I meet with the realtor on Tuesday to get the house on the market. I'm hoping to be moved out within 2 months, so I'm starting to look at what my options are for apartments.
My DD is 17 months old... so she'll be about a year and a half when we move. I'm fine with this being a shorter-term home because I'd like to buy another house or move back nearer to family in the long-term anyway. She co-sleeps part of every night but usually starts the night out in the crib. I don't expect to be dating again for at least a million years, so I'm not worried about that either. And the places I'm looking at are mostly 2-3 family houses that would be a 700-900 sq ft apartment with an eat in kitchen and separate dining room, plus additional storage space in the basement.
She'll visit her father probably 2-3 days/evenings a week (although hopefully spend pretty much all nights with me so she can keep nursing)... so I will have some alone time still. But will I really regret not having my *own* room? She's not really at the age where she plays in a room alone yet, you know? I just don't want to regret the decision though.
