Wondering how we're fitting everyone in these days? It used to be that the girls shared one room (the smaller room) and the little boys another room (the larger room) And the toys were in with the little boys. When Denise came, the girls outnumbered the boys and they really needed the bigger room, that also happens to have a third closet. But if the kids switched rooms, where would the toys go? Since the Legos are the main attraction, often all the kids (plus a few friends) are in the room playing at the same time... that can often be up to 15 kids! They need a little space.
In came the bright idea to build a loft in the smaller of the two rooms for the little boys (the big boys share a closet size room in a different part of the house). The loft is actually big enough for four boys and sturdy enough for wrestling. We were even able to have an electrician come and install a light underneath the loft. The metal rod going across the ceiling is for the custom made mosquito net. The boys are really enjoying it up there!
And now they have the entire floor for all the toys. And just for kicks, I turned one wall into a chalkboard. How fun is that?
