Bed Switching

I am the worst mother in the universe. Why? Because my 6.5 and 4.5 year olds are still in toddler beds. Well, they were. S started complaining that her head AND her feet were touching the ends of her bed (whoops). I had been putting it off because I am still madly in love with Z's race car bed, but I finally admitted it was time.

Many moons ago, we bought a set of bunk beds for K & M. They were sometimes used together, sometimes apart. We recently decided to bring the beds together again, and have S & Z sleep in them instead.

S & Z's "new" bunk bed.

K's daybed

So, we bought a beautiful daybed for K off of KSL. I am really quite tickled with it.

M's new loft bed
Next, we built M a loft bed. Space is so tight in his room that we felt this would be a good use of space. J and his dad designed and built the bed. I did a good bit of the finish work.

Everyone seems to be pretty thrilled with the new sleeping arrangements except for S, who initially said it was ok to let Z have top bunk for the month of January, but found the actual practice to be quite contrary to her wishes.

I think you are an awesome mom to have built a bed for M. I haven't attempted anything like that.
