  1. The NYT has a good piece on kids sharing rooms in the real estate section, which maybe I liked because my kids will have share a room so reading about how it’s a good thing made me feel better about the whole thing. They also did a cute story in the style section about pregnancy overalls, which to be totally honest made me a bit sad to not be pregnant right now because it really is a cute look!

    Thanks for sharing! My kids share rooms and will likely until they go to college – 4 kids in a 3BR condo. We have a 15 y/o and a 12 y/o in one room, and 6 y/o twins in another. They are all boys, so that makes it a bit easier.
