Re: Room sharing
It wouldn't phase me at all. My almost 7yo, almost 5yo, 3yo and 18mo boys all share a big room together and love it. Before we moved to our current house our dd who was 7 at the time shared with her little brother who was a baby (the now 3yo). She adored him and loved having him in her room. He ended up in dd's room because my now 5yo was just too rowdy at the time. I had been pg with #6 (m/c) and our plan had been that if we had a girl that she would have shared with our dd who would have been 9.5 at that point. I have absolutely no problems with kids sharing rooms at all. I think the whole idea of each kid requiring their own room is a rather first world problem and a bit silly.
Leaving DS so I can spend less time on the computer and more time with my family
