sweet bee, i don't know if there's an ikea close to you, but we got this bed for my oldest 2 kids when we learned we were pregnant with number 3: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10123996/
they both started out on the bottom, and at ages 6 and 7, they usually sneak into the bottom bunk together every night, but they technically use both beds now. (we put a second mattress at the bottom of the frame- without a boxspring, there's room.) i like the bed because it has a small footprint, and the upper bunk is really short, such that i don't worry (anymore) about them jumping off of it- it's not very tall. (granted, they're 6 and 7...) in the long run, if you're aiming for your son to be up top, you could use the bottom space for storage/dressers, or a small table. it's not tall enough for a grownup to hang out underneath very comfortably, but it makes for a fantastic playspace -they're always hanging their comforters over the top bunk and playing "camping".

i have been following the convos here and wish to say more, but i've been out all day and i've got to get the kids to bed.

I have this same bed for my two oldest - the 7 year old is on top and the 4 year old on the bottom.  The top bunk is really very low, and we have the tent that goes over the top of it.  We have one of these as a stair case:

My 2 year old can climb up and down on that just fine, but I wouldn't want him to sleep up there at this age.
