Growing Up ~ Bunk Bed Buddies
Somehow, we’re not exactly sure on the details, Ahren and Ethan persuaded nannie to buy them bunk beds.
Which are being delivered this Friday!
Whilst I’m in awe of their persuasive skills, I’m having a bit of a tizz moment.
Not only is it another sign of my babies growing up, and besides the fact my kiddos don’t exactly sleep in the most traditional of positions, but in a set of bunk beds, there is a top bunk.
Almost near the ceiling.
Waaaayy up there, off the ground.
My kiddos don’t really have any concept of danger, everything is a challenge to be conquered.
So I’m a little worried as to the dare devil antics they will get up to.
Perhaps trying to fly, or jump from the bed to the toy box, maybe swing off a lamp shade or land on each other in the ultimate ninja move…the possibilities are endless.
But, hey ho, fingers crossed they won’t try anything too crazy!
We have another teeny tiny problem; bedside storage.
Both Ahren and Ethan like to keep Lego, books, teddies and a drink close to hand whilst in bed, a stash of contraband chocolate coins is also appreciated, but with bunk beds there isn’t really anywhere for their usual array of items to go!
I’ve been looking in to various solutions, some more appealing than others and a few just screaming for a child to climb on a dive off again.
These are my top picks.
After much umming and aahhing I think the side shelf option is the most practical, but that comes with bunk beds!! Gah! So now the hunt is on for bunk bed side shelf WITHOUT the bunk bed!
Whilst I’m a little apprehensive over the boys having a bunk bed, I’m really looking forward to making the lower bunk a hideaway tent for
Do your little ones sleep in bunk beds?
How do you stop them falling out or from using it as a Jungle Gym?!
