The acquisition of Jon's company is complete and he officially starts working for Big Blue on April 1. He will be working from home full-time and we still don't know how much his travel will increase or decrease. We've decided that sharing the bonus room over our one-car garage as a joint office is not maintainable for the long haul so we have to make some changes. (For those that don't know, I also telecommute full time.)
We have moved Nate back in with Alex. We're hoping to use the guest room as a combination guest room and office for Jon. We're nervous about this as previous attempts to move them back together have been disastrous. Last night was Day One and there was no fighting, but they played until 10:30 when I went in and patted their backs until they quieted down. The other issue is on day care days, they nap but they do not need a nap, so they are genuinely not tired until 9PM or later.
Does anyone have any tips for getting kids this young to successfully share a room? We're considering leaving a small light on to let them play and going in to turn it off to signal it is quiet time. Tips and encouragement are very welcome, particularly encouragement!
