Another Loft Bed

It needs some kind of support, which could be a post, a triangle back to the wall below, or a cable to the rafter above. I talked with Anna about what she wanted, and she likes the idea of a post.
There are a lot of ways you could connect the post to the beams and the beams to each other, but here's what I'm thinking:
This is cutting away 2/3 of the top of the post, so both beams can rest on the post. To improve the connection between the beams, I'm thinking of notching the edges of one to create a tongue that will fit into a notch in the middle of the other. I don't know much about joinery, though, so it's possible I'm planning something that either doesn't work very well or is too hard to construct? This will be the first part I do, before cutting things to length, so that if I screw up I have enough left to try again.
