Hey there! I have a 12 year old and 8 year old (and of course little one due on 12/6). We have three bedrooms upstairs and built out a fourth bedroom and living space in the basement a couple years ago.

I would ask him what he wants to do. If he says yes then go ahead and let him move. If he says maybe, then I would suggest a trial move.

I don't know if I could do it. Any chances of the kids rooming together? Or you and DH moving down there with a 2 way intercom?

I have thought about us moving downstairs but that's just going to be practical with the baby being upstairs. I like to relay on my Mommy hearing more than a monitor :)

Well, we had the perfect opportunity to give it a try last night.
