Went to see the progress of my new house last weekend. It is almost done - 80% complete according to the loan schedule!!!
So, my mind is now filled with little decorative and renovation ideas when it is not filled with Christopher and cooking and ironing and washing and...hubby!
The one things weighing most heavy on my thoughts is the sleeping arrangement.
Option 1 - allow the kids to sleep with us till they are bigger
Option 2 - kick boyboy to his own room and only let #2 (when it happens) sleep with us in the cot until he/she grows too big for the cot!
Now Option 2 might mean that I will have to build an adjoining door in between the master bedroom and the kid's room. This is to avoid them going out to the landing and performing any stunts near the staircase. But then if I kick him/them to their own rooms, I would be able to get a bed!! And also decorate my master bedroom properly!
I know many stick to Option 1 simply becoz the kids still have nightmares/wake up in the middle of the night etc. But I also know that most who start off with Option 1 end up having the kids with them till they are old enough to want to sleep alone or when the moon turns blue! :) And having Option 1 would mean that my master bedroom will be 1 queen mattress and 2 single mattresses on the floor!!!
So, what do you do? What will you do? What do you think I should do?
