Travel: An Opportunity to Try a Shared Room

Travel: An Opportunity to Try a Shared Room

My family loves to travel but I admit it comes with its fair share of inconveniences, especially when you have young children. Most of my travel anxiety involves food and sleep and how that gets messed up sometimes when you travel. But I've decided to take a glass-is-half-full approach for our remaining summer trips and see the sleep challenges, at least, as an opportunity. An opportunity for what you ask?

An opportunity to put the kids in the same room for naptime and at night. At home we've been thinking long and hard about having them share a room (our room, in fact). That process involves some renovation and redecorating, nothing we want to undertake unless we know our plan will work.

For our most recent trip, the kids shared a bedroom for the first time and things seemed to work well but the trip was a bit too short to really give us confidence. Our next two trips will be longer and the plan is to have them share a room again. I'll let you know how it goes.
