We have been living with my in laws. Our 4 kids have been sharing a room, and the baby has been sleeping with us in the living room. We have been holding out hoping that something would go up for rent with 4 bedrooms, this has not happened yet, and I'm tiered of waiting, so we are looking at a place with 2 bedrooms and a loft. We figure just getting our own place on a month to month lease while we keep looking for a larger place is a better option then living with the in laws. Well, Dh and I would take the loft. I was talking about having our only daughter 4 (khaela) have a room of her own, and the three boys share a room, and the baby sleep in our room. Our daughter does not like this idea, she wants to be with her brothers (mostly her 5 yr old brother Gabe), but, our 7 yr old doesn't want to be without Gabe either, and our 3 yr old doesn't want to be without the 7 yr old. Right now they are very happy sharing a room altogether, but in the new place I don't think we could fit all the beds in one room, and we do have one set of bunk beds, and the 7 yr old sleeps on the top bunk, but I don't feel comfortable with doing 2 sets of bunk beds as I don't' think the 5 yr old is ready for a top bunk (he only half wakes up when he gets up to pee at night). I love that they all want to be together, and don't want to discourage that, but don't know how to situate things in a way that will work.
Should I just divide them up 2 and 2, should I force my daughter to have her own room when she doesn't want one, or should I do what I can to make them all fit into one room?
