We have five bedrooms and five bathrooms in our house. We bought this home before we had any children, as if we had experienced a foreshadow about just how many kids we would end up having.
Despite the five bathrooms, my kids stand in line waiting to use one bathroom. They stand practically on top of each other doing the potty dance until I remind them how many restrooms we have.
Despite the five bedrooms in our home, this is how my kids sleep each night.
They are all sleeping on the floor next to Ava’s bed.
One night I went upstairs to check on all those littles and I found this sign on the triplets’ door:
They have been sleeping on the ground next to each other ever since.
It may be time to turn one of the rooms in our house back into the billiard room, as it was before kids. One day the kids may come home from school and find their room has been turned into a man cave, or perhaps a yoga/meditation room.
Maybe we should downsize our home.
Until next time, the mothership is signing off.
