How does it work?
Everly has been sleeping in our room (or, for the past 3 blissful weeks, in the 3rd bedroom at the place we’re house sitting) but I’m quite ready to have my room back.
But I feel like putting her in with Nico means that neither of them will ever sleep again. She goes to bed before him and I can’t imagine him quietly sneaking in and going to bed if she’s sleeping. She doesn’t sleep through the night-won’t he wake up when she cries? And he gets up waaaaay earlier than her (sometimes more than two hours!)-would I have to say goodbye to my dreams of her continuing to be a late sleeper??
Help! How does it work?? I love the idea of the two of them growing up sharing a room (and it’s becoming abundantly clear that we’re not going to be able to afford a three bedroom, and even if we were, I’d rather keep that room for an office/guest room), but I don’t really get how it actually works.
Here we are: moved our family across the country with no jobs, no cars, no place to live that doesn’t involve living with my mom. (But so far we’re loving it, by the way.)
And here’s the mom I vaguely knew in Brooklyn who also recently moved to the Bay Area and who we had a play date with this morning: sold their Park Slope brownstone for $300,000 over the asking price and bought a $1.5 million place in a fabulous neighborhood out here, adding a fourth bedroom onto it for the au pair who’s arriving from Mexico next month and planning a surprise party for her husband’s 40th birthday in Australia.
I mean, we are having such completely opposite life experiences that I barely know where I start.
