I shared a room with my sister… I remember the day we got BUNK BEDS – it was pure joy and we were thrilled. I also vividly remember my sister climbing into my bed so we could whisper and comfort each other for hours the night our parents told us they were getting a divorce.
As the mom of a boy and a girl, I assumed my kids would never live through the ups and downs of sharing a bedroom with a sibling. Until recently, that is. My husband is obsessed with the idea of our kids sharing a room and has been relentless is making his case for it. To be honest, I’m not exactly sure why he likes the idea so much. (I think maybe he’s laying the groundwork for a man room dedicated office?) He’s even agreed that if we do move them into the same room I can redecorate and get new coordinating boy / girl bedding and bedroom furniture.
I really like that my kids have their own space, but if I’m being honest they rarely use their rooms for anything but sleeping. We will be moving this summer so it would be a good time to put them in the same room – he’ll be 4 and she’ll be 2. Is that too young to share a room?
Do your kids share a room? Do you have a boy and a girl in the same room – what are the unique challenges? At what ages did your kids start sharing a room and when do kids need their own space (if possible)?
This post is one in a a series sponsored by Sugar and Spice Decor – the first place I’ll be shopping for kids bedding if I create a shared boy / girl bedroom. Wouldn’t the coordinating kids sheet sets by Caden Lane (Modern Vintage in Pink and Blue) look amazing?
