Happy Mother's Day! (belated)

Happy Mother's Day to all of you beautiful ladies!  Happy Fur Mother's Day to all of you beautiful ladies!

I was not in any mood to type up a post yesterday. I came home and the house was a wreck. Had to chase after my oldest to do the dishwasher. He said he did. Sure he did if you count 1 cup. Meanwhile, stuff was stacking up in the sink and on the counters. Stuff out of his former room mind you.

Last Wednesday I saw an ad on facebook for a purple twin loft bed. I sent my brother a message saying that I would pay for it if he would pick it up for me. It was in the next town north and he has a truck and a trailer. He was able to go pick it up that same day after work and drop it off here.

Well, the boys sleep on a bunk bed frame that has been cut in half. They share a room but since pumpkin sleeps with me half the time and the boys are always fighting we decided to split them up. We moved the middle kiddo's bed to pumpkin's room weekend before last. This past weekend we realized there is no way basically that two bunk beds would fit in her room. The room the boys shared was larger so a room swap happened.

The set up of the loft bed happened Saturday with help from my brother. We basically had to screw the frame together because a bunch of the bits and bobs didn't transfer well.

Also picked up some new blinds because pumpkin likes to look out the windows and just pries the slats apart willy nilly. Have you seen the cordless style blinds that they make now? I must be living under a rock because I had no. idea. They are so very cool and worth the money I feel.

Middle kiddo was using the top part of the bunk while the oldest was on the bottom. We left the frames in the rooms they were in and just swapped the mattresses. We didn't want to have to take off the door frames again. That is the only way the door jams are wide enough.

I will add pictures. Try not the judge the wall decor. My middle was a wall decorator and we have not repainted yet since pumpkin will probably follow in his footsteps. If you look at the slide on the purple bed she already did with sugar-free kool-aid water packets that middle boy will be scrubbing off today.

This is why the house was wrecked. Husband spent the day finishing up the room swaps. The sad part is we already took 3 full bags of toys and junk out of her old room 2 weeks ago and took bins of toys to Poppa's house. Do you see all those toys and stuffed animals? Love me some hand me downs!

The last thing I had my brother do is add some hooks to our hallway. I wanted a command station but wanted to do it on the cheap. I am happy with the way it turned out. That will be a future post. :)

PS: This is my makeup Mother's Day. I only worked 2 hours then got to come home to a quiet house today. Kids are at school and pumpkin at Poppa's house. Hubby is home sick but he is sleeping so I am pretending to be home alone.
