For nearly a decade, my boys have been sharing a room. At first it was a necessity as our New York apartment where we lived when Sam was born was tiny. When we arrived in Dubai, they started in separate rooms. But when I invested in the Oeuf NYC bunk bed (which had been on my personal wish list for a long time) the boys happily chose their obvious bunk. Jack up – Sam down. They loved being together in the mornings and evenings and I can tell you, it made the bedtime routine easy for me.
School is out, the tree is up and I have already heard Mariah Carey on the radio a several times. There’s no denying it, Xmas 2015 has come.
As I hear Jack and Sam humming the songs of their winter concert, I think back of this time of year when I was their age. Although many things have changed (for sure did I not sing the theme song of Frozen), many things are the same. Like lazing around in pyjama’s, having no plan for the day and ending up being exhausted from all our activities and the home cooked festive dinners.
