Trifecta (dictionary's definition) - a bet in which the person betting forecasts the first three finishers in a race in the correct order.
Trifecta (my definition) - a bed in which the parent buying hopes the hyper three children will fall asleep in any order.
Our older daughter used to sleep in her own room. One year ago exactly, when I was away for a couple of days, she decided to move into her sisters' room. No problem! Why? Because her bed is a futon. When she outgrew her toddler bed, we never got around to purchasing a bed. She was quite content with a futon. It's easy to make your bed when you have a futon - just roll it up. No fear of hearing a loud *thump* in the night because she rolled off the bed. The song "No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" is a moot point.
But every once in a while she would ask for a real bed. Not complaining, just kind of wanting one. However, there was no way we could replace the futon with a twin bed and keep them in the same room.
What's a mom of three to do?
Never fear, Berg Furniture is here! They recently came out with a really nice triple bunk bed. We have a solution! (An added bonus - the middle bed can be turned into a stand-alone twin bed.) In the Bay Area, Berg Furniture is only sold at Kiddie World (search for Trifecta bed). My oldest daughter's interpretation of "Kiddie World" is to put a kitten in a basket with some play items. Ba dum bum! Tonight's the first night with the new triple bunk. It's taken toooooo long for them to settle down and snuggle up with their new sheets, comforters, and plenty of leg room.
Good night, sleep tight, don't wake us up in the middle of the night...or at dawn's first light!

This is NOT a sponsored post but mom Daphne hopes that Kiddie World will give her commission on any new business generated by this post! But she warns that making these three beds is quite a workout!
