I know that it may seem like putting the cart before the proverbial horse. But we were talking tonight about if our children would share a room. We have a 3 bedroom house...master, small bedroom that Sam has now and a bigger bedroom that is our catch-all/junk/computer/office/hunting stuff/trap shooting stuff room. Eventually no matter what happens (another child or not), Sam will be getting the "office" as her room. It's not quite twice the size of the room that she has now and a little further down the hall from our bedroom.
Our debate tonight is if we have another girl would we be better to have them both share the bigger room and make the smaller one our office. We have some important stuff that can't go into our semi damp basement so we have to keep space here some how. My computer and trap shooting guns can't handle the damp and I won't have them in my child's room for obvious reasons.
My husband thinks that its fine for them to share a room until Sam reach puberty and then she would need her own room. By then hopefully we would have a damp proof gun safe and my computer will be so out of date that I hope to have a laptop. He also thinks that even if we have a boy they could share a room for a few years. But I am not so keen on that idea. I think that girls could share because Sam would want her room pink or purple and that isn't right to make a boy sleep in those colors...heck I can't sleep in a pink room...lol
I live in the house that I grew up in and I had to share a room growing up with usually 2 other girls (my parents were foster parents). And we all shared the room that Sam will be moving into so the space is do-able. Also keep in mind that Sam and future baby would be 5ish years apart.
So my questions are....
1. Would you have 2 girls share a room even though you have bedrooms for 2?
2. Would you put a boy baby and a girl together
3. How long would you leave them together?
