Bearing in mind we are yet to be linked - however we have started trying to sort out the house ready for our new potential arrival. We have 2 spare rooms - one is a large room containing a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and still has plenty of space. The other is a box room which we had been using as a study but is now empty.
Originally we were going to use the main spare room as the child's room, however we are now concerned this will feel a bit vast for a child when it's only got cot, baby stuff etc in there - will it be a bit intimidating?? The other room is ideal size for a cot, drawers, easy chair and would feel lovely and cosy.
Obviously some of this is age dependent, but we have been getting some thoughts from our LA about one child, under 12 months. If this was the case:
- would the smaller room be more welcoming
- would social workers think it's weird to have them in the smaller room rather than larger
- would it be wrong to start them in the smaller room then move them to the bigger room once they are older and need a bed etc
- am I obsessing unnecessarily?? I know it sounds petty but it kept me awake all night worrying about what to do for the best...
