Over crowded?


Yes, those are my 2 oldest children sleeping in the top bunk, twin size bed. For the record, there was a completely empty queen bed in the next room over. In their words, they didn't want to sleep there because they didn't want to be alone in that other room. "That other room" was said in a way that would convince any stranger of a horrific monster lurking in there. The kind of monster whose sole purpose is to torture and eat little girls.

Ahem, there are 2 of you. That's not alone. And "that other room" is right next door. But, hey, I know how to pick my battles. I couldn't care less where they sleep. As long as they are getting adequate rest, and actually under my roof.

This is the way it's always been in our home. Every child has an assigned bed. A bed that's their very own. A bed they don't have to share. But every night, it's musical beds. I have even gone in there some nights to find 3 in one twin, 2 in another, and 4 empty beds in the rest of the house. Inevitably, all 5 girls end up in the same room. Why am I so worried that they need their own space?

Also notice Faith's twisted hair stuck in her ear. Just think, some people have normal kids who simply suck their thumb.

Quick, unrelated link....but this had me in stitches!

my kids would never dream of playing musical beds. they are so protective of their space that that bothers me.

I would think you and I are one in the same sometimes...LOL.My kids have bunkbeds and each DID have their own room,but they just couldnt stand being apart so I put the girls together in the room right next to Man Man but thus far she wants to sleep in the room with Man Man instead,apparently he is a better protector.....

My little boy twists his hair at the top of his head. It's hilarious! He's been doing it since he was tiny. I think it's great - no soggy, wriggly thumbs! I wonder if he'll still be doing it when he's the age your daughter is!!! Would boys get away with that?!?!? Love your bed quilts - so very pretty.

You know, my twins freaked out when we put them in the same room for a while. So we moved them back to separate rooms and they bunk together very often. Weird.
