My sister and I shared a bedroom until I was 10 years old. I distinctly remember writing a letter (in magic marker--but in a very authoritative green magic marker) to my parents, enumerating the reasons why it was time for me to have my own room. I wonder if my parents still have the letter because I would love to know what some of my big concerns were. In retrospect, I loved sharing a room with Par. With the imminent arrival of my third baby and no plans to expand our home or move anytime in the near future, it is an absolute certainty that my three monsters will be sharing a room for some amount of time. And I'm almost jealous of them, and the closeness the proximity will breed. In thinking about this, I found myself wondering whether sharing a room was at all Indian? Did you guys share a room with your siblings? Will your kids share a room?
I came across this OhDeeDoh spread on creative ways to design shared rooms and I got even more jealous--how cool are some of these rooms?
