Our girls shared a bedroom until they were 5 and 7. Then my elder daughter was adamant that they needed separate spaces to sleep. Thankfully we ended up moving into a place that could facilitate that. For the past 2 months, we have been having sleep issues with both girls, but more so with KJ. School anxiety, adjusting back from BC and hitting the preteen years have all contributed, so when the girls asked for a sleepover in the Bear’s new loft bed, we agreed.
That was 3 weeks ago. They still cuddle up together every night in a twin bed and knock off for a glorious 9 hours. They still bicker during the days (though I think it is less), but every evening finds them climbing the ladder up to bed together.
I don’t get it, but I kinda love it.
