We did not have a lot growing up. We always had enough, don't get me wrong, and I think it taught me to respect what we had, but we didn't have a lot of extras.
I had 7 brothers and 2 sisters. We had a 4 bedroom house and we girls shared one, the adults had one, and the boys shared the other two.
Sure we had times where we felt cramped, but my parents made what we had work and I would say we were FAR from abused. Now it seems like if you had 3 or 4 kids in a room, you would be looking at a CPS case!
I just wonder how large families do it now. We are expecting our 3rd daughter next month, and we have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house...we have one room, our two daughters share another, and the third room is a toy room. I would like to keep the toy room and have the three girls together when the baby is old enough to join them (we co-sleep for about the first year).
btw...it may not even make it to that point, because we are doing some serious house hunting right now.

For a long time all of our kids shared the same room. They are 5, 4, and 1. My 5 year old is the boy, other 2 are girls. With my oldest starting school this year and them just all around taking better care of their things we decided to give the girls a room and the boys a room. Another boy is due anytime, that's why I said "the boys". They have a bunk bed set a piece, one of the ones that goes into 2 seperate twin beds. So that's how I have their rooms set up. They are exactly the same. They each have one table with storage set underneath it. Storage in the closet. 2 rugs, a table and chairs set, and a toy box. Girls room done in butterflies, boys room done in sports. I must be on a caffeine kick, that was a lot of info, lol.

As for my own, I only had one sister, ten years older. We had bunk beds and shared a room. We had one dresser and the closet. I know, I know, I haven't even really been able to answer your question, blame the caffeine, lol.

I don't think it's wrong. We aren't planning on having any more but decided if by chance it DOES happen, we are switching the beds to bunkbeds and then buying another set of bunkbeds for whichever room the new baby would go in. :)
