The past few nights have been long, or short. But I'm not sure where a night where it is past midnight and you are up for at least two hours in a row makes it long or short. The only night that I can say has gone well since the two have moved into one room together, was the first. The first night (Sunday) Aidan slept til 6:30 am. Since then, he's woken up at 3, or 4, and it takes almost an hour and a half to get him to re-settle. The only one getting better with this adjustment is Grace. Since having Aidan in her room, she no longer wants to have her door open at night, and if I bring her during one of the awake episodes in to sleep with me, she cries. She wants her brother. She has learned not to speak with him when he gets up, and to try and keep sleeping. I pray Aidan will learn too. He will. He has to. He will.
Ive been trying to think of a clever way to show you the room prep, and the finished result. But given it is Thursday and the room has been ready since Sunday, I figure I should just show you and forget the clever.
I'm not sure what was more exciting for the kids. St. Patty's Day and the hope of leprechauns, or their Papa heading our way, with the promise of treats.
For Aidan, definitely the treats. The boy loves a vanilla steamer.
The last photo in the pink room. You can see Grace's room here.
Don't panic. I put alot of thought into whether I should, or shouldn't be painting a room. We were using a Benjamin Moore VOC compliant. My Dad did the rolling, I did the trim. This ensured I got lots of breaks from the room.
Tomorrow I'll reveal the finished room :)
Today: Making three dozen muffins for Nate to bring into work tomorrow. Given my desire to not go into the snow, they will be oatmeal muffins. Things I have on hand. I'm going to excite them up a bit with blueberries, some with raisins, and some with cinnamon.
Have a lovely Thursday everyone.
