My girls are 21 months and they have been in the same room since birth and they've slept in the same crib until they were 5 months. But now that they are getting older and getting so many toys as well as me adding new things to their room (book shelves, little rocking chairs their grand dad made for them) its starting to get a little cramped. These things on top of 2 cribs, a glider and otterman and twin bed, and 2 twin chest. Plus with Xmas coming and we are planning on getting them a kitchen and art easle, etc. I have no idea where to put everything!
So....my question is......Do I finally split the girls up and give them their own room or do I turn the spare bedroom into a playroom? We have 4 bedrooms on the main floor and a huge basement with 2 more bedrooms but the basement is freezing and I amost never go down there unless I'm doing laundry. On the main floor, Our room (the master) a guest room, the girls room, and then the office/workout room (both use to have their perspective rooms in the basement but since I haven't utilized the basement since girls were born my husband brought everything upstairs for me).
I just know how they would do if I split them up since they've been together for so long. My intial plan was to allow them to stay together until they were ready to split up but the space is shrinking and FAST!!!
