Before I get into what this post is actually about I just wanted to share if you didn't know (or don't care) that Princess Kate has announced that she is due in July. Well. Guess what Kate? Me too! Me. Too. My blogger friend Baby Teems was right. I don't appreciate all these celebs trying to steal my shine, haha! Just kidding. So many of my friends have been announcing that they are expecting on Facebook. I feel like there's a new announcement from someone just about everyday. So. I'm in good company and it's a great time to be with child. Apparently.
So. Anyway. Now that I'm a little further along I've been thinking about where this baby is going to sleep. I know. Too soon? Possibly. But for anyone that knows me in real life you know that I'm all about having things planned out. I decided that it would be so much easier for me if the kids just shared a room. We'll probably move again within a year of me having the baby so this option will work out well until it's time to move again. Even though there is currently space for a separate nursery it would involve too much work. Someone would have to clear all the furniture out of the extra room (which is currently an unused "man cave" but we won't get into that) and then move it to a storage facility. I am not trying to spend money on storage and I don't want to give up the other room that's used for guests.
Still with me? Has anyone had a toddler and a newborn share a room? How did it go? Here are some of the ideas I've found on Pinterest. I am using these as inspiration for furniture placement. If it's a girl we'll keep the same decor that Savannah already has. If it's a boy I'll try to neutralize the room as much as possible.
