Sharing a room?

Do your kids share a room?

Right now I have my older 2 girls sharing (they are 11 and 9) and then our baby has her own room.  The older 2 want their own rooms but have ALWAYS shared.  We have thought about adding a room for them but I'm not sure...  seems like they wouldnt be as close if we did that.   :-(

I always remember on full house the older two shared a room and the baby had her own. When the baby got a big girl bed the oldest got her own room and the younger two shared a room. Unless you have room for everyone to have their own room I would suggest something similar. Right now our girls have their own room but there may come a time if we have another baby that they will have to share, that is life.

Right now the boys have their own, if this baby is a boy our oldest will eventually get his own room. If it's a girl the boys will share and she will have her own room.

The girls share a room (they are 9 and 4) and the boy has his own room (he's 7).

 my boys are 6 and 3 and they share.. we have no other option. only 2 bedrooms. once we can move they will get their own room. i think that around your girls ages is when they are starting to look for more privacy and independance and space of their own. my sister and I are 2 years apart.. we starte doff sharing a room then got our own.. i think having our separate space made us get along better. less fighting for sure!

My DD and DS each have their own room. When the baby comes depending on the gender it will share with one of them :)

All of our girls have their own room 18, 9, and 7 yo.  We also have a very big older home with more than enough bedrooms, 8bed and 9bath home. We are hoping to move to a normal size home  and I would like the girls to still have their own rooms, but keeping the option open they might need to share if it is the right house in all other areas.
