My daughter is 4 years old, my son will soon be 2. I am due mid-July. We only have two available bedrooms for them. We aren't sure whether to have daughter and son share for a bit until baby is older [no idea of baby's gender] or to have 4 year old and baby share. My worry about baby and 4 year old is that she will try and play mommy and take her out of the crib. But people keep telling me I shouldn't have a son and daughter share a room. I don't see why not, they aren't teenagers. And I don't want baby and 2 year old to share because....I just don't trust a baby and a 2 year old together. and those nights of teething should just be mommy and baby awake, not the whole family.And we don't want to share our bedroom because we just don't think kids belong in parents' bedroom beyond the first month or so in the bassinet. If big kids share we'll also have to deal with the 2/4 year olds giggling and not sleeping because they want to play. What do you all think?
