When Talia moves out of our bed, it will be straight into a bedroom with her three sisters.
Straight into a bunk bed in fact, in a teeny bedroom containing four beds. Whilst I really don't worry about them sharing a room, them each being able to get time away from the others is a concern - more or less, much of the time. They also really have nowhere to put their things where the others can't get at them.
We are trying to get shelves up for each of them beside their beds. And they have art and things on the walls marking out their special space, their retreat from each other.
We do everything we can to defend those bed spaces, helping to remove sisters who don't respect property rules. Oh it is only going to get harder as they get older and seek out space from each other more often!
There is a small spare room here. Right now it is a guest room /play space, and they take it in turns to sleep on the floor in here if and when they request an escape from the shared space.
I do wonder if this will be enough, whilst knowing that we are unlikely to ever move. In many ways, we have chosen to be poor - at least, we have chosen to pursue our dreams and what we wanted for our children even knowing that the compromise would likely be money. :)
I love their little room spaces, the things they have chosen to display. And I really am going to get around to sorting out shelves for them all. Before Talia moves in. ;)
PS: can you guess which bed belongs to which girl? :)
