I am asking this in a hurry. :) We have #4 coming in 3 months. We forgot we had scheduled a carpet cleaning for today so we spent the evening last night stripping everything from the kids rooms,and such. I am suddenly hit with a nesting urge to not put anything back until I go through it all, toss half, and put things where they will live when baby comes. So I am trying to think fast.
My oldest is downstairs with her own space so she is a non-issue. We also have a play area downstairs where the little ones' have many toys.
Upstairs is the master bedroom, and 2 other rooms. We will have a 4 yr old, 19 month old and new baby. Well I guess when baby comes we will have a 4 yr old, 22 mnth old and baby. All girls so far and we do not know about the 4th, although at this point, it is irrelevant. So right now each kid has a room with their stuff, including a sleeping space, although they end up with us most of the time. 4 yr old has a closet full of clothes, games, etc, a twin bed she starts the night in and sometimes finishes it. Her dresser, bookshelves, etc are in there. My 19 month old has a futon mattress on the floor since I sleep in there with her on the nights that the older one is extra kicky and comes in our bed. We still have a rocking chair from when she was little, her shelves of books and toys, large closet with her clothes, diapers, some slings, and other random stuff.
New baby will have diapers, baby blankets, clothes, and the other baby stuff. I am trying to figure out how to organize rooms.
Would you gut out some stuff from the 19 month old's closet and have her share space with the baby? Or move more of her stuff to the 4 yr olds room? Of make one closet the kids' clothes closet and one the toy/stuff closet?
How do you org your stuff when you have more kids that rooms/closets?
