Out and In and Back Out again

Remember just last weekend when Sweet Pea rejected her toddler bed and we ended up putting the full crib back together again?  Remember when I called it a draw?  Well, score one for Sweet Pea because the count is now Sweet Pea 1, Mama and Papa 0. 

Yesterday all of the kids had a birthday party to attend that fell right in the middle of nap time.  It was the party of a really good friend so missing it was just not an option, sometimes naps just have to be skipped or manipulated.  We tried manipulated.  We put Sweet Pea in her crib an hour earlier than usual.  She had started to fall asleep in the car during errands so we felt like it just might work.  A few minutes later we find Sweet Pea walking down the hall.  Papa Bear and I both thought the other one had gotten her out of her crib for some reason until we put her back in and a few minutes later she reappeared in the hallway.  The third time, Papa Bear spied from a slightly cracked doorway and saw her ingenious way of climbing out of her crib.  Needless to say, she didn't nap.  We were hoping it was a one time thing and when we put her to bed for the night she stayed put.  That is, she stayed put until 6:45 this morning when she appeared next to my side of the bed yelling good morning.  So she wants her crib and to be able to get out of it too. 

Oh my darling girl, what are we going to do with you??  I don't know what our next move will be...keep the crib and hope she stops her midnight escapes, go ahead with the toddler bed even though it made her cry or just move to a regular bed because if we are going to have to go with a transition we might as well just get it all over and done with. 

I am going to try and get a video of her escape because Papa Bear says it is worth watching!
