First Sleepover

For a while now, the girls have been asking if Becca can sleep in Bridget's room. I told them last week, that they could try it over the weekend.

I was not sure if this would work out because they sleep very different. Becca sleeps with a lamp on and doesn't like the dark. Bridget sleeps with a little night light. Becca sleeps in a quiet room, Bridget wants music playing. Becca wants the door open, Bridget wants hers closed. Becca sleeps ALL over the bed, Bridget doesn't move.

After talking about these differences, they still wanted to try it. Becca was happy to crawl up in Bridget's bed and sleep in there just as Bridget likes it. It went just perfect. They both slept peacefully. Not one complaint. So at bedtime last night, Becca went and curled up in Bridget's bed again.

For some reason I just don't think that I should let this to continue, but I'm not sure what that reason is. They both seem to find it comforting and are happy. Do you have any thoughts on this?

I plan on doing the same for my twins. At worst, you could get them side by side beds or bunk beds like schaun and I had. He can tell you how much fun we had. Aak about the "painting"

My sister and I changed rooms all the time growing up. I think it's normal and I would let them share while they want to. We were always switching rooms, changing to together, changing back to separate, until we moved out...!
