My oldest is almost four. He is still in our bed and I was starting to feel like that was old. I love him with me but just feel like I need a break from laying down with him nightly. My dh is home most nights and puts the baby to sleep when I put #1 down. He isn't motivated by a new bed either. NOT AT ALL! I think moving them at the same time is the best choice for us too. Must wait until #2 is old enought to go. He of course would probably be fine. Wish I had more...
We are: wall, ds #1 (3 1/2), me, ds #2 (12 mo), dh. I'm between the two because they both want me. my oldest doesn't want much of dh at night so I'm close to him. I want dh's help with #2 so that is why our arangement is he way it is. I'm currently dreaming of a smaller bed for two. Not going to happen anytime soon.
thank you

My issues with CIO come from personal experience. In leaving a very hard relationship with...

To be truely off the grid, smaller is better. But having said that, you can easily live in it with a few kids. The rooms are roomy. The bathrooms were awesome. It is all creative and you can make it exactly like you want it to be. They sell basic designs, but it is all customized. Mainly there is one large multipupose room, a bathroom, kitchen and at least one bedroom if not two. I thought we coud do it, but we have a smaller size house (around 1000 sf). It was in Taos,...
