Growing up in a big family has its advantages. For one, as one of seven girls, I get a lot of hand me downs. I loved them, I couldn’t wait to get some of the hand me downs. When the moments came, it was like getting an award from your older sisters. An award ceremony that said “I now crown you as the owner of a blouse that has rightfully earned the war stains from all your other older sisters.” And that moment, imagine me with the biggest and proudest smiles ever.
Now that I can officially say I am finally on my own - with my immediate family only. Eight months and counting. Sometimes I feel the need to be surrounded by a lot of people and the need for the crowded feeling again.
My master bedroom seemed really huge to me at times. The happiest moments in this room have to be when we have our family movie nights. My three kids, SO and myself all hang out in the same room with popcorn in attempts to watch a movie we all love. At one point, we even thought if we could have a couple of bunk beds instead would be so awesome. As most times the kids never can stay awake throughout a movie. There is something about being in the same room with a lot of people that makes us all feel very sleepy.
Another thought was to make the spare bedroom into a movie theatre room with bunk beds. I wouldn’t have to wake them up when we have movie nights, they would all be in their own beds already and can just fall asleep in the same spot. Wouldn’t that be so cool?
It would also be great for sleep overs as most of the time the kids have to sleep on the floors, there is no extra bed for that matter for them to sleep on. My family has a love for bunk beds and have a hard time of letting them go. Even now that the boys are older and they hardly fit in them, they still prefer to sleep in the same room. Mind you, the boys each have a room of their own.
