Who would have thought that the transition from two boys to three would be so tough?
Between the diaper changes, fussy teething, and the competition over who's going to sit in my arms, the only 5 minutes I've had to myself today was when I sat down to write the post, when blessedly, the two babies were napping (at the same time! Can you believe it?) and Soren was watching The Magic School Bus.
Things are a-shambles around the house, between the finishing touches in the kitchen before the Maytag appliances arrive on Monday (I was chosen to be a Maytag Kitchen Ambassador, which I'm really excited about).
There are so many half-finished projects and thoughts around here, things that get started then dropped when one of the kids is in need of something, whether nourishment or comfort or entertainment.
I finished up the tiled backsplash this past week, in between naps and in the evenings. I just have to give it a good cleaning to remove any haze and residue. I'm happy how it turned out, especially that it was my first attempt at tiling.
And as someone who is constantly in need of a project, I have about 5 of them going on right now, including finishing this chalkboard wall at the top of the steps.
I imagine Soren will like to have this place to express himself, at least in a containable way. And hopefully not with snuck-in crayons.
And of course, there are just the random things that we don't get to, like moving air conditioners to the attic.
Happy weekend! Hope you can check a few things off your list.
