Are you thinking of moving your kids into the same room? Or maybe siblings are already sharing a room and you’re looking to make things run a little smoother? I’m sharing lots of tips for siblings sharing a room along with how we transitioned our boy and girl into a shared room as toddlers.

We are still getting adjusted back to our Eastern Time Zone (which is absurd because we landed back in the states a week ago) and Ben was fast asleep by 8 pm last night. I am still working my way through all of our Greece photos but in the meantime, I wanted to share some summer staples that I packed and have been wearing on repeat this month.
The perfect summer tee shirt dress
The other month I was running to the grocery store up in New Hampshire with the kids in the back seat when I spotted a fire engine driving past. It’s sirens were off and I pointed it out to Lincoln who was strapped into his carseat directly behind me.
Following instructions quickly is still something we’re working on so by the time Lincoln looked out the window, the fire truck had sped on past and there was a small red car next to ours instead.
“Silly Mom, that’s a car. Fire trucks are BIG!”
“Silly Mom, fire trucks have ladders.”
We’ve relived this a few times since then and every time I start the story he interrupts and finishes it, “It was NOT a fire truck. It was a car. Silly mom, fire trucks are BIG! They have ladders!”
So, to prove, despite his lack of confidence, that I do actually know what a fire truck looks like, we joined some friends at the end of the semester for a tour of the Cambridge Fire Station. It is just a fifteen minute walk from campus (although I got lost coming home and it turned into a solid 1:05 minute walk).
Lincoln and Adelaide both loved getting to sit up in the fire engine and steer the wheel but they were both a little too shy to talk to the kind fireman.
The fireman mentioned that whenever the doors were open we were welcome to come in and say hi, and as long as they didn’t get pulled away on a call, they’d be happy to show the kids the fire trucks.
Tip: Did you know most fire stations will let you schedule a visit for free? And most of them have a similar stop-in policy. Just google your local fire station and see what it says on their website
