We have a big blended family - I call us the modern day Brady Bunch. I have 3 kids that are with us 24/7 and my fiance has 3 that we have 3 days a week. The ages are DS 7 years, SS 5 years, DD 3 years, SD 3 years, DD 21 months, and SS 8 months. Right now we are in a 3 BR home, my fiance and I share a room and the 8 month old sleeps in our room when he is here. The 3 girls share a room and the 2 older boys share a room. We are moving soon, hopefully to a bigger house, and my idea is to have the two oldest boys share a room, the two 3 year old girls share a room and the two youngest share a room. I figure they are still babies and it doesn't it hurt to have a boy and girl together so young. We don't have a house yet, so we might even have more rooms, but do you think that this is expectable grouping? I don't want it to seem like I'm giving my kids their own rooms, just for the step siblings to invade the space on the weekends. They do all get along really well, so I'm not concerned with fighting or anything. My son does occasionally need his space- due to his ADHD and sensory processing disorder he gets overwhelmed sometimes and just has to have a cool down time. I want it to be as fair as possible for each of them with space provided.Answer Question
