Painting with a toddler

Have you ever tried to paint walls with a toddler? I don't recommend it. First, even if you try to make it a "educational experience" and let them try to paint, it is certain that they will only stay in the correct area of the wall for about 30 seconds. The trim or the floor is much more exciting to paint on. 

I would estimate that painting with a 2 year adds about 3x the time it would take doing alone.

Day off work to have a day to work

I took the day off today. But I still worked! 

I stripped all the wallpaper in the new kitchen and started painting one of the bedrooms. 

I got the Freshaire Paint they are selling at the Home Depot now. No VOC paint. Love it so far! Very little odor from it at all, and the paint seems to go on really well. I like the fact that I can paint and not worry about the fumes for me or my kiddo. Also, it is better for the environment. They also use recyclable cans and paint chips. Nice. 

Tomorrow: more painting!

So we have a new house

So we have a new house! I am excited about getting Emmett's room together. I have just bought him a new quilt with choo choos on it. And he has just inherited a nice bunk big boy bed set. I figure I have to do all I can to make it appealing to him with cool bedding! I will also be getting new stuff for his playroom. I hope that he is excited about his new house and that the transition goes well.
