Just a Little Crazy

Lily can get pretty wild at times...but she sure is a cutie!

Off to School

My Little Man is off to school! Eric is going to Pre K. The class that he is in is Mon-Fri from 8am-2! It's been really crazy this week having Eric gone for most of the day. Lily has cried everyday when Eric walks into his classroom leaving her behind. She wants to go too- and tells me that everyday when I tell Eric it's time to get ready for school. So far Eric loves School! The other day when I picked him up from school the poor guy looked like he was so tired he was going to drop before we made it to the car! I thought oh good- he'll take a nap when we get home but no- he got his second wind instead. There is only about 20 parking spots at the school so we walk. On the first day of school Eric wouldn't let me carry anything for him- He wanted to do it all by himself. Now he is more then happy to let me carry his lunch bag for him. It's hard to believe that he is old enough to go to school. I'm just glad that he is totally loving it and not crying each morning.

For the past year or so the entertainment center has been driving me crazy. It wasn't do it's job well enough to be taking up so much room in our crowed apartment. There used to be shelves on either side but with small kids we've never been able to keep anything on them- so I found cute trees to put in them. But alas the entertainment center became a catch all for random toys, papers,etc....and it was driving me crazy. It always looked messy. Sooooo last week Ash and I did something about it...
Before Above and After Below
I found this great dresser at a thrift store for 50 bucks! With a new coat off paint, a little sanding around the edges and minus 2 of the five drawers- I've got my new entertainment center! I love having the drawers because now all the kids games that Lily loves to dump out are hidden away. And the room once again seems huge. I have more stuff to put up on the wall behind the T.V. and Ash is going to help me paint the wall behind the stay tuned for more makeovers!
