I should have been chronicling this better but we are in this new phase where the kids only want to sleep with us. For a long time one or both would get up in the middle of the night and make noise until we would pick them up and take them back to our room. Then it shifted to them starting out in our bed in the first place.
Sometimes I would take one into the spare bedroom so that we weren't
squished because even a King sized bed is too small when your toddlers sleep perpendicular
to the bed.
Of course this means none of us get a good night’s sleep so the kiddos don’t
want to get up in the morning. Which makes
it harder to get ready in the morning.
Assuming they are not being mommy-centric and will let me dress them, we
still are pushing getting out the door in a timely fashion
I bought a bunk bed off Wayfair thinking that would solve the problem.
It sort of did for a short time. Now I get to sleep in the bottom
bunk (a full size thankfully) with one or both of them until they fall asleep
and I can sneak back into our bed.
The next step is to get rid of our old bed. We don't get many guests
these days and if needed, we do have a blowup mattress. Once the bed is
gone, we can reconvert the nursery back into an office. I'm thinking we
can ship the old bed to my in-laws once they get their new house and they can
either hold onto it until we move down or keep it.
