About a month ago, we moved the kids into the same room. With the baby's arrival this April, I wanted to get them bunking together sooner rather than later in hopes that we could have it all figured out (meaning little people sleeping soundly in their beds all night, every night) by the time baby girl got here. While I know that sounds ridiculous, I guess I wanted to know what we were in for pre-April.
We decided it was best to give Nora and George the master bedroom. I mean, what did we use the space for? Nothing, is the correct answer.
We had a loose idea that an adventure theme would be a fun way to incorporate both of their seemingly gender-specific things. I had plans of buying matching dressers, new bedding, a new rug etc. But in the end we just moved them into the room and--turns out, the room worked with what we had (give or take a few new prints). I have found over the years, that you really need to get into the space before you can make any assessments of what you need.
Good thing Santa was good to us this year and brought the teepee! I like the way it really ties together the entire room.
As for the room sharing, the kids are great at going to bed, sleeping soundly throughout the night, but the mornings have been rough. I'm talking 4:45am, 5:15am, wake up times...but I digress. I love the idea of room sharing, I just hope it can involve more sleep. Fingers crossed, people, fingers crossed. April is right around the corner.
