I spent all weekend washing them up. Her house is cleaner than mine but something was making me sneeze. Their dog? The laundry soap? Not sure. Plus I know some had been stored for awhile. AND washing baby clothes and getting them all ready is one of my very favorite things to do! After sorting and washing and weeding out some with stains, (very, very few. These clothes were in GREAT shape!), this is what we were left with:
|Wow!! These are mostly 0-18 months!|
Now, about The Room Schizo. New readers, I am that schizo.
My name is Brenda and I am a room re-arranger.
But this time I have a really good reason!!
We aren't really going to have a nursery for this little one. For Christmas I asked S to paint our room (where the baby will be sleeping for a long time). So he's going to do that next week. I can't exactly help with that room too much, so I'm turning my attention to the girls' rooms. Two reasons:
1. To show them that we love them and care about how their rooms look. That we aren't JUST getting things nice for the baby.
2. Sweetheart asked for her room to "match better" a few weeks ago.
3. The baby will eventually share a room with Little Bit (our former homeschool room) so some changes need to be made in there to make space.
So, yesterday I made a plan for each room. It's not going to be an expensive project by any means. The biggest expense will be new rugs for their rooms. The ones they have in there are 5 years old and pretty gross. Other than that, it will just be sewing, hanging things on the walls, and rearranging. Oh, and a dresser for Little Bit. Gotta visit the thrift stores!
Oh, and organizing Little Bit's closet to make room for baby. (And all these tubs that are stacked in the hall!) Her closet is really big so there should be plenty of room. Once I get rid of a lot of crap.
After I shared the plan with Sweetheart, she immediately got up from her bed where we were sitting and started cleaning her room. Fifteen minutes later she was done. THAT, my friends, is a world record. So...I'm thinking she liked the plan!
I threw supper in the crock pot this morning so I can work uninterrupted in the closet today.
If I get stuck, I'll send a distress signal or something.
