When my second son was born, I somehow became enamoured with the idea of the boys sharing a room when they got older. They seemed to love each other’s company and constantly climbed into each other’s bed and cot.
Since the house we were in had very small bedrooms (gotta love modern design – NOT!) and both boys were climbing into and over every single set of bunk beds we ever came across in furniture stores, the decision seemed easy. Bunk beds it was!
And then it struck me. And continued to strike me every few weeks. Mostly on my head, but sometimes on my knees and ankles.
The number ONE reason that bunk beds are a bad idea – YOU are the one who has to make the beds and change the sheets!
Reasons 2 to 5 – see reason 1.
Unless you really enjoy climbing, are a masochist and/or a contortionist – DO NOT get bunk beds!
Bunk beds have been separated into two single beds.
Boys have been separated into their own bedrooms.
