Growing up, I never shared a bedroom (thank God!!!) and I didn't want my boys to have either although my brothers were best buddies and roommates growing up. With 2 bedrooms and 2 kids we didn't have to worry about that! But now, we have a 3rd baby coming!
So since we are have another bundle of joy arriving in less than 2 months (!!) and Andrew is still a bit young to be on the 3rd floor by himself, the next logical solution was for the boys to share a bedroom for at least a year or so.
So far the room sharing seems to be working to our advantage. Korey used to read books to each of the boys till at least Patrick fell asleep in his room and then sometimes would come read to Andrew after (if Andrew was still awake after I read to him and Korey was done with Patrick)...now Korey reads them a couple of stories together and leaves! Then the boys use the StoryReader and it reads them a story. I walked in tonight to see them sitting on Andrew's bed together listening to Scooby Doo! So cute.
I am glad this is working out!!! And of course I do hope they will be best buddies!
