A glimpse

Have you ever had something that seemed so insignificant but somehow managed to CONSUME your every thought at random times in the middle of the night? If so... whew, good to know I am not alone. If not... then I want to be like you when I grow up.

My most recent obsession = girl room

We are currently living in a three bedroom home which means that two of my children will be sharing a room until we upgrade hopefully later this year. Even then, they still might share a room, who knows. The big conversation has been between which children to bunk together. Personally, I was really leaning towards Molly and Gabriel sharing a room because of their similar schedules, shared toys, constant playmates, etc. It made the most sense to me. My other half though quickly reminded me that they also benefit from having their own space from each other or quite honestly, we benefit from their occasional space from each other. They seem to choose to play together so much more when they aren't forced to by proximity.

At the end of the day, our decision had become to bunk the girls together. There was an added benefit of Molly in school 5 days a week in the fall which will allow Lucy a nice nap space so really, everyone wins. We hope.

Our only problem has been the furniture debacle. Molly is currently in a full-sized bed and Lucy has her massive changing table, glider and crib that we were adding to the bunch. The bedroom looked like a furniture store. No matter how we arranged the room (and by we of course I mean, Kelly) it still didn't look right.

Enter obsession.

So tonight, when I asked Kelly to move it all around one more time you can guess the joyful smile he sent my direction. When I told him I was really convinced this was going to be "it", he caved. Lucky for him... it was. FINALLY, everything is as it should be... for now. The bunk beds come in this weekend and have to be painted, the glider still needs to be recovered, the letters put back on the wall and the crib bedding set up (can you just envision the list?)...

So for now- a glimpse. From the doorway. I promise there are more pictures to come soon.

I am looking soooo forward to an obsession free night's sleep. Here's hoping!
