We found out I was pregnant with our 4th child, two days after we closed on our house. I love our house and have no intention on moving. It is a 3 bedroom house and currently my 2 boys are sharing a room, my husband and I of course are sharing a room, and our daughter has her own room. I'm only 3mo. along, so I don't know what I am having yet. I just figured that if it was a girl, she would go in our daughter's room (once she starts sleeping through the night) and if it is a boy, he will go in the boy's room. Some family members, think we are just being horrible, because we expect 3 boys (if it's a boy) to share a room. I know it isn't a huge room, but it is big enough for a bunk bed, a regular bed and a couple dressers with still a little room to play. We have over an acre of land, and a full basement (unfinished so kids can ride bikes) and I think there is plenty of places for the kids to play. We have also decided that we are going to build an extra room in the basement when the kids get older if one wants to move down there. Is it so horrible for boys to share a room? I know it could get a little tight in there, but to me it is just a bedroom. We also live in the country with neighbors who don't care if our kids go fishing in their pond (when they're old enough) or go hiking in the woods.
