The Merger

This weekend we are going to be moving Roanen's bed into Josey's room and having them share. The original idea was to leave everything as it was with the boys and set up the crib for the baby in Josey's room, since there's a little crib-sized cutout in the wall, but Josey tends to fool around way to much and make a lot of noise if he's not quite sleepy enough, so we axed that idea. Then we thought we'd move his bed into Roanen's room so they could share that one. We were going to paint the room and put up a border exactly like Josey's room at the old house (because I loved that room and only got to enjoy it for less than a year before we sold the house) and leave the fish room as is for the baby because it can be used for a girl or a boy. Being all pregnancy hormonal, it really bothered me that we were taking Josey out of his room, so I decided, despite it being a little less conducive to 2 beds (not that it's not big enough, but one whole wall is taken up by built-in bookshelves) that we would move Roanen in with him. There will have to be a few changes, like getting Josey a little light for under his bed canopy so he can read before bed without the main light on, as it usually is, and putting some of the larger items in the room into the other bedroom, but I don't think it will work out too badly. I think they'll adjust pretty well, although I'm guessing that there will be some punishments doled out to Josey for waking Roanen up with his silliness. Overall I'm not too thrilled about the idea, since I'm still resentful of having to do this now, rather than in a couple of years when we were originally planning on having another baby, but it's probably just my whacked-out hormones not enjoying change.
On a more fun note, Adventures in Babywearing is having another contest, to win a handy diaper purse from Strollermama that has a built-in wipe holder. It's called "My Royal Heinie". Hee hee. Since I'm in the market for a new diaper bag (my 4th in 4 years thank you very much), this would be an awesome addition so I don't have to dig around through extra clothes, plastic bags, and unrecognizable food items for an elusive diaper, as usually happens. Good luck to me!
