3 Kids, 1 Bedroom: It Can Be Done! (Part Two)

By sharonbeesley |

I started this series yesterday with a discussion I had with my readers about siblings sharing a room. I loved hearing what you all had to say! Read it here. Today I’ll show you how Renee Tougas from Fimby fits her three kids into one room.

I love that Renee is totally unapologetic about having her three kids share a room. She writes in this post:

Trust me, this is not a tale of woe of how our children all share a bedroom. A first world “problem” like that is offensive to the majority of the world’s population. Or at least, it offends me on their behalf.

As a mother who also has her three kids share a room, these are my sentiments exactly! Check out her blog to see how she makes it work. The homemade details she includes in the room make it feel warm and unpretentious. Nicely done Renee!

    I love this. In a time where people feel so entitled that each of their children have their own little suite…. it speaks volumes and she is so right about the rest of the world!
    I have a friend who has three kids (set of twins and a younger). They started with the twins in one room and the younger in his, but they always ended up in the same room together. So they did double bunks in one room and made the other a play room. Mostly every morning, they awaken to all three boys in one bed together!!

    I have three sons (7,5,1) and they have always shared a room – dormitory style. At first it was out of necessity. Then, we moved and I decided one room was easier to pick up than two. When my third son was born our older sons expected their new brother to room w them. My husband and I were all, “ok!” We’ve recently moved again and our new house has enough space for each boy to have his own room. But guess what? They rather room together. Maybe this will change when they become teenagers. But for now I’m endeared by the fact that they rather be together!

    Sorry but I don’t agree with people I always had my own room and my brothers had their own room. Now that I have two adult sons they both have their own room I have a six bedroom house and I believe everyone should have their own space. I don’t agree with putting children to share room that is just crazy and I don’t agree with these people. I love to clean and rather clean all six bedrooms and knowing my children have their privacy and their own space.

    I have three kids in a 5 bedroom house. My older two share because they want to, and have been asking for their baby sister to move it too. I think it’s sweet. And I get my own craft room…
