Well, the girls have been sleeping together for the past two weeks--pretty nicely, I must add. When I tried this before, Anna Grace was taking naps in Pre-K and could not fall asleep easily. Therefore, she kept Abby up way too late. It was a disaster.
Fast forward to summertime. Neither girl is taking a nap (see Abby's comments in the post below!) so are pretty worn out at bedtime. They've been going to bed really well.
So today I decided to officially move Abby out of her room to make that room a playroom. I left Abby's bed in the room but not on the bedframe so it wouldn't take up so much space. All the toys are now in the playroom; the girls only have beds, dressers, and bookshelves in their room. They were pretty excited. I love having all the toys in one space where I can close the door and not see the mess. :-)
I'm hoping that once school starts the good sleeping habits will continue. With Anna Grace starting kindergarten, she'll have a short rest time daily (25 minutes or so) but I doubt she'll fall asleep. That should still make for a good bedtiime for her. Keep your fingers crossed!
