When should siblings sleep in the same room together? Naomi has been sleeping in our guest room since moving out of our room around 1 month, just to make our lives easier at nap time and bedtime. A few months before she was born, I finally put together the “girls’ room”. I was so excited to have two little girls, and we wanted their space to be perfect. But Naomi hasn’t slept in there yet, and over the past 20 months or so, the room has been a little neglected. It’s been the place where I decorate with the leftovers or whatever I’m finished with downstairs. I never even finished one of their walls, and just hung whatever was laying around (second photo above). We just partnered with Minted, and tried out their brand-new art shelves and matted mounted artwork.
I am absolutely in love with these art shelves. The girls each have a shelf to display their own artwork, and whatever else they like. Zoe is so pleased that she’s able to reach the shelves (with a little help from her pouf) and change things out. And it just warms my heart to see her styling and arranging her space. How whimsical is that art print of a girl traipsing through the ocean? I love the way this wall turned out!
We’re just about ready to finally put the girls in the same room! We’re looking for toddler-sized bunk beds since their room is so tiny, and twin mattresses would take up too much space. They’ve been napping well together while traveling the past week or so, which is encouraging! I know we’re a bit late putting them in the same room, but since we have a usually-empty guest room, it seemed like the best decision to make nap time and bedtime a little easier. But they really love playing together now, and they are both old enough to understand “be quiet and go to sleep now.” And I love hearing them chatter away before drifting off to sleep together. Some of my best memories of childhood involve bunk beds (and even sometimes floor beds), and sharing a room with two of my sisters! Excited for this next season!
