  • I see no issues with the girls sharing a room. It makes it even easier since the boy is the oldest. It's good for now and you can consider something else in a few years. My DH spent the first 7 years of his life with both of his brothers all in one room, then in the dinning room with a curtain when they moved. It might be tight but all they have to do is sleep and dress their. Utilize space with a dresser in the closet and all hanging clothes in the boys room. This will give a little more floor space for the girls so you have room for storage bins or toy boxes. A curtain across the bottom bunk gives the oldest privacy.

  • We have 5 kids: 3 girls and 2 boys.  We live in a 3 bedroom 2 bath house.  The 3 girls (10, 8 and 4) share one room and our older son (9) has his own room.  When the baby (4 months) gets bigger he'll share with his big brother.  Right now the girls have "junior beds" from IKEA.  They are bigger than a toddler bed but smaller than a twin.  Actually only 2 of the girls have beds right now.  The 4yo sleeps on the floor (her choice because one of the beds belongs to her but she let the 8yo sleep in it).  We'll be getting twin bunk beds for the older girls soon and then the 4yo will have her bed back.  The beds take up most of their room.

  • Wow. You need to chill out on here with the language and everything.. That's not cool..

    I personally think you need at least a 4 bedroom home. 3 children in one bedroom is too many in my opinion.
