When we moved into this new house, we also told the girls they would be sharing a room. Martha and Louisa are closest in age so it makes sense for them to share, but whooo, chile. Martha, in particular, was NOT into it. She liked having her own room and needed some coaxing to get on board with a shared room after a couple years on her own at the old house.
There is nothing that makes me happier as a parent than seeing my kids independently engaged in something creative. Whether coloring quietly or doing chalk in the driveway or making sculptures with pipe cleaners, watching them use their imagination and problem solve through making is my happy place.
Another week, another update to our Dueling DIY! Sarah’s been hash-tagging left right and center hoping that no one will notice her lame updates. Bla bla bla… murphy bed. Bla bla bla… painting. Boring all of it. Frankly, I apologize that you fine people need to concern yourself with the state of her guest room. I’m sure you have showers to take, cheetos to eat, and Kardashians to tweet at.
