Two Babies

What I was planning to do is to share some before pictures of our downstairs bathroom that I'd like to set on fire lovingly remodel soon.  But wait!  Look at how sweet my babies are!  Nom nom nom.

 I promised myself I would keep blogging even if I didn't have anything interesting enough to say, but then...I couldn't think of anything interesting enough to say.

Womp womp.

Two minutes I picked up my phone to instagram the book I'm reading and I was like "okay, I can just blog this!  I can just do it as if it's my blog and I can just post whatever lame thing I want!"

The last day of my 12 day posting streak has arrived!  Since it has literally been a year this month since I finished sprucing it up, I felt like it was juuuuuuust about time I did a before/after of the small bedroom upstairs, which the two boys currently share, even though I haven't managed to get good pictures of it Blog Reveal Clean.  If it hasn't happened yet, I guess it's never gonna happen, huh?  So you're gonna get photos of unmade beds and clothes spilling out of bins.  It hurts a little, I'll be honest.

It is a tiny room, but it's cozy and loved by all despite (because of?) its quirkiness.

Here is the photo that was in the original real estate listing we saw for the house.  The wide-angle lens makes you think it's some kind of normal size but really, no.  It is itty bitty.

Interview question nine:

"Are there tasks/chores that your kids have entirely overtaken? Have you ever had to deal with a kid who goes into slow motion when it's time to do chores, and if so, how do you deal with that? Not that I've ever had a five-year-old who does that to me ten times a day."

Yes yes yes!  I mean, if they're not home for one reason or another, we will still do them, but here are things I generally don't do anymore:

House Fixin'

Interview question eight:

"Speaking of the house, how much work have you done? How much more do you plan to do? Where do you get the biggest bang for your buck? Any ideas that have ended up in the "fail" category?"

Lucky for all of you (and by "you" of course I mean "me" because I already did all that hunt and paste work.  Boomshakalaka), I sort of answered this the other day, so I'll start with a few of the same before and after post links:

I'm going to take a break from the interview questions today because my brain is taaaaaaaahrd.  But I swore to myself and to y'all that I would post every day for 12 days, so I'm doin' it!  Imma just tell you about my day, bloggy style.

Today was Tommy's first day back at work since the 23rd. We've started back to school. And the gloom factor outdoors was set at level 11. So predictably, of course, yes you guessed it, our refrigerator was bare-bones empty.  Like, me randomly eating sautéed mushrooms dipped in jarred spaghetti sauce for lunch  empty.

Interview question seven:

"How do Christmas festivities now, with seven kids, compare to those you had when you just had a few littles? Any ideas or advice for parents who haven't set their traditions in stone?"
