The kids didn't know that I was redoing their rooms. Well, they knew it was coming, but didn't know when. Jason picked them up and brought them back home and I made him swore not to tell them. Jordan walked in and said, "Jenna, did you finish our rooms yet?" I said, "Don't know, go look!"
I wish I had a better cameraphone because the moment he saw it turned out so blurry, but he was SO excited! He saw everything organized, his new bed, his desk. He immediately started playing with everything. And he loves that he has a TV all his own.
Sophia was ecstatic when we told her she was sharing a room with Avery. I mean, over the top, happy. So, when she saw her room, immediately she said, "Jenna, can I hold Avery on my bed?" Of course, I said, "YES!" Then. she pulled out books and started reading to her. Then, when Avery wasn't having that anymore, I put her in her Bumbo on the floor and Sophia started pulling out toys. She'd come out every so often and say, "Jenna, Avery burped twice!" Or I'd hear, "Avery, don't put that in your mouth!" (I can see them from the kitchen and Avery was trying to eat the book.) So cute. Once again, their room is not finished yet.
Once the kids got there and went to their rooms, they didn't want to come out! We were like, OK, what do we do now? We are so used to them pulling everything out to the living room and being completely cramped up. And then, the hard part. When they had to go back to their moms, they didn't want to leave. That usually happens when they get something new at our house. Soph went in their closet and I saw tears, "I want to stay here with Avery!" She sobbed. I told her, "I know sweetie, but you will be back and you can spend all weekend next weekend!" That's hard to watch.
What a good feeling last night was!! It's like we gained so much more room in our house. Good day!!!
