Moving into a Big Boy Bed

If you haven't checked out Rocks in my Dryer yet, you are missing a fantastic site.  I just discovered it not long ago and I'm loving it.  There is some amazing tips and tricks.  Each week the author asks readers to post their best ideas to share with each other.  However, this week is different.  This is "Backwards Wednesday."  We have been challenged to post a problem that we are facing and ask for advice.  So here's my question:

I have a 2 1/2 year old boy that will need to move into a "big boy" bed soon.  I know that he's very young.  However, I also have a 2 1/2 month old daughter that will need his crib within a few months.  My son has never tried to climb out of his crib and he seems to be very attached to it.  How can I get him excited about moving into a bigger bed?

Make a game of getting into the big boy bed and show him you can get in and cuddle with him in the big boy bed, something you can't do in a crib. Even if you put him into a toddlers bed that you cannot climb into, you can still sit on the floor next to him and cuddle. I say start with one day a week as practice so he gets used to it slowly.
