Our girls have their own rooms.
Well, they sort of have their own rooms.
I think our youngest has been sleeping in her big sister’s room since November. Bunk beds are fun and we have gone from bunking up on the weekends for fun to a full-time sleeping situation. They love it and back in November having them sleep in the same room put a stop to the little one coming into our room at night. What can I say, I like sleeping without a small child elbowing me and smacking me in the face while she sleeps. How do such small people take up SO much room?
They have recently been calling it “their” room and asking about turning the other bedroom into a playroom. I like them sleeping in the same room because there is something comforting about having them together. (Anyone else relate to that?) But I am sort of on the fence about an official move to a shared room because I don’t know what to do with the other bedroom!
They are only 8 and 5, so a playroom of sorts still makes sense. And, since we are a homeschool family, they do spend a lot of time playing together and having a space all their own would get a lot of use. But does it make sense to have a playroom up with all the bedrooms? This is an example of what I like to call first-world problems. 🙂
What would you do? Should I have “project playroom” in my future?
