I think one of my biggest failures as a mother of boys is that my boys don’t have bunk beds. I love them. I couldn’t wait for my kids to get them, however since my boys were so close in age, they each had to move to a ‘big boy’ bed at 18 months so I could use the crib for the next baby. Obviously I couldn’t put an 18 month old in a bunk bed, so I bought very cute captains beds.
As they years went by and I kept looking for bunk beds, one of two things would happen. A) I wouldn’t have the money to replace perfectly good beds or B) I would have the money, find the perfect bed, and Number Three would have some crazy accident, be covered in blood and I would decide no way I could give that child anything else to fall off of.
Now, the little ones are 8 & 9. Have I missed the window? Do I want to buy bunk beds for kids who will be teenagers in 4 years? They want them terribly. You know how much we travel. When we rent houses, the boys almost always have a bunk room. I have decided that other than catching frogs, farting and rolling in mud, there is nothing boys like better than playing on bunk beds. My boys can stay in the room for hours just climbing, laying and talking to each other in bunk beds. Something about having a sibling under or on top of them, makes them want to whisper and share secrets. It’s awesome.
I think I’m going to have to do it. Maybe I can find some that can convert to lofts in a few years. I’m on the hunt for some kick-ass and comfortable bunk beds.
What about you? Do your kids have bunk beds? WILL your kids have bunk beds? I cannot be alone in my obsession of ladders and “sleeping on top” can I?
