change is a comin'

today is emily's last day of school.  i have to say, i'm glad i will have her home for two weeks, but at the same time, i know that there will be plenty of tears.  she loves to be at school.  she does not love being home with her brother.  things have been slowly improving between the two of them...which is wonderful, but we've got a little more work to do before i'll say we're through this "phase"--if you can even call it that.  

i have mentioned before that david has been sharing our room with us. yes, he's now just over 2 years old.   yes, hubs and i have a very minimal love life. yes, it has sucked.

we only have a two bedroom home.  there is a screened in porch(where most of the kids' toys are, and where david loves to play when its raining) that we have talked about turning into a third bedroom for us.  however, we just can not afford to do this right now.  its time to bite the bullet and get this kid out of our room though!!  starting tomorrow, david and emily will be room mates.  we figured there is no better time than her two week break to get them accustomed to sleeping in the same room.   we'll establish a new bed time routine.  emily will be sleeping over grandma and grandpa's house for a few nights, so it will give david some time to adjust to his new surroundings.  we were calling this a "trial run", but really, this is it...david needs to be out of our room!  i think they will be just fine.  i also think that this may be what emily needs to get through her emotions with david.

i'm nervous but excited at the same time!!  i can turn on a light without waking david up.  i can watch tv with the volume ON.  i won't have to pick out my clothes the night before.   and the best part is, of course, being able to get some nookie any time i want it!! :oD

when emily is on her next break in august, we'll paint "their" room!  come one, poor david is already using emily's old car seat--that is covered in flowers.  i can't make him sleep in a pink room too!!

wish us luck!!

  1. Oh my gosh, you two will feel like newlyweds all grown up in your own room! Good luck!

    I wonder if you could decorate the room half and half, so each child feels like they have their own space?

  2. Having your own room is such an exciting thing! I can't wait to send my little one into her own room. I hope everything runs smoothly with the "trial run."

  3. Good luck! I can't imagine that and I hope things go well!!!

  4. Good luck! I really hope it works out as smoothly as possible! I'm glad there are a few days where she's at G&G's to help.

  5. i just wanted to let you know how much i enjoy your blog and that i gave it a double award over at mine!
