And the best part of the living room, besides the apple tv that streams me American cartoons for my children when they decide at 2 in the morning that they are still on Mountain Standard Time... is the windows with no screens that open easily and so wide an adult person could easily step out of them and fall two stories to the ground. Obviously not awesome. I walked in to discover Kaylie sitting on the back of the couch one day near a window she had opened herself.
Panic. Hug Kaylie dearly. Rearrange furniture.
Our room. It has lots of great light, and a little view. We probably would have been okay with just the one bedroom since Jeff actually never sleeps...ever, and even if he is chances that both girls are also sleeping is slim. The best part if I open my window I can hear my neighbor...a profesionaly trained opera singer at all times of the day. That is not sacrasm, I love it. Somedays I will be just at home, listening to the screaming and crying of girlies, making lunches, washing clothes, and forget where I am ...and then I will hear her belting out italian solos, and I go oh...thats right...I am in some awesome place. And I appreciatively listen to her . And sadly all she gets in return for her performance is screaming and crying through her side of the paper thins.
The girls room. They are sharing a room better then I expected. Especcialy Audrey who has been in a playpen and has been doing mostly just fine. We were really unsure if there was a second bedroom becuase it was only listed that there was a single bed and a double bed in the apartment not that it had two bedrooms, but hallelujah just for the extra closet. Kaylie walked in and the first thing she said after she smacked her head on the shelf by her bed," was why are there nothing on the walls" and then by the next day had three of four coloring pages taped up to fix her problem.
It is not briarwood lane by any means, but we are definately more comfortable then we expected here. It is amazing how little you actually need. Well perhaps I will spring for a spatula.
