In August and September, Sam's bedroom got a major overhaul. He wanted a new bed, and it was a good time for that since he'd been in the same bed since around the age of 3, and he was about to turn 11, so his new bed would be the bed he'd have through high school and beyond. He found a bunk bed that he really liked on Wayfair and it had great reviews so that's what we got. But before I get to that (in a future blog post), his room needed to be cleaned out to make way for the new bed, which was huge!
This loft tent bed was a good bed, and so fun for a kid. The slide brought a bit of the playground inside, and the under-bed fort area was fun and it was great for toy storage too. It used to have cloth panels that went up around it so that it really was a fort under there. Fast-forward about eight years and the panels hadn't been up in many years, the ladder rungs had broken off, the bed was pretty scratched up, and there's a long row of snake stickers going up the slide. It's been a well-used, well-loved bed (by a well-loved little boy!)
Tomorrow's post will be about Sam's temporary sleeping quarters while his new bed was "under construction."
