I’ve been toying with the idea of switching my blog to WordPress for quite a while. One of the reasons is so that I can post my photos bigger. So I thought, with the new year and all, I’d try things over here for a while. Please chime in and let me know what you think.
So, Murphy’s Law came to visit our house. A mere two days after I spent hours with the boys sorting they LEGO by color into our new fancy-schmancy bins, Apollo learned to climb out of his crib. Why does this matter, you ask? Because the LEGO were stored in the boys’ room where Apollo slept. a fine situation when he was caged in. Not so fine now that he has learned to escape. So, the LEGO need a new home.
And at the moment that new home happens to be our dining room. It’s not so bad since they are all contained in two plastic bins with drawers. And since they were up here, all sorted and handy, Kalina, Mordecai, Jubilee, Hezekiah, Avi and Tucker spent from 8 am to 2 pm playing with them (with a break for breakfast and lunch). My theory is that it is better to have the LEGO up here in plain sight where we can teach Apollo to stay out of them rather than have him be able to climb out of bed and access them in secret.
Another bonus is that since they are up here, I was able to supervise the mess being made. Every hour or so I would have them pick up any pieces that had fallen to the floor and at dinner time any loose pieces were put back in the bins (projects were stored on our dining room counter). We shall see how long this arrangement lasts.
And we shall also see how well Apollo adjusts to a new bed. Perhaps this will be the key to a night’s sleep?
