Wombmates to Cribmates to Roommates to Bunkmates

First they were wombmates,

Then they changed to cribmates,

Who transitioned to roommates,

That last night turned into bunkmates.

All together in the same room. A room FULL of boys and memories in the making!

Happy 5th Birthday, Boys! Enjoy bunking together, and remember these bunk beds, sheets, mattresses, and mattress covers cost more than your Daddy’s first car! 😉

    I love this! My two eldest children are bunk mates right now and I love having them in a room together – you’re right there are definitely memories in the making!

    That’s definitely a room full of boys! How do you work closet space?!?

    And do they each have a certain bed or is there a rotation?

      We’re still figuring out our new clothing/closet situation. They already shared one closet, so that still works, but the dressers would no longer fit in the room of beds, so we have to figure out a new system.

    I am SOOOOOO happy that they are all back together, and I’m sure you are too! Oh, the fun! I almost want to come watch them overnight just so I can experience the new mayhem of bedtime fun 😉

    I’ll bet they will just love this setup! Bunkbeds are so handy. P.S. I’m the writer who asked you about the Clubhouse, Jr. article — was something you were still interested in doing? It’s fine if not, I was just hoping to find out for sure. 🙂

      Crystal, I am so terribly sorry! I have your email in my inbox starred and it has disappeared. My ugly inbox must have ate it. Would you mind re-sending? Thank you so much for pursuing us and being an encouragement in our lives!

    How fun! We got our twins bunk beds for their 5th birthday this year, too. Right now, our boy/girl twins still share a room and their younger brother has his own room. At this point, that arrangement still works well for everyone involved!

    Soon though, we’ll be putting our youngest in toddler bed, then a big boy bed…then once we trust he can stay in his own bed, in his own room, we’ll work on letting him share a room with his brother which will then allow our daughter to have her own room.

    Some people are surprised that we still have our b/g twins share a room but they are so close and love it and I’m going to cherish that as long as I can!

    So much fun! Ours have gone from crib mates to room mates (sharing cribs to having their own cribs) all in the same room. It is nice to see how you have transitioned and what we have to look forward to.

    I knew a lady with 5 boys who all slept in 1 room and all the dressers were in a seperate room 😉 She was my old neighbor. I’d probably do the same. I have 2 boys 4yrs. apart in age currently sleeping in a bunk… 10 and 6. Wondering how long until the 10yr. old is too big for a bunk?!? But there’s no room otherwise!! Baby girl has the 3rd (smallest) bedroom to herself and all the boys’ stuff is crammed into 1 small room! With stuff in the garage too as we have no room for a playroom : /

    Too funny. The time really does go by so quickly. You won’t know what to do with yourself once they head off to Kindergarten! Enjoy and happy birthday to all the boys!

    I misread the title and thought it said, “wombats”, not “wombmates”. Well, no matter how you spell it, they are so precious!

    I see your boys and question, “does my daughter really look that old?!!!” They are growing up to fast. My daughter turned five on Christmas Eve.

    This is precious – I love seeing the wombmates/cribmates they look so peaceful sleeping. Hopefully sleep will again be that peaceful once the excitement of having all FOUR boys in the same room 🙂

    PS – Love the bunks, did you have these custom made?
