Right now the girls share, Josiah has his own room and Isaiah is in our room. The boys will share eventually but right now the baby still wakes at night and Josiah's a light sleeper so we're waiting. Our girls room is big enough where I would have been able to put another in there too, the boys room is much smaller and will barely hold anything other than a bunk bed once we get to that lol. We're also moving in the next few years and even then, I plan that our kids will always share rooms

We have 4 right now. What we have done is we have 5 bedrooms, one is a toy room for all toys, one is the boys' rooms and they sleep on a king size bed, and one is a guest room, and one is empty lol. The baby sleeps in her crib in the Master. My kids aren't willing to sleep in their own rooms. So..if this one is a boy I guess we'll get two bunk beds some time down the road and if a girl then it's perfect for our girl she'll have a little sister near her age and they'll share a room. Then we have a king size bed ourselves because the others at any given time just come piling into our bed.. so that's our story.
We have a 6 bedroom home, but 1 room is used as our office and 1 is used as a guest room. We have our 2 oldest girls in a room downstairs, and DS is in a room across from them downstairs. The 2 little girls are upstairs. I've been debating on what to do when the baby comes--s/he will be in our room for the first while, then in to the crib. I have to decide whether or not to let our oldest DD move into the guest room or let her continue to share. I think it is good for them to share--to learn how to respect other's things and be respectful of privacy and such. We also have a toy room downstairs--and it's wonderful! We only keep a few toys upstairs.
My two oldest, Kevin and Joey (ages 15 and 10) share a room - they have bunk beds. My twins, Daisy and Annabelle (age 7), have bunk beds and share a room with Lilah (age 5). Luckily, they have a large bedroom that accommodates three kids. Finn has had his own room - the smallest bedroom in our house, but we will have no choice but to put Scarlett in with him when she moves out of our room in a few months. I'm not crazy about this arrangement, but there's really no way around it for us.
No idea what we will do when this baby is ready to move out of our room... I expect it will be another year or so, though, so I'm not going to stress about it yet! Maybe by then DD and DS2 will be in bunk beds and we can fit the 3 of them in one room on the same floor as us... But maybe we'll just have to play musical bedrooms and move us downstairs and take over the fireplace/livingroom/guestroom, and spread the kids out upstairs!
Not worrying about it right now!
