So yesterday was just another day for everyone else in the world, but in our house, it was a day of great celebration because Luke and Evie got bunk beds. I wish I could have captured the excitement involved with this development. The kids were running, jumping, shouting, and acting crazy. It took an hour and a half or more to put the beds together, and the whole family helped. And I mean everyone!
After getting it all put together by 9:50 (at which point the kids were exhausted but hyped up), we put the kids to bed and collapsed, unable to fully restore the room to order. In fact, we still have to put together the trundle for George.
Anyhow, Luke climbed to the top bunk and slept perfectly. Unfortunately, George wanted to be on the top bunk also and Evie was terrified of sleeping in the lower bunk because she thinks the top bunk is going to fall on her.
So, George ended up on the bottom bunk and Evie slept on the floor. After all that work, it looks like Evie may be sleeping in the trundle out of pure terror and the boys will occupy the bunks. That will probably work out just fine since Evie is going to need to move to her own room at some point.
Heavens! I wish I could sleep this comfortably on the floor! Oh, to be young again.
