We are in Florida! All of our belongings are on a truck somewhere between San Diego and Orlando, so we are basically camping in a house, lots of fun. We do have a guest bed and loaner sofa, which the awesome furniture store we ordered a new sectional from let us use. Kolbe also bought a cheap TV so we can watch TV at night and of course we brought along the Playstation. We are getting random projects done and currently we are debating where the baby’s room will be. I’m not allowed to tell you which room I am campaigning for (and let’s be honest I’m the mom so I’ll probably get my way but……. I happen to have a husband with an opinion, imagine that). However, I will give you the pros and cons to each. One room will be the nursery and the other room the guest room. Here goes…..
Here is our house floor plan. The master suite is on the left side of the house and the other 3 bedrooms are on the right side.
Option 1: Make bedroom #2 the nursery and Bedroom #3 the guest room. The baby will be close to the main area of the house while the guests will have some privacy by being farther away from the main areas of the house. The babies room will be close to her own bathroom and in the middle of the night the walk from our room to the nursery will be shorter.
Option 2: Make bedroom #2 the guest room and bedroom #3 or #4 the nursery. Bedroom #2 is the biggest room so the guest will feel comfortable and roomy with a queen size bed, while bedrooms 3 and 4 are smaller and will be quieter because they are farther from the main areas of the house. As are family grows the larger rooms will make more sense to transition kids into and possibly 2 kids sharing a room, but this will not apply for awhile (unless like my husband says we are shot gunning these kids out, yikes!)
Give me your thoughts!
