All I can think about lately is creating a new space for the baby, for the boys, for G and I and the logistics of how to make it all happen in our modest three bedroom home. I am more than grateful for this house that we have but it still presents a puzzle of space in our shifting family dynamic. We've gone over all the possible room change and reorganizing scenarios. Currently the boys share the smallest bedroom, the "master" room (sans master bathroom) is our office, music room, guest room, catch-all, and G and I are in the medium sized bedroom. For a long while we thought the boys should move into the office so they could have the most space and we could house the majority of toys in there too and then the baby could take their old room. But I might have had an epiphany this morning when all chaos was reigning down as we all tried to get out the door with Augie smashing his fingers in the front door, Liam demanding to take his stuffed bunny outside to play with in the dirt, and G going back and forth from our room and the office because his closet space is in limbo while I stood in our room waiting for everyone to LEAVE so I could get dressed already! I think G and I need the bigger room. I need SPACE! (can you see it in the faraway look in my eyes?)
How have you all worked out space issues in your own homes? Have any great toy storage tips? I do know one thing - we have to liquidate a lot of stuff ASAP.
Anyway, hopefully I'll have some exciting baby news for you next week.... Wishing you a happy weekend!
