I never knew that bunk beds would change my life, but they have. Thank you, Santa. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Because of you, I now get to share my bed with my husband and only my husband. Because of you, I have had two nights of uninterrupted sleep. Because of you, I’m a nicer person every morning.
Pre-bunk bed, my bed was filled with a 3-year-old who was afraid to sleep alone and two beagles who like to sleep under the covers. My 15-month-old was constantly getting out of his crib, wanting to play in the middle of the night, so my husband would often find himself sleeping alone in the 3-year-old’s room because there just wasn’t enough room in our bed.
But now, thanks to Santa (a.k.a. Grandma and Grandpa), my oldest occupies the top bunk and the caboose sleeps on the bottom. One gets a roommate to help conquer the scary closet monsters and the other gets out of his crib and enjoys the freedom of a big boy bed. And the dogs? Well,they are snuggly in the new bed too. Which makes for a very happy Mommy and Daddy.
If your life sounds anything like my pre-bunk bed days, check out these well-designed, durable bunk beds. They’re so worth the investment–take it from a mom who’s running on two peaceful nights of sleep!
