Just curious.

We have one bedroom only and all sleep in there. We will add two bedrooms upstairs sometime in the future. No hurry, though.

Too funny. We have four bedrooms...for a while only one was slept in. Now hubby has the guest room (just can't take ds's frequent waking and moaning) and ds and I are in the master bed room. I think we need to downsize.

We have 4 - only 2 are used! DH sleeps on a sleeping bag on the floor in ds's room with him, and Me and dd get the kingsized bed with the crib sidcared to it in the Master broom! I think I get the better deal!

We have 2 bedrooms (an apt.) and only one is used for sleeping in. The other one has toys, changing table, dresser and other misc. stuff in it. Someday it will become our ds' bedroom.

Since DD was born we've had a 3 bdrm, a 1 bdrm, currently a 3 bdrm. We've only ever slept in one. We are currently looking for a 0 bedroom. We like it SMALL, lol.

4 bedrooms -

one for mama/daddy/kiddo sleep (a queen size bed with a twin shoved up next to it);

one child's room with plenty of room for kid to sleep with mom or dad (a twin bed with a twin trundle)

one junk room with a futon which is especially good for pregnant mama who likes to sleep ALONE!

one office, which currently contains a pregnant mama who should be asleep

3 bedrooms, only one is slept in. One's an office, and one is our baby's room, but it's really the cat's room. She's never slept in her crib, but the cat loves it! It's a $500 cat bed . . . MIL had to buy the best!

three bedrooms.

one is a bed room with our king sized bed, and our kids bunk beds (with a full on the bottom) for future use...

one is a great play room.

one is a great comp/ book room.

our 1200 sq. ft. house seems huge to people because we use our space wisely!

We have a possible 4 bedrooms and sleep in one. The 2 upstairs are storage, and the extra main floor bedroom is the 'study'.

We have 4:

1 master
1 for guests
1 for ds (2 1/2)
1 for #2 coming in one month

It is really this:

1 for me, with ds coming in around 2-3 am
1 for DH, because he snores so loudly and we haven't slept together for a whole night since I was 7 months preggo with ds #1 (he moved out too much tossing and turning with big ol' preggo wife)
1 for ds, who goes to sleep there but when he wakes usually comes in with me
1 for baby, to keep all the baby stuff in, who will most likely make the 3rd party in my room LOL

Ditto for us, Whit! You must live in the same small bungalow we do...

We have 4 (possibly 5) bedrooms:

1 is nursery where dd plays and diapers are changed

1 is guest room

1 is dh's office

1 (so small it's 1/2 really) is yoga/meditation room (which hasn't been used since dd was born)

1 is bedroom where dh and dd and I sleep in a queen-sized bed

__________

Needless to say when we have enough energy to move again we are going to downsize.

I'm laughing at all the responses! Especially zombiemommie.

Here's ours: 4 br that starts out:
1 for mom and dad
1 for dd#1
1 for dd#2
1 for computer/guest
(and a futon in living room)

By morning it's anyone's guess who's in what bed!!!!! And often we have a 10 yo cousin of mine spend the night and she prefers the futon with dd#1.

We have 2 bedrooms, and as of lately, both are slept in. Our current sleeping arrangement: I sleep in one of the bedrooms, and dh/ds co-sleep in the other.

Well, we technically have 6. One is in the basement and was the bedroom of the teenaged girl who lived here before we bought the house. I have that set up as my craft room, as it is large and doesn't have normal closets, but a lot of storage area built in. We have a bedroom on our main level that the previous owners used as an office, but we use that as a guest room since our guests mostly can't navigate stairs. If my mom moves in with us, that will become her room. The upstairs has 4 bedrooms, but one is so tiny that it almost doesn't count. We use that as an office, actually. Our daughter has her own room and sleeps there, we sleep in the master bedroom, and there is an extra one just taking up space. But it has a crib, changing table and all the cloth diapers and baby clothes in it. Eventually when our second child, the Lord willing, is old enough, she can have that room. I sleep in the master bedroom with my husband, or sometimes in my daughter's room with her. Lately she's been really restless at night, so I've slept with her which calms her down.
