We have been lowering Boone's side of the crib at night to start the transition in a big boy bed. He has escaped a few times but is sensitive to discipline and hasn't tried getting out in two nights now. He said he is ready for his big boy bed. :) We aren't in any big hurry now since he broke the crib last week. Seriously pulled a whole slat off. If anyone hears of a good white crib for sale, let me know!
