When we told him we were getting him a new bed, he was SO excited. We asked what kind of sheets he wanted, and without hesitation announced that he was going to have a Thomas the Train bed. Alrighty then. Thomas the Train you shall have! It is so stinking cute!
He of course had to give it an immediate test drive.
In addition to his new bed, Josh also got a clock radio/CD player to put on his new nightstand. After his room was all set up, he spent almost an hour playing different CD's in his room. Our plan is to start training him to get himself up and ready in the morning. We are going to have him help us make a CD with all of his favorite songs, and set his alarm to start playing the CD when it's time to get up and get ready for school. We think he's going to do an awesome job with that, and it might even make the mornings a little easier. We'll see!
As I type the bed is on its maiden voyage to dreamland (it was no problem getting Josh to take a nap today!). This is just another sign that he's growing up before our very eyes!
