Why didn't I do this sooner?

It just dawned on me a few days ago that William's bedroom is a lot bigger than my office. Both rooms are next to each other and they used to be the girls' rooms before William was born and then they moved into bedrooms downstairs.  He only goes in his bedroom to sleep at night. How did I let a little kid get the bigger space? He doesn't even have that much stuff! It is also the one room in the house that is coldest in the Winter and warmest in the Summer. A light bulb went off in my head. I grabbed the girls and we switched rooms. Yep, I kicked the boy out of the big room with a full-sized closet and put him in a smaller, cozier room. Would you believe that now he wants to hang out and play in his "new room" all day long? It was a very smart move. It took me 3 1/2 years to think of it but at least it's done. I am loving my new office space and William is enjoying his new bedroom. We both win! :)

  1. Win-win. Smart mommy.

  2. I love your stories, Shelly!

  3. Good for you. You have alot of bedrooms. I still think about Dwayne and baby rent. Hahaha. I want to charge my grandson a fee, since he takes over almost every room.

  4. Great idea!!! I'm glad you thought of that. Kids definitely dont need all that extra space, and i am esp. happy that his new room is cozier and also warmer!

  5. wonderful! Bet he's loving his new room because it's not so overwhelming or too hot or cold.

  6. in the words of my daughter, "duh winning!" Great move Mom.

  7. LOVE it! Can't wait to see the new digs!
