Poppy: Mommy! Guess what Grandma got me? She got me … what did you call the Danimals crush cups?
Me, after a bit of pondering: A gimmick?
P: Yes! Grandma got me gimmick macaroni. It’s Scooby-Doo!
We went ahead with the plan to move the kids into one room, and so far it’s working out well. Petey took a very long nap in his “big boy bed” yesterday, and they both slept well last night — after a good bit of giggling and small talk. They were up rather early this morning, but Rockford redirected their attentions from our bed to the new playroom. I’m going to get a “here’s when you can get up” clock for their bedroom, because I suspect that they won’t be sleeping in late all that often anymore, what with a little cohort nearby to encourage them to get up and going.
Right now there are four small bookshelves holding the toys and books in the playroom. I have my eye on a few pieces of furniture from Ikea so I can consolidate things a little more. I’m hoping to be able to get the space much more organized by August, when it’s going to be doing double-duty as the playroom and the schoolroom.
