If you're a Mom, I know you've had those days when you wonder why you bother? It seems every time you turn around, there is another mess to clean up, another load of laundry to do, another meal to cook, another pile of dishes, more homework to help with, etc etc. It seems never ending.
And then one day, your 5 year old leaves an envelope on your dresser. And this is what is inside:

For those who don't read 5 year old, it says : I LOF (love) MOM. And she wrote it all by herself. Brought a tear to my eye, let me tell you. And made all the laundry, cooking, cleaning etc worth while again.

This was the scene the other day in our family room. They were chatting away while Amanda played on Webkinz and Natalie played with her hair. I love when they get along like this...

Speaking of the family room, stay tuned for renovation pictures and news! Tomorrow is demo day! Finally getting rid of that carpet.... yay!

And the wood panelling? Do you have it all planned out already?

And then Tim can move into his own room, or has he done that already?

And that was a nice note. Very thoughtful of her.

No, we are doing Tim's room at the same time. There is very little to no insulation down here, so we are framing up new walls overtop of what's there.

Stuart said...

Cool...although that means that the room will be a little smaller. But since he's in it himself, he probably won't mind!

Are you insulating between his room and the rec room for noise?
