Luke's Bedtime Antics

I can't believe I almost forgot to post this!

Ever since Luke has been moved from the crib to his big boy bed, things have been a little crazy! It certainly hasn't been the easiest transition for him. (Or the me and Jon!) He doesn't really like to go to bed or stay in his bed. Our evenings are usually pretty loud and stressful. Luke has been getting up in the middle of the night just beside himself and screams and cries like crazy!

Well, a few nights ago Luke continued the tradition of getting up a few times in the middle of the night. We got up and put him back in bed each time in hopes that he would stay in bed and go back to sleep until it is actually time to get up. Jon and I fell back to sleep and all of a sudden heard a crash! We both sat up and had to quickly get our bearings (since it was almost 4:30a.m.). We both noticed that the living room light was on. Jon went out there and found this:
Well, sort of this. The only thing missing in the picture is Luke. Yep, he, very quietly, snuck out of his room. Turned on the light. And proceeded to play with his cars!
What in the world is the child thinking?! Is he not tired?! His sleeping habits have completely changed since he has been in the big boy bed. He used to sleep until 8a.m. or as late at9:30-10:00a.m.!!! I would think that he would be completely exhausted! Not to mention all of the crying during the night and day!

I know that this may be (slightly) comical, but I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with the whole thing right now! I know it isn't going to last forever and I will, someday, look back and laugh. Maybe, since I am not a patient person, the Lord is trying to teach me patience through this little guy!
So...this is what we are trying now. We'll see how this works out.

I know it's not funny to you, but I'm on the outside looking in and it's pretty darn cute to me! I wouldn't have EVEN thought so if it were the other way around though!! You don't mess with this momma and her sleep! Just ask Chris and my kids. :O) Hang in there friend...he'll get it!
