I always wanted my kids to have their own bedrooms, so they can have their own private space–their own safe haven to escape to when they need quiet time (I know, what’s that?). In our current home, we have enough rooms where each child would still be able to have their own room if we were to have another baby, but that would leave us without a playroom/guest room. So, we have a big decision to make. Right now, each girl has her own room, and then we have a nice, big playroom where all of their toys are kept. When we have another baby, we have two options: make the playroom into a bedroom and let Paislee and Keely SHARE a room, or put each child in their own room, the oldest having her room be the playroom.
Either way, we would have to make the playroom into a bedroom, but if the girls share a room, we will still have somewhere for guests to sleep when they visit and also a place to store a few extra toys so the rooms aren’t so cluttered. I am not sure how it would work with both girls sharing a room at their young ages ( 2 & 4), but I have a big feeling that bedtime would be CHAOS! Also, my oldest wants bunk beds, but I still feel like my youngest is too young and could get hurt on a bunk bed because she doesn’t understand how dangerous they are.
What would you do? Share rooms, or have separate spaces? Would you let them have bunk beds or stick to normal size beds?
