR at the same time. I went to bed about 12:30 and he finished up his work about 2:30 am. I wake up this morning about 6:30 to hear Ethan saying "Mama, Mama" as usual and I also hear Jeff saying "come in here Ethan, it's okay". Am I dreaming?!?...I am totally confused....I get out of bed trying to figure out why Jeff is talking to Ethan from the shower to find Ethan standing in the dark hallway still saying "Mama, Mama." Apparently he was awake enough to get out of his bed, open his door and walk up the 14 stairs in the dark.

I am crossing my fingers that it is just a fluke and tomorrow morning I will hear him talking to me on his monitor from his bed as I am not excited about having him wander the house at random hours while Jeff and I are sleeping and can't hear anything from downstairs unless it is on the monitor.

YIKES! may be time to 'lock' him in his room at night. i saw this little clip that goes above the top of the door and 'locks' them in so they cant wander. not the best thing to do to a kid, but at least he would only be in his room...

My worst nightmare is waking up and having Peyton standing next to the bed. Just a creepy way to wake up. Luckily he doesn't get up yet, but I'm sure that day will come.
