Why I Don’t Have Bunk beds

My stepsons had bunk beds when I met them 18 years ago. The two older ones shared a room together for the first few months. Then we when we moved the younger ones shared the share a room and Jeff, the oldest, got his own room. The bunk beds worked for us well over the next ten years. But the boys got older and moved out. 🙂

We sold them and years later my son wanted bunk beds. I thought they would be great for friends coming over and what not. We got these really cool metal bunk beds that had one bed one way and the top bed the other. We had them for only about a year and a half.


Hunter never would sleep on the top bunk. I was a little worried he would fall out too. It always ended up have a TON of stuff on top. Just a big o’ junk pile.

Then Savannah, just a little thing, always wanted to climb the ladder and hang up on the top bunk. It.freaked.me.out!

My little tiny girl was constantly trying to get up there and I just couldn’t handle it anymore.

So we sold them to a neighbor boy who loves them!

I like some bunk beds, they have have so many cool ones now a days. Look at this one! But they are not for the worry mommy. Yes, that’s me.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!

  3. LOL! When we were shopping for beds for my two boys I wanted to go w/ a bunk bed because I thought it would save space but my husband was too freaked that our little guy who I think was a monkey in a previous life would think himself at a park all the time…We opted for two single beds and I’m usually glad for it!
