Koby's Big-Boy Bed

Okay, so the big-boy bed, is really just moving his bed to our room. Mason and I agreed that it was time to let Koby sleep in the room with us instead of all alone in the kitchen. Our main concern was that he would wake up in the middle of the night and either find a nice black shoe to chew on or terrorize Sheeba.

Sleep being so precious to us, me especially, we waited until the weekend to allow him in. Saturday night, we brought him in, and he was pretty sure this was play time, even though Charlie was already curled up on my side of the bed and Sheeba was trying to hobble towards her bed. Koby's only thoughts were; "Sheeba! Let's play! Here, I'll chew on your back and you pretend you don't like it." and "Oh, Mommy wants to play too! You can't catch me!" Finally Mason caught him and we plopped him in the bed with us until we were ready to turn out the lights where he drifted off snuggled under the covers. Moments after the darkness hit and Koby did 4 circles in his own bed before plopping down, he jumped up and started barking as if there were an intruder. Wow, this is going to suck. After we finally calmed him down, he fell asleep and didn't make a peep.

Overall, he did good. So we let him sleep with us again last night. Once again, we had to let him fall asleep under the covers, snuggled in the crook of my arm. I placed him in his bed while our bed side lights were still on, and learned what exactly made him concerned about our safety the night before. On the other side of the room, there was a strange dog looking back at him, which was terrifying. He ran towards the dog barking his little head off while Sheeba and Charlie just looked at him like he was crazy. He stopped short of the wall in case that other dog was going to jump out at him. And then, the scariest thing ever happened, he made eye contact with me in the mirror. Not only is there a strange dog in this rectangle, but there is someone who looks just like his human! Freaky. He jumped back about a foot and barked harder. Finally I snatched him up and took him and his racing heart to the mirror, so he could hopefully see there was nothing to be worried about. The other dog and human weren't able to get through. I feel I should mention that this is not the first time Koby has looked in the mirror, I have showed it to him many times before. But this is the first time he has been scared of it, in fact this is the first time that he gave it more then a sniff.

Koby Juan Kanobi, aside from the scary creatures in the mirror, you did okay on your first two nights in your big-boy bed.
