Our little piece of Pride and Predjudice

Thanks grandma for the leopard doona. We lurve it. And have to share it.

I love stories about sisters snuggling in the same bed telling each other stories.

Even better when they are a little more grown - like Pride and Prejudice!

(maybe I should have a 5th girl!  OH! MR Bennett! lol the fun I could have with my MR!)

My mother often slept in her sisters bed.

When I posted about the girls loving their bunk arrangement I loved a comment I got.

Recently I was toying with the idea of sleeping the girls in a double bed. It's a bit old fashioned and thought it would be cute while their still little. She said she loved the idea from watching Joseph Smith movies. All the siblings in the one bed!

I also had the idea from seeing some little twins on Oprah. They had the cutest queen size bed to share!

When I only had two girls, they each had their own room.

Now my reasons for squeezing may be

family size related
monetary related (we used to have students in our spare room),
space related
mess related (keep it all in one spot!)
heating and cooling related (easy to do that to one room)

However  I also  like to think of it as lifestyle choice. Old fashioned fun.

Lately they've taken to sleeping like this. The top bunk is now left empty.

It won't last forever, but I hope their memories do.

Oh that's so sweet! If I can't sleep all my girls in the same bed I dream of sleeping them all in the same room kind of like a dorm. Beds 1,2,3 bedsides 1,2,3 drawers 1,2,3. Only prob is they may hate it in their teen years?

How cute! We all had our own rooms growing up, but would end up on the floor in mum and dad's room sharing mattresses just because we liked being together. It really does create great memories :)

Hi Bobbie,
got to love this news article - apparently four children is the bees knees! I laughed at your recent blog entry title "Another one, I'm spoilt!" I immediately thought it was another baby! shut my mouth now!
