Once again, as we add to more children to our family, we are trying to figure out the bedroom situation.
Last time I asked you on my blog- you were right on! Most of you suggested having all 4 girls sleep in the same room. It has worked out perfectly!!
The girls have bonded together!
They are not afraid at night.
Their parents have slept wonderfully!!
Only twice have we had to put a kabosh on the late night conversations - other wise they talk for about 15 minutes and fall asleep!
Soooo, here is our idea- let me know what you think of it and feel free to give me any suggestions!!
We are thinking of ordering another set of bunk beds just like the ones we have and putting it in the girls bedroom. We would then have six children on one room. It is a big room about 15 by 13 (just a guess).
The third bunk would cover part of the window. It would go right where the large teddy bear and rocker
are. It is not ideal but I think it will work. The 3rd bunk would cover half the window. I usually don't put beds in front of windows but I have seen it done and I like it.
The 3 bunks would then be in a U shape. If Ellie wants to move up- we would then have the 3 youngest on the bottom bunks- Ava, Anna and Sam.
The corner bunks are really quite cozy- Anna loves hers! She is the bottom pink bunk.
I think we could still leave the comfy chair in there but the bookshelf, picture and lamp would have to go.
We do have another empty bedroom but it has been nice to have it available for guests. I can see Emma and Ellie welcoming Ava and Sam into the room but I feel like it is too soon to make them move to another room. They are doing so well I don't want to mess it up!
Since Sam is the only boy (so far) I want him to feel welcomed to the crew and not singled out to another room. Plus if he sleeps with the kids and not us- we will sleep better and be better parents! Once we have more boys they can have the other room- and it will be an all boy room, just for them!
Of course once he moves to the "soon to be" blue room there will be an extra bed in the girls room. I'm just sayin...
Uh, wonder what we should do with it??
So what do you think? Do you like that plan or not? What would you do??
We could do the 3 younger together and then the 3 older together but that would hopefully soon requires us to make another bedroom change when/ if more boys come our way?
I'm looking forward to your comments!!
Thank you so much!!
