Can you believe that these 3 kids sleep in the same bedroom? I'm sure many people, especially out here in Polynesia have, more than this in a room together. But I bet on the Mainland this is uncommon to have this many in a room. It makes bedtime a FUN event! OH SO FUN! They do pretty good together. I feel that the closeness in age is best when sharing rooms.They are usually more patient with each other.
Evee USUALLY is great at bedtime. She sits in her crib and watches the boys during book time, songs & prayers. BUT sometimes...she screams and cannot handle the bars that restrain her freedom to roam.
Sometimes I get really grumpy with having so many kids sharing a room. Its so funny how you evolve and change with the trials and adventures in your life, your dreams change too. I used to want only 4 children and have enough bedrooms to each kid have their own room...and so much more in a house. NOW that I have 5 kids in a 3.5 bedroom house, my views have seriously changed. I owe it all to Hawaii, for changing my views...mostly because YOU CAN'T AFFORD to have bedrooms for every kid. I have dreams of owning a FARM...but that's a WHOLE other blogpost for that. We used to own a house that had 4 bedrooms, 2 living rooms a spacious kitchen & dining room, 2 bathrooms, a storage room AND a laundry room....did you hear that a LAUNDRY ROOM! Ok, I don't miss it.....ok atleast MOST of the time.
But SOMETIMES when its late, kids keep coming in and out of the bedrooms, someone overly hyper and can't sleep while the other is dying to go to bed, someone ALWAYS has to pee, and someone else wants a drink....YES SOMETIMES I get REALLY jealous of those with many bedrooms.
One day I will miss these days.
