Now that Lila and Mia have figured out how to climb out of their cribs, the question of whether we separate them and put them in their own rooms or keep them together in one room is looming in our heads.
To move them is a lot of work…cleaning out closets that are packed full with stuff that hasn’t seen the light of day in years (I’m a pack rat, though not a Hoarder), moving our “office” from upstairs to the downstairs guest bedroom, and buying more furniture.
Here’s the thing: when we bought bedroom furniture for the twins, we bought 2 convertible cribs (you know, the kind that go from a crib to toddler bed to full-size bed), one chest of drawers, and an armoire. We figured they would just share a room and that we wouldn’t need two bedroom sets of furniture. How wrong we were!
Turns out that even though they are still in their cribs, it’s like a slumber party in there all the time! We put them to bed and they laugh and giggle and talk for usually a half hour before one of them dozes off. Mia stays awake longer than Lila, Lila wakes up earlier than Mia and then wakes Mia up. And if they were in big girl beds? I’m sure they’d be climbing in and out of bed AND climbing in and out of each others’ beds.
Since I really don’t want to spend a ton of money, all I need to do is find a chest of drawers for sale and we’d be set. Or, I guess we could give one of them the armoire and the other can use the chest of drawers that we already bought. That will work…and then I don’t have to spend a penny!
But I still have to clean out those closets…
