Well it was really more like a few hours. He really was excited at first. He did not want to get out once I put him in. He stayed in it, kissing the little dogs on the sheet & begging Lily to get him a new book every few minutes. but then he was done and when it was time for bed he had forgotten how much he loved it. Lucky for me I had already been through all this with Kail. So I pulled out my "super nanny" moves and made it work. Although some mornings he's back in my bed and I have no recollection on how he got there. I'm thinking telekinesis.
