Friends just bought a new house with master bedroom down all others upstairs. Master has 2 big walk-in closets one has a window. They have a new baby and plan on making windowed closet a nursery. Her mother is appalled at the idea.

I would not buy a house unless all bedrooms were on the same floor!

My closet now is damn near bigger than the room I grew up in. Do it

I think it's extremely smart, though I wouldn't even buy a home like that as a parent. My daughter is 4 and I wouldn't want her upstairs with me downstairs now. I would worry about fires, her falling at night, etc. But I'm a worrier!

Sheesh! It's a step away from co-sleeping. Guessing the Gma would be fine with letting the wee one wail away upstairs. Gma needs to settle down.

There is nothing whatever wrong with that idea. I think it's great! Who wants to have to trudge upstairs in the middle of the night to change a diaper?

Her mother doesn't live there so her opinion doesn't matter.

True, but even if she did live there, her opinion wouldn't count. It's their baby.

Oh yes, completely. No matter the circumstances, her opinion doesn't count.

Is she afraid the kid is going to turn into Carrie or Harry Potter? I think it's a good idea.

It's called a closet because some put it on the building plans. It's whatever the couple wants it to be. For the first couple of years, it is a good idea. Tell Grandma to think creative, praise Mom and Dad for the great idea to keep the infant close.

I am confused. What is wrong with that idea?

Her mother is hung up on the idea of grand child in a closet. More concerned about looks instead of practically

Well, that just seems silly. I call it creative and whatever works for them!
