Do Your Kids Share Bedrooms?

bedroom for a young boy with blue walls, lots of posters

Right now, each set of boys shares a bedroom. This is rather an efficient arrangement, as we live in a 3-bedroom home. We have room to expand though, and could possibly add 2 more bedrooms in the next year or so. I want one room for visiting family. I could then….

    Wow, you guys have such a huge house.

    How about this, make another room so you’d have 4 bedrooms in all. Give 2 of it to each of the older twins, one for the younger twins, then one for you and hubby. That way, by the time the older twins move out, each of the younger twins will have their own room, you and hubby can keep yours, and have a spare bedroom.

    I don’t think I made any sense with that. Haha! 🙂

    Morris, I hope that goes well for you! Moving back can be…difficult.

    Louise, yes it is a big house. We’re very blessed. You did make sense, lol. I have room to do what you suggest, but then I wouldn’t have the bedroom ready if in-laws decided to stay for longer amounts of time. My father-in-law is 85 and we want to be available for them if needed. Sooooo, I guess we just keep pondering it. Right now there are only the 3 rooms available, so I can’t make a choice yet.
