How do you work out the logistics?
Our children will need to share a bedroom (2 per room) which is just over 3x3 - so not huge rooms. Bunks aren't an option because we rely on overhead fans to keep our powerbills down.
What age does boy/girl sharing become an issue? Our 6yr girl/4yr boy will be sharing and depending on the sex of the baby, it is our intention for the two babies (15mths apart) to share for a couple of years.
Our fourth room will be taken by the au pair - we need the assistance for the school drop offs etc as our town doesn't have facilities for before/after school care, and I can't work school hours - and hubby also works long hours - it's not easy finding a part time job for a bloke that will cover the daycare bill and I don't get paid enough for our family to live off without making drastic changes (like cancelling our insurances which I'm not comfortable with).
