We have had a full bus for the last few weeks….there are seven of us sleeping in a Motorhome when really its only meant for four! Yep There Were Seven in the Bed And The Little One Said Don’t Move!
Sleeping In Is Not Going To Happen
If one of us moves, then nearly all of us are awake….its that simple! If we move about while we any of our boys are asleep in our Motorhome then we guaranteed to wake them up. Yep we have a queensize bed for David and I plus the bunk beds. Our older son returned home from the navy so we had to make more bed space.
Our Oldest Son is using our bed for watching a DVD on his Computer!
We tried to have our baby in our bed. But seen as how Kyle is seven years old and is nearly as big as me, that wasnt going to work. I never realised how much a child could move in bed and accidently roll over and hurt one of us 🙂
Our youngest Son Kyle sleeping on a air mattress!
Our oldest is sleeping in Kyle’s bed. Kyle is now on a air mattress. Nicholas is still on top bunk. Zac and Cameron are still sleeping on the lounges. We still need to make a trailer with bunk beds for our older two boys!
Nicholas sleeping on top bunk!
Its very tight, and we all have to remember each others feelings over the lack of space but for the short time frame its working.
Cameron sleeping on one lounge 🙂
I keep on thinking about families who had three generations all living in two bedroom homes. Or even families who are living (this very moment – today) in one house together because they can’t afford to live in separate houses. Then there are those families who choose to all live together so that the Grandparents can be looked after, or the Grandparents can look after the Grandchildren so that the parents can work.
Our son Zachery – never realised till now that he actually sleeps with his gun!
We are very fortunate to have a roof over our head. Warm places to snuggle down into beds and our Motorhome on wheels. It might not be ideal for every family but for us its working. Yet I wouldnt like to have to have our youngest sleeping on a air mattress long term. Its too hard for David to walk around without walking on top of him. Or one of his brothers forgetting that he is there and standing on him in the middle of the night!
There Were Seven In The Bed And The Little One Said – shh…please be quiet!
Have you ever had to share bedding arrangements before?
