We decided not to paint this weekend, after all. Jonathan’s mom + stepdad are coming to visit next week, and it seemed like making them sleep in a room suffused with the delicate scent of latex paint would be impolite.
So we moved all of the stuff around to move Gus into his new room, instead. Or should I say half of the stuff. Man, do we have books! So many many many books. And the knicknacks, I have had it with them! The paddywacks can stay, though.
Pray tell me HOW do those of you out there in blagland with kids get through home improvement tasks? (Yes, I’m looking at you, Anne.) Gus still doesn’t love playing by himself, though we did get an hour or so when he was playing with his lego pirates and his dollhouse. The pirate captain slept in a huge bed balanced on a stack of furniture. Good for him!
Hopefully tomorrow will be better, when we will actually start moving things INTO his room. Then at least he can help with the arranging. And we will maybe begin to dig out from under the piles of books everywhere. If you haven’t heard from me by tomorrow night, send help!
