Toddler Fun: musical beds

Last night, I got extremely frustrated with T. because he wouldn't settle down to sleep even tho he had asked to go to bed. I have limited patience with him when he kicks me in the belly, in part because A. then proceeds to kick right back. I went downstairs, complained vehemently to R. about it, and R. went upstairs and lay down next to T. until one or perhaps both of them fell asleep.

As a result, T. was on the queen size mattress on the floor (predictably, sideways in the exact center of the bed). But hey, there's a perfectly good twin right there, so I went to sleep on that one.

2 a.m. came and 2 a.m. went. There was some movement on the other bed, but T. did not get out of it and did not climb in next to me until 7:45 a.m.

We may be on to something here. I can always have A. in the moses basket on the floor for the first few weeks if I don't want her next to me on the twin. If that prophet is compelled to unite with the mountain, go hang out on the foothill if you need to avoid him, right?
