We took delivery of Tom's new bed last weekend. It lay in pieces on the landing all week - plenty long enough for Tom to identify that it bore more than a passing resemblance to a racing car and that it needed making and soon.
The morning and evening discussions this week have all featured Tom's express wish that 'Daddy make the racing car soon'. By Thursday Tom had added the impatient exhortation 'Come on daddy!'
I screwed it all together on Friday and the duvet cover that arrived midweek provided the finishing touch. The video below shows Tom's reaction to the discovery of the bed.

We didn't hear from him at all this morning - about 9am we decided that we ought to see if he had any intention of getting up. To say he was happy to go to bed this evening is taking understatements about as far as they dare go.
A successful transition to a bed? I think so.
