n my mind the captains bed seems like a good option as it has three high sides and with a safety net/bar thing, it would almost be like a crib (insert evil laugh here).
So that time is almost upon me. Honestly the thought of it leaves me cowering in the corner wondering if I will ever make it through. You see, with another baby entering our home in just a few months, we are contemplating a big boy bed for JJ. I am torn between going all out and splurging on a cute captains bed with storage, a bunk bed, a toddler bed, or a just plain mattress on the floor (refugee style).
However, with another boy on the way I would love them to share a room once my new baby is big enough, so I wonder if we should just get the bunks now...
On the other hand, a toddler bed seems like a great transition for a young two year old who has never even tried to climb out of his crib. Also a cute car one might get him excited about the prospect of giving up his crib. Yet, is it a waste as he will surely shortly grow out of it and I will face this same dilemma?
My last option seems to be a mattress on the floor, which I have heard has worked for some parents. I think the aesthetic of this is what is bothering me. Would it feel like a perpetual camp out?
What have you enlightened, hip, and cutting edge mothers done when this time came?
