Am I being TOO selfish?

so, we have a 4 br home...all 4 rooms are tiny tho =[
we have 2 sons, ages 4 & 1, they currently have their own rooms & a playroom.
I LOVE their playroom...it keeps their rooms from getting messed up as much & plus they dont really have room for their toys to fit in their tiny rooms (have room to play anyway) they mainly just sleep in their rooms...

I'm seriously considering moving the boys into one bedroom & taking one of their rooms to be MY craft room. I'm just sick of having nowhere to put my stuff & not really having a good place to work on things either!

Am I being too selfish? should I just suck it up? lol

 Well,I am taking over our dining room.We always eat int he breakfast area unless we have company over.No parties or gatherings are planned until April, so its mine. I haven't even asked I'm just doing it. I doubt anyone even notices except the dogs anyways, lol. They are th only ones that even go in there.

Thats kinda how I was thinking too...They are both very young, its not like they need privacy lol However i kinda feel bad bc they will be very cramped....The baby is no where near ready to be out of his crib...I guess I should have mentioned that he Just turned 1 on Dec 6th lol 

but I'll prolly leave the baby's dresser in his old room & only move his crib & rocking chair out?? idk I'm so indesisive LOL   I havent been doing alot of crafting lately, but its sooooooo hard to when I cant get it out lol  I want to work on some paintings & things for them & I want to start a new quilt. & I plan on buying a cricut in the next few weeks, so I really want the space haha

We took over our kids' playroom and made it into a library/craft room. Our boys (6 & 3) share a room and our girl (6) has her own room. I wish we could give all our kids their own rooms, but we can't. They don't seem to mind at all, yet, though. :)

Are they small? If so I don't see how it would hurt a thing!

I want to have a 3rd baby (I'm fighting the baby fever pretty hard right now lol) but Idk where we'd put it lol now if we had a girl that would be easy...she would obviously be the one who got her own room....but if we had a 3rd boy idk what i'd do lol I'd prolly wind up giving up the playroom bc I would feel like I was picking favorites... =/

Lol dont blame u, somstimes we just need space. Is the closet big enough to squeeze a dresser in? You cld always put baby in s port a crib in the boys room, and break it down for the daytime or while its not being used. Pinterest had a cute idea for turning a portacrib to a toddler bed by cutting one the side screen parts off and putting a sheet over the top. U cld also hang a few wall shelf cubbings too.
