Summer Reckoning: 43 days remaining
Morning everyone! I am still learning the ins and outs of WordPress so please bear with me and any weirdness going on with the blog.
Yesterday, we started moving everyone’s rooms around in our house. When we bought this home just over a year ago, I knew that my 3 children would be sharing a room for a while. It’s a two level home with two bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs directly below the upstairs bedrooms. Well, we decided to moved into the master bedroom and put the 3 kids in the room right across from us on the top floor, with the hope that our son(7) would want his own room and area downstairs sometime soon. Um, yeah right. I don’t know what we were thinking. Maybe when he’s a teenager or something, but that fellow wants no part of being downstairs by himself….and I really can’t blame him. I don’t think I would want to be down there alone either. Sooooo, in an effort to give my boy his own room and my girls actual space to put their girly toys IN their room and be able to play, Kris and I are giving up the large master bedroom and moving downstairs to a much smaller room. The girls will share the master and Aidan is getting his own room. They have no concerns about us moving downstairs (although I do!) as long as they are together. Needless to say, our home is a wreck and I feel like I am moving into a new house AGAIN. To say that I have concerns about sleeping on a different floor than my children would be the understatement of the year. But, a baby monitor will be communicating any noises going about up there and we can hear any footstep directly above our heads. Anyone out there have the master on a different floor as your kids? Is it working for you? Any pearls of wisdom for this nervous Mama?!
I love the sweet smell of dawn –
our unique daily opportunity to smell time,
to smell opportunity –
each morning being, a new beginning.
