This weekend, we made a big change in our household.  We put Biggest and Littlest in the same room.  With bunk beds.  Now, it is not that we don’t have enough bedrooms for them to have their own rooms.  We absolutely do.  We just thought it would be good for them to share their room for a while, because both Hubby and I had to do it when we were younger.  My sister and I shared a room for a few years.  We are both still alive.  We still talk to each other. 

Of course, in our heads it will be like a scene from “White Christmas”, with Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen, dancing around and singing happily. The will grow up closer and stronger because of it.  They will do everything together, being best friends forever.  That is how it works, right? 

Ok.  I know.  This is not reality.  In reality, it will look something more like this:

Or worse:

So until we know the impact of the move to one room, we won’t bother to move any other major furniture, like dressers, from room to room.  Our plans for the current empty room can wait until we know for certain its fate.  Of course, our plans for that room include turning into the new playroom.  After all, it does have a door we can close….but whatever.


  1. I'm going to cross my fingers they stay at least somewhere between White Christmas and Roseanne. ;)
    I'm sure they'll be fine. I shared a room with my big sister for a brief time, and fortunately we both made it out in one piece.

  2. I was wondering if this move maybe would lead to an annoucement of sorts?

    We have two girls in one room in bunk beds. It works. There are times it doesn't however I think the times it doesn't work it wouldn't matter if they were in the room, same house, or same town. It wouldn't work.

    But for the most part - 90% - it works very well. Good luck!!!

    1. Uh, no announcements, otherwise the makers of Mirena are ready to receive a disgruntled call from me. ;)

  3. My sister and I shared a room for 17 years, and we are still BFFs. It can be done...just prepare for the day when one girl comes home and is surprised to find their shared room painted the color of the inside of the sun.
