Rethinking the Bedrooms...

Earlier this year we bought bunk beds for Dakota's room as we thought the girls could simply room together. A few months before leaving for China, I was looking at Dakota's room and thinking that it was just that..."Dakota's Room". I knew then I was making mental plans to make Shiloh her own room, which meant Chuck would lose his trout room. (It was all decorated in Trout fishing.) So little by little I got the plans together and with a visit to target and a few gifts from the shower at work....Shiloh has her own room!!! Dakota's room has the Blues, greens, Purples and Pinks with the bunk Beds and now Shiloh's has the pink, orange and green. Shiloh's room has a Queen Bed and so the rails we had fit perfectly and this works better for her sleeping in this bed instead of the bunk beds. So each night the Turner's all lay down in Mommy and Baba's king bed.....when shiloh falls asleep she is moved to her bed and when Dakota is asleep she is moved to hers. Then sometime in the middle of the night Mommy ends up in the bed with Shiloh and sometimes with Dakota and sometimes back in the bed with works for us. Hopefully this will give Dakota a better nights sleep for going to school. (Mommy will still probably be tired going to work when she returns....oh well, you cannot have it all!)

Yeah, Kim, we do what we have to do, don't we? Sounds like you have a plan that works for you and that's great!

Hope Dakota's first day goes well!
