Reading makes her sleepy

Avery has reached a dreaded two-year-old milestone: climbing out of her crib. We converted it into a toddler bed last week, but she still wouldn’t stay in her room. Clay never escaped at night, just at naptime. I held his door shut for a few minutes for three days and he decided to stay in his bed. Avery is a bit more stubborn, so I had to order a lock for her door from diapers.com. I like the lock because you don’t have to drill it into the door, and she can still peek out, so she doesn’t get scared. She cried the first night, but now has a new strategy. She turns the light back on, grabs a bunch of books and reads to her stuffed animals. As long as she’s in her bed and not crying, I’m happy. Fortunately it also makes her very, very sleepy…

Reading is hard work!
