I'd like your opinions on how, come September, my 3 kids should fit into 2 bedrooms.
Thinking about the addition of a 3rd child in our 3 bedroom town home requires some creativity, particularly when it comes to sleeping arrangements. I know we have time until the baby is born and even after the baby is born he/she will probably sleep in our room for the first 4-6 months. But still, I'd kinda like the rooms set before the baby is born.
Our plan is to put Emmett (who'll be almost 4) and Eisley (who'll be almost 2) in the same room and give baby his/her own room. Currently, Emmett is in a toddler bed which can convert to a crib. Eisley is in a crib. So, should we do:
1) bunk beds (crazy to think my little Emmett could be sleeping on a TOP bunk! Then we'd have to sell one of the cribs)
2) twin beds for both kids (I just imagine those sweet rooms in pottery barn kids with the two coordinating bedspreads on side by side beds each with their own little night stand and lamp...ahhhh)
3) twin for Emmett, toddler for Eisley (we'd only have to buy one bed)
4) toddler for Emmett and crib for Eisley (as they are now, would have to buy another crib for baby which seems like a bit of a waste)
After typing this all out, which kinda helped me sort through it, it seems like putting Eisley in the toddler bed and getting Emmett a twin bed would be the most financially responsible thing to do. However, I want it to look cute too! I just can't really picture that. My dear friend, who I don't think reads my blog (Jammie are you out there?), has 3 kids in one room (no bunk beds) and it looks ADORABLE! So I know it's possible!
OK, so I WANT YOUR ADVICE. What did you do? What worked? What didn't? Do you have a bed you're selling? :)
