Well, we did it.
After we "temporarily" decided to see how it went with two girls in one room, we purchased a bunk bed.
It arrived this past weekend and Ray, after getting home from work at 9:45 p.m. worked 'til 2 a.m. to put the darned thing together (I helped! ... some...). He's a trooper.
So here are some pictures of the girls' new transitions.
This is the cramped shared room from before...
It mostly worked, but it was super tight and full of toys, etc.Not mention that the furniture did not match. I couldn't stand it.
But the girls liked how close they were to each other.
This is how I found them one morning (see Millie's little legs?!):
So, enter the new bunk bed!
The kids are pretty happy too. The upstairs bunk is their new favorite play zone (Hi Pluto!).
We have had one (fairly major?) hiccup. Millie won't let Lola sleep on the top bunk. She cries and cries. In Millie's perfect world, they would both get to sleep on top. For now, she's settling for having Lola sleep beside her in the bottom bunk. Lola is willing to do it for now, but I know she's getting more and more annoyed with it. So at some point here, I'm going to have to just pull the bandage off.
But they go to sleep so well, so quietly...
It's actually peaceful at bedtime.
They're even teaching their "babies" to sleep together too...
