If you have EOWE skids, where do they sleep??
We are currently trying to redo our floors in our house and we have a new baby on the way. SD was sharing a room with my youngest. With approximately 4 mos before baby we decided to get a nursery ready. We agreed my two kids can share a room and bought them bunk beds. I assumed dh realized this was so the baby could have its own room (so it isn't waking the kids up). He apparently thought we were giving sd her own room and that the baby will be in our room (yes the baby will be in our room for a couple months). After telling him no he suggested we give up our bedroom for sd and sleep in the living room!! She only comes EOWE!! I talked him into her sharing a room with the other two........then I had to open my big mouth again. :(
SD is almost 3 and refuses to sleep in her toddler bed. He gives in and lets her sleep in a pack and play!!!!!!!!!! YIKES!! (sd's behavior and dhs lack of punishment are a huge issue in the household right now!!) I put my foot down yesterday and said NO MORE PACK AND PLAY!! Then, like I said, I opened my mouth again :( I suggested we move the toddler bed to the basement and bring it up on her weekends. Im not trying to leave her out, I'd have the bed up and ready before she came. My reasoning is, we are trying to redo the floors. One bedroom is completely off limits right now and we are refinishing hardwood in the living room so theres no where but the one bedroom left for the kids to play. BUT with bunk beds and a toddler bed set up they have no room in their bedroom either. I just suggested we move it back and forth. Was that horrible? Dh thought it was and is upset. He said, "this is *sds* house now too and its her room!!" Im not trying to leave her out or not let her have space, but I am trying to be practical. One of my friends said "when i went to my dad and stepmoms i slept on the couch and never minded a bit!"
What do you guys do with your skids??
Last night I tried to compromise with dh. I suggested we get some help from a few friends and get the 3rd bedroom remodel done asap. I told him then sd could have that room until the baby is old enough to move into there. I explained again to him the only reason I want the baby to have its own room for awhile is so its not waking up the girls all night. The nerve of this guy...... He told me that I was again leaving sd out!! He said she wouldn't feel at home and wouldn't understand why the older two got to share a room and I am making her be all alone!! It was his idea originally to give sd her own room!! I don't find it at all practical to give someone their own room for 4 days a month, but was trying to make dh happy! I asked him, "Why is nothing ever good enough for you or her?" He said, "She will always be my princess, get used to it!"
