The Great Experiment...

It has been our intention for Katie and Julie to share a room. At least for a few years. We have enough folks staying with us from time to time that having a real guest room is a really good thing. And I believe that having them share the room should encourage them to share other things, too.

Katie reeeeeaaaallly doesn't like sleeping alone. She has been asking for Julie to come and sleep in her room since Julie rejected the crib.

We tried a couple of times, unsuccessfully, to get Julie to sleep in Katie's room.
Tonight, we're trying again.

I got Julie to sleep in her room and brought her into Katie's and put her in the upper bunk. (It has a deep lip. Julie is more likely to fall out of the lower bunk.)
Katie was so wound up I think she was vibrating, but she remembered that we told her she had to be quiet and not wake Julie.

It has been half an hour now and so far, so good.

I'm a little worried about morning. The blinds in Katie's room are not as dark as the shades in Julie's room. We'll see if she sleeps past sunrise.
