Still in time to wish everyone a Happy Prosperous Goat Year!
New year, new beginnings! We took the extra long weekend opportunity to move into our new place for real, after doing some minor works to it. The kids and us love that we have our very own (smaller) space. Can’t say the same for the cleaning up bit though!
They really enjoy packing their toys into their little suitcases when we tell them we are headed to the new place for stay-overs now.
After co-sleeping with the kids in one way or another since day one, I had trouble adjusting to them sleeping in another bedroom away from me! That said, I’m pleased to report that the cub is coping well to sleeping in his own bed while the lil’ dragonlady comes looking for me once or twice in the night. Depending on what time she pops over, I would bring her back to their bedroom or let her sleep with us.
Now that we have our own kitchen, I love that we get to prepare meals ourselves (ok, mostly the husb doing the work for now!) and have our quality time together at the dining table. It’s something simple but we don’t get to do that much here at my parents’. On working days, the kids are usually having dinner or done with dinner by the time I get home from work. On weekends, we usually head out and have our meals settled before going home. Not the best situation but we make do with whatever help we can get!
At the new place, the kids get to go for dips and water play every now and then in between their play time, nap time and TV time! They are totally living it up!
So thankful to have our own space to call home now. 🙂
