This weekend, we moved Jaden into his own room. Our two boys had been sharing a room for the last 3 1/2 years, as I had been using the third bedroom in our three-bedroom home as my home office. However, for the past several months I was hardly using that office to work out of - choosing to work mostly from the living room, the kitchen table or the back deck - and that office space of mine was starting to become more of a drop-zone than anything else. It was starting to give me a little bit of anxiety that a whole bedroom in our house was being wasted, so we made the decision to take down the bunk beds and give Jaden his own space.
And now after three nights of sleeping in their own beds, in their own rooms, the results are pretty fabulous! Sunday morning they both slept in until 8:30, and here we are on a Tuesday morning at 8:00, on vacation, and Jaden slept in until 7:30, currently downstairs watching the late Tampa Bay football game from last night that Daddy recorded for him, while Brandon remains sleeping! In fact, Brandon woke up at 6:30 this morning to go to the bathroom and put himself back to bed! Not a bad way to start off vacation.
Speaking of vacation, I'm looking forward to spending the next several days with these sillies. It's been a whirlwind two months with a job promotion, housing decisions and a busy summer. I have been needing this week to turn off the alarm clock, ignore the constant work emails and plan some time to cross those final items off our summer bucket list.
Have a good week!
