A few weeks ago Bob made the move to the Big Boy Bed. At bedtime, Jeff sits with him as Bob falls asleep so that they can enjoy quality father/son time and to ensure that our tiny, sleepy, angel does not escape the bed and run through the house pulling his clothes off while yelling, “Damn it! I am a naughty bunny! You are a pee-head! Damn! I am so crazy!” Not that this has ever happened more than 6 times.
During their heart to hearts, the guys cover the big issues.
