See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Okay here's the situation
Boy 5 - Lives here 100% of the time
Girl 5 - Visits every other weekend
Baby - Due in October
We have two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms down stairs.
We will take a down stairs bedroom and the baby will have a down stairs bedroom. Those are set in stone
However, there are two bedrooms upstairs
One however, is not technically a bedroom, it's a sitting area. When you go up the steps, you are standing in the room. There is no door to it. No closet 2 windows. Then there's a door along the far wall - when you go through that door you are in a bedroom. There's a closet and two windows. Both "rooms" are relatively the same size.
1. DH wants to make the back room, Boy 5's room and the front room a play room for boy 5 and girl 5. He wants Girl 5 to sleep on the couch when she visits, since it's only 4 days a month and she sleeps in her bed MAYBE 2 days a month now. We tend to do living room movie nights when she visits.
2. His other option is to put girl 5's bed in the babies room, that way the older 2 will still have a play room.
3. My idea is to make the sitting area a play room, but put girl 5's bed in the play room, so she has her own space when she's over.
DH does not want to dedicate a room solely to girl 5, when she's only over every other weekend. He feels that option one is the best choice. Girl 5 is his daughter.
What do you ladies think - I just feel bad that she won't have her own room, like the other two that will live there full time.
