Not sure where to put this as there isn't a general parenting section! This will obviously be heavily dependent on the layout of everyones houses, but what are your plans about where you keep your kids stuff? Theakstons nursery is quite small, he has his cot, chest of drawers, and changing table and that's about all that will fit in there. At the moment the living room is over-run with his stuff, whilst our spare room is barely used as we never really have people to stay and our desk is redundant now we both have laptops. My plan was that when Theakston's older he will have his bed and clothes in his room, ornaments or whatever on his little shelves and that's it. His bedroom will literally be for sleeping & dressing. I was then going to put all his toys in the spare room and make him a playroom type thing. We have a TV in there so I would hook up his VSmile console thingie, when he's at school he could make use of the desk etc., it would be like what a bedroom is to most kids, minus the bed I'm just watching Jo Frosts extreme parenting thing about when kids should go to bed and stuff and they've been saying how kids avoid sleeping/pretend to go to bed and sit in their rooms playing on their games consoles or computers and so on and to take them away or keep them downstairs. This makes me feel like there's actually a fair argument for me space saving (lol) and was just wondering what everyone elses plans are? To me the idea of a 'playroom' has always sounded a bit posh and unnecessary but in our house it makes perfect sense with the room we have.
