Let's Talk Babies!

One of the big issues that has come up as a result of the upcoming arrival of The Surprise is where everyone will sleep. We are lucky that we do have a four bedroom house so we have a few options open to us including the possibility that everyone gets their own room. It is nice to have options and I’m thankful for that.

The question is, which option is best? The way our house the laid out three bedrooms are upstairs, the master and what are currently Maya and Anna’s bedrooms. The fourth bedroom is on the main floor and currently serves as our office. And, when guests come to visit we throw an air mattress on the floor and call it a guest room ;) Since the fourth bedroom is on the main floor it doesn’t really lend itself well to being a bedroom for any of our young children. So, really it is unlikely we will go with a bedroom plan that will involve everyone having their own room and using the fourth bedroom. It makes Lorne happy too because he isn’t too keen on giving up his office.

Which leaves us with the most likely room set up, having two of the kids share a room. Maya’s room is huge and would serve well as a bedroom for two. We are pretty sure what we will end up doing is having Maya and Anna share a room, in Maya’s current room and give Anna’s bedroom to the baby. Maya is excited about sharing a room because she really wants bunk beds. I think it will work out well.

The question remains as to when to make the transition. Anna is still in a crib with no indication she isn’t enjoying it or is even considering trying to climb out. I hate the idea of prematurely switching her to a big girl bed and opening up a potential can of worms when it comes to nap time and bed time. However, I don’t want to have to buy another crib for what would likely be a fairly short period of time. So, in all likelihood, I’ll move her to a big girl bed before the baby comes so we can use the crib for the baby. The summer seems the best time to make the transition as we don’t have to worry about strict bed times and early wake up calls for school. And, hopefully, by making the transition in the summer everyone will be sleeping well in their new digs before Maya starts school and before I am again thrust into the sleepless newborn phase.

I know it will all work out, and I’m probably worrying too much about it, but hey I’m a mom and that’s what I do :)

    I remember vividly the day my family moved from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Chicago. I was all of ten years old and like any child would be, excited to see the city. My father had received a promotion at the bank he had worked at since well before I was born and we were now leaving the relative comfort of our home for an apartment on Michigan Avenue. Driving into the city was almost surreal, and although sullen over leaving my friends behind, I was enthralled with the possibility of great opportunities that lay ahead. All the wonder and amazement I was experiencing after having traveled through the concrete canyons of the Windy City was soon overshadowed by the news that my father decided to impart to me the moment we entered our new domicile. I would be sharing a room with my younger brother.’
