Internet, give me your thoughts.
Recently we’ve been discussing furniture and looking at beds for Hudson. We don’t plan to move Hudson out of his crib for another year or so but I just want to keep my eyes open and get a feel for what type of furniture I want in his room.
Right now here are the rooms we have and what beds we have:
Our room: Queen bed
Guest room: Full bed
Porter’s room: Twin bunks
Hudson’s room: crib
Porter has pretty much moved into the guest room. Err “gas” room he calls it. For some reason he prefers to sleep in there and its less of a struggle to keep him in bed if we just let him sleep in there. At first I refused, but then my grandma said “Don’t make it an issue… let him sleep in there and he’ll grow out of that phase.” So that’s what we’ve done. But now he’s like, only wanting to sleep in the guest room.
We had a talk tonight about the beds and I asked if he just didn’t like the bunk over his head. That would be easy enough to solve as we could give Hudson one bed and Porter the other (although, for possible houseguest purposes, we wanted to keep bunks in one room). We took the top bunk off and Porter still wanted to sleep in the guest room.
I asked him if we should move the bunks into the guest room and the guest bed into his room and if we did, what room would he want to sleep in? “My room but in the guest bed.”
Ok, I don’t blame him. The guest bed is SUPER comfy. As in, I would choose the guest bed mattress over our queen mattress hands down. It is like heaven.
So, I’m wondering…. should we buy a twin mattress that is super comfy like the guest bed mattress and put that on the bottom bunk for Porter and hope that makes him want to sleep in the bunks again?
We only have one mattress for the bunk right now…. the top bunk just has an air mattress… so really, this is a completely logical option.
Should we save the bunks for Hudson’s room and let Porter have the full sized bed for his room and buy a new bed for the guest room?
I really hate to use the bunks in any room other than Porter’s since I bought two twin quilts for Porter’s room. And I already have the fabric to make a twin sized quilt for Hudson’s room. If we give Porter the full sized bed I’d have to buy him a new quilt, buy more fabric to make a second quilt for Hudson’s room and I’d have two twin quilts extra from Porter’s current bed situation (bunks).
Or, should we just MAKE Porter sleep in his room and refuse to let him sleep in the guest room?
What would you do?
