A Toddler BUNK??? I Need a Vote!
So Alex and I have not been able to agree on a particular decision. So you all know that baby three is on its way. I am almost half way along. I have recently put my girls in the same room, which has definitely had its kinks, but is going fairly ok. This all with the intent to put the crying infant in its own room. Since our rooms are small, and I like to keep the toys in with the kids, toddler beds have seemed to be the practical decision. Dejah has been sleeping in one since she was Mycah's age (2) and is now going on 5. Mycah is still in her crib. This is something we plan to change soon so that she will be all adjusted to a "big girl bed" by the time the baby comes. My choice would be to put a regular size bunk bed in the girls' room. Reason....Dejah is getting bigger, and "eventually" they will need to upgrade.Alex on the other hand thinks it would be more practical to just purchase another toddler bed, therefore saving much needed space in the girls' room.We CANNOT agree, and its driving me NUTS! I see his point. The twin size bunk will take up almost 1/2 the bedroom, but the two toddler beds will still take up 1/2 of each wall. So here we are and a decision needs to be made fairly soon. I decided to google "toddler bunk beds" and wouldn't you know it....they only sell this one in the UK. They don't even ship them to the states. My Dad is very crafty and has all the materials to make one of these. He said it would probably only take him an hour to cut the pieces if I had all the measurements. So the question is...Would a toddler "BUNK" be the best option in our situation??? I would make a few changes to this model, like take away the rope thingy and place the ladder at the "feet end" and probably put a guard rail on the bottom as well. Besides all that, what do you all think??? I'm taking any opinion or option.
