My cherubs really are growing up. We packed away the crib and toddler bed, and got the girls their very own "grown-up" bed.

Needless to say, the girls are ecstatic. Cakes has fallen off the ladder four times, Bean has hit her head on the ceiling twice, and Cakes has hit her head on the underside of the top bunk once. But, this has not dampened their enthusiasm. Every bedtime is full of exclamations of:

"I just love my new big girl bed!"

"This bed is so cozy!"

"I love having a big girl bed of my very own!"

And, while I still have to wrestle Cakes into bed every night, Bean has gone willingly and excitedly. She often starts asking if she can go to bed about two hours before bedtime. We'll see how long this lasts.

That is so exciting! And what a pretty little girly room. :)

Oh i love it. We want bunk beds so bad, but just haven't thrown down the money for them. What grown up little ladies you have!

I love bunk beds. But for some reason lately both my kids share the bottom bed...for some reason they are afraid of the top bunk?!! I'm thinking I'd rather be on the top, then worrrying about someone falling on me from above;)

It's so pink and purple. Ellie would LOVE it!! She's actually been begging for bunks, but ... well, in our little Cape, all the ceilings are low or angled, so it's really not an option for us. Glad it's going well for you and the girls!!

I recently came across a couple of colorful designs on more bunk beds and kids bedroom furniture.
