Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.


Big Girl Rooms

With plans to add another member to our family in the possibly near future, our thoughts have recently been drifting to big girl rooms. 

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?
