The day is nearing.
- I’ll get my extra bedroom back. We live in a modest, 1400 square foot, 3 bedroom home that was built in 1980-something. Space is PRECIOUS when there are two boys involved. I want my spare bedroom/crafting/blogging room back. Currently, my ‘office’ resides at our dining room table. I have all kinds of fun daydreams of making the Froggy’s room an extra lounging space. Maybe a pull out sofa, a TV, bean bags … that sort of thing. Basically, we’re going to stick everything that doesn’t have a spot, in that room. If we can just get my sewing machine off the top of my dryer, I’ll call it a win.
- Two little boys, in one little room. When I was growing up and moving around, whether or not my sister and I shared a room depended on where we lived and how many rooms it had. For the most part though, we always had our own rooms. I feel like with the boys so much closer together in age though – this needs to work. Soon enough they’ll be older and will want/need their own space … but right now they’re best friends. We should take advantage of that for as long as possible, right?
Oh I know there will be issues. There will be : He’s on my side of the room! He always gets to sleep on the top bunk! His toys are in my way! I figure this just helps to build character though. Kinda like how my parents made me make friends, and then leave them behind every few years when we moved? This is what I’m telling myself though. Character = good. Blogging/crafting/guest bedroom = gooder.
Will your kids share rooms eventually? Any tips from those who are already there?
