The Big Switch

With our two boys getting bigger and needing a bit more leg room, we switched our children's bedrooms around.  The size wasn't too much of a difference but the layout of Addy's original space made it easier to fit the guys ( and is so much cozier for stuff in her new room, preview soon) Molding still needs to be finished white but the majority of the final  touches were completed this  week. Here is what our big guys place looks like now.  
 They have more room for some of their bigger toys like the Lego table and still are able to roll around and do things boys do. Its nice to claim a bit of our own space back downstairs and this has significantly reduced the amount of pick up on the first floor during the day. 
Mom bonus. 
I absolutely love how it came out and the use of space is just so much more efficient in storage as well....  Plus its super cute!

This process has been so rewarding.  We have been able to really sort through what we have and get rid of so much stuff.  Every time a bag or box of 'stuff' leaves the house, I swear I can breathe easier.
( ...and could it be that Matt is strangely happier too ?)
We did the same thing with all the boys clothing, tossed and donated a ton and laundry has been getting easier by the minute.  Truth that the less you have, the less you have to do....in certain areas of life.

The boys love the change and so does Addy so that is what has thrilled me most.   It isn't a huge thing in the scheme of life but it was pretty enjoyable to work alongside the kiddos as we planned each paint change, do-dad and move together.  Its the little things, and change can sometimes be so refreshing.

( Addy's update coming soon....)
