Adding #3: Project Sleeping Arrangements

With just about 8 weeks to go before adding a third child to this bedroom (in theory anyway, if not in practice), we're working to make space.

I don't have a picture of our current set up (wouldn't that have called for forethought?!?) but right now Tornado is sleeping in this red toddler bed (which used to live on this wall and not in the middle of the unfinished bed frame) and Sweet Pea is still in the crib (because she doesn't climb out at every moment like Tornado did at a lot younger than she is now).

We were posed with a bit of a challenge when we learned baby number 3 was on the way... and no plans to move immediately into a larger home. That means 3 littles in one little room. Ok... so the room isn't tiny. It works. But the layout does pose us with a bit of a problem, so we're working with it. I'll try to give more details in a future post, but for now it's enough to say that Daddy is building a bunk bed! That's right... in his spare time. He got this much done Sunday afternoon/evening. It takes up a big chunk of the room, especially as it relates to the door, so we will be reorganizing and reevaluating the "stuff" that is in there currently.

The kids think it's great and Tornado is very excited that he gets to sleep on top and that Sweet Pea will sleep under him, and especially that he will get to use a ladder to get in and out of bed. I don't know if he really understands it all to the fullest, but I guess we'll find out.

We have all 3 of our littles in one room. It has worked well!! All sleep much better when they have each other nearby. We have 1 set of bunkbeds and the baby is in the crib. I guess it will get more interesting when/if we add #4 into the mix :-)

Since our newest is still so little and nursing, he sleeps in a pack n'play in our room. The plan however for when the three start sharing is for a bunkbed with a trundle. Right now the oldest two sleep in a twin and a toddler bed but 5 out of 7 nights a week they both end up in the same bed for whatever reason. I like that the trundle idea since it will also allow us to keep the toddler bed if we have to, and make the top bunk off limits until one or two of them are "old" enough that I feel safe having them up there.

My four year old really, really wants bunk beds. She keeps talking about them, how she will sleep on the top bunk and Rachel (or Daniel) can sleep on the bottom bunks...when they're older. Unfortunately (for her!), we have enough bedrooms that our children don't have to share yet. Poor thing! No bunk beds for her any time soon.
