If you read my post earlier today about Mia’s new favorite activity, you’ll understand why I’ve been pulling my hair out this past week. I swear that between her peeing all over the place and Lila playing in the toilet, I’ve about had enough. The Empress keeps telling me they can live with her, and Sherri keeps telling me she’ll take them too. I’m about ready to take you up on your offers ladies!
Jason and I have been talking about separating the girls and putting them in their own rooms. Mia tends to stay awake longer while Lila falls asleep as soon as her head hits the pillow. Lila tends to wake up earlier than Mia, and then wakes up Mia. That makes Mia grouchy…and a grouchy Mia makes everybody miserable.
In order to move one of the girls out, we’re going to have to move our office downstairs. The room doesn’t have a whole lot of room since it’s the guest room (even though nobody ever stays in it), so our big old office desk won’t fit. I’ve been thinking about getting a cheap office desk…maybe even a corner desk with hutch that will be more space friendly. I’ve really got to look at corner desks for small spaces. The more I think about how little room there is in there, the more I’m wondering how everything will fit.
Then I’m thinking I could move the file cabinet into the closet and get it out of the way. The bookshelf? Maybe just keep it in Lila’s new room. All the crap I’m going to have to clean out of the office’s closet? I don’t even want to think about it! I have nowhere to put all of that stuff.
So now I’m thinking maybe we don’t move Lila out of that room. We’ll wait for as long as possible before we separate them (READ: I’m too lazy to have to clean out the closet and will put it off for as long as possible).
If you have kids sharing a room, how do you keep them from bothering each other during nap and sleep time?
