Some rather large boxes arrived at the front door. I was on my way down to visit my mother, so called Dave and said, "Um, hon ... any chance you could put together a bunk bed okay thanks BYE!"
"What? What bunk bed?"
THIS bunk bed.
Charlene Bunk Bed in Chestnut
Dave is a builder, so he knows his quality of wood. I asked him for his thoughts.
"Well sure, Eden. I was pleasantly surprised on how easy it was to put together. I like how it's an Aussie company .. and the bunk really is solid timber. The stained colour gives Max's room character and warmth. It's just not flimsy like other bunks."
Max may hate Mondays, but he loves his new bunks. "Now I can have more sleepovers mum!"
The days after the bunk assembly, strict rules were needed. Chiefly, no jumping off the top bunk onto the floor below .. over and over again.
9pm on the exciting first night of the bunk bed looked a little like this:
Truth is, there was one main reason I got this bed - if I moved Rocco over into Max's bedroom, he might stop coming into our bed and waking us up.
And he has. Just like that, Bunks and Beds has given me a consistently decent nights sleep for the first time in FOUR YEARS. The first morning, I got up to find both the boys still sleeping. Hi-fived Dave, snuck into Max's room, expecting to see both boys sleeping soundly in their Chestnut Charlene.
Instead I found this guy. Patiently waiting at his brothers feet. Swinging a plastic axe.
