To share

First of all, thank you for your patience as I've figured out what the heck was going on with blogger.

Thanks to a tip from a friend, I downloaded Google Chrome and amazingly(that was sarcastic) Google's own search engine works much better with blogger, which is owned by Google.

So now all my blogging and commenting issues have been resolved. Yay! And I can post more regularly, hopefully daily again.

Now on to my post! I know you were just waiting with bated breath. You were right?

As mentioned in previous posts, which I can't refer to because I'm not an organized blogger, I like to move my kids around. Switch up their bedrooms so that things work better. Whether it is toy organization or in this case Anne Marie's loneliness at being in a room by herself.

So we moved her and Nora in together and Anne Marie was so happy.

Well then Nora got too big for her toddler bed. No, I didn't cry this time like I did with moving her out of a crib. It didn't seem as bad. I don't know why.

Anyhoo, we needed to put Nora into a twin bed, but two twin beds don't fit in that little bedroom. And we only had money for a cheap twin bed, not the nice wood one I wanted.

Sooo, Kate gracefully gave up the double bed she was sleeping in, and got Anne Marie's twin bed in return.

And now Nora and Anne marie share a bed! I love it. Again, I don't know why. I never shared a bed with my sister, but we would push our twin beds together so that we could sleep by eachother.

And I've always thought that sisters sharing a bed is the sweetest thing. I get a twinge of jealousy when people tell me they shared a bed with their sisters.

I'm not jealous of my own girls, just happy for them. Now all of my children share a bedroom. Even though we have an extra one. I really don't think anyone NEEDS their own room. It may be easier sometimes, but it's definitely not a need. No matter what our teenagers may say.

So now Nora and Anne Marie can be that much closer. They share a room, they share a bed. And hopefully they will share a friendship and a love for eachother that will expand beyond just their time together under this roof.

For tomorrow, a sneak peek at one of the things I've been working on in my bedroom. Just pretend you're excited, ok?


  1. well, i don't have to pretend, i really am excited. i always love a good bedroom redo (and in fact am planning my own) so i'll be waiting...

    and your girls look precious. i was an only child so i can't say i even had the desire to share anything with anyone. not that i was selfish or anything!

  2. I love this post for so many reasons. (Including you saying bated breath--not baited as many people so wrongly do. Sorry, that's the editor in my coming out!)

    I didn't have my own room until I was an adult and firmly believe that sharing a room (and a bed) growing up is a good thing. It teaches us that we are a communal society; it teaches us to share; and it forces us to form friendships with our siblings.

    I'm so pleased that your kids are excited about sharing!!

  3. I shared a room all my siblings at some point. Do you guys have 5 bedrooms on WA? So this means you have a guest bed now, right? :)

  4. Yes Jill! We do have a guest room so that any of our beloved family and friends can visit anytime they want to! You just have to share the room with the toys, but I figure that's not much different than how most of us live anyway:)

  5. Now that we live West of the Mississippi, we might just get out to see you. Washington sounds really nice as a break from this heat.

  6. I have to admit, I loved sharing a room with you even though we fought sometimes. I was a little sad when we got our own rooms. But, just a little :)

  7. I loved sharing a room with you...well most of the time. I would totally share one with you again. Once we are old and in a nursing home we can be roommates again :)

  8. Mom I know that, that "No matter what our teenagers say" sentence was directed at me.
