Grace and Hope are going to share a room, that’s always been the plan. Now Hope is 1, she’s been in our bedroom the whole time. She sleeps through the night, I’m almost back to sleeping through the night. I’m wondering if it’s time to move her into the room with Grace? I don’t know how attached Hope is to our room, I don’t know if I want to find out — so maybe I should move her before she starts crying like a typical kid. On the other hand, I’m not sure I could sleep without her in the room — it would feel so empty without her. I’d probably end up sleeping in a sleeping bag in the girls room.
The other drawback is that I know it means earlier mornings, as soon as Grace wakes up in the morning and sees her sister she’s going to be “up.” Right now, I hear her wake up around 6:00a, but there’s nothing for her to do so she usually goes back to sleep until 8:00a. Those days are gone once her roomie moves in.
Then there are the obvious safety concerns, but I mean we’ll never really know that Grace will pull Hope out of the crib until we give it a try — or is that just crazy talk? You decide.
