childrens-simplified-shared-bedroomAfter: Both of my children now have their own bedroom space but choose to sleep in the same room at night. There is a spare fold-up mattress underneath Mr 5’s bed that Miss 7 uses. This room is the bigger of the two and much cooler. Miss 7 happens to have the smallest and hottest room in the house.
