My son sleeps in a box

We bought a new washer 3 days ago. Since then my son has been using the box it came in as a house. He's slept in it in the living room for the past 3 nights.

Have your children ever picked somewhere weird to sleep?

It's been great for us actually since we've been trying to kick him out of our bed.

  • 2 things.. a few years ago the brown box made the all time top 100 favorite toys list. When my son was6 we bought a new refrigerator. He decorated it and made it his 'fort' in his room. He slept in a sleeping bag in his 'fort' for most of 6 months. We finally convinced him to let us move it to the garage. For the next year we pulled that sucker in and out of the garage for him and his friends to play in. This same child is now 28. On his FB a pic of him, his brother and his best friend Nick in front of the fort :) It works.

LAst time we got a new dishwasher I asked the delivery guy for the box since he left it in the truck he thought i was strange and even stranger when I asked if he had anymore when i realizd he had left mine in the kids had a whole box town in our yard for a few weeks was a very peaceful few weeks let me tell ya!

  • No because if we allow them to sleep in odd spots then they never go to sleep. So its bed, and that is there only choice.

  • We buy diapers by the box, and we definitely keep them. Our DS loves to play with them. Why buy them a toy when a box can be whatever they want/need it to be.
