Oldest is having issues with sleeping upstairs lately. He goes thru spells where he just would rather be down here with The Hubster and me. Now is one of those spells. I have debated on wether or not to just move the boys downstairs and then put the guest room upstairs but that would involve redoing two bedrooms and two baths. The guest room is much much smaller and so it would be a tight fit for the boys especially once they get older. I know they will want back upstairs so upstairs is where they will be staying.
So what do I do to try and get them to stay up there every night? I lay down with them till they fall asleep which usually is within 10-15 minutes. I figure they will be grown and gone way too soon so I cherish every moment I have with them at night.
Well last night Oldest popped back up while I was mulling around in the sewing room. How did I get him to go back to bed at 11:30 at night?
|I started on this! Yes, I started on making curtains for our landing so Oldest would go back to bed. See my sewing room is in plain site of the boys room so I promised him I would stay in there and work. It worked and thus so did I till almost 1 am!|
|I am in the midst of transforming this valance.|
|I was inspired in part by this.|
|This is what we worked on today for 6 hours straight! The foyer is finally ripped out.|
