Monday Meanderings

Despite the lack of posts, things have been a hoppin' at the Jeffcoat House. Outside of the daily upkeep of 3 very active boys and an always on-the-go husband, we've been busy ready to house the boys in one room. My father-in-law came down and he and CJ built triple bunk beds. Our next adventure was finding a large enough dresser (at least 6 equal size drawers) that was affordable for us. Since CJ and I have had much of our furniture handed down to us from family or given to us as gifts, we didn't realize how expensive quality furniture is! WOWSA! We have found one, so now it's a matter of getting it to our house. I'm an antique furniture nerd and I was so excited to find this dresser- I love it! CJ is not so excited because this piece will be added to our other pieces which are horrendous for him to move. Anyway, all of that to say, we aren't done yet in the boys' room, therefore, we have not even begun on the nursery!

So, all extra time has been used to clean out, find creative storage solutions, and beginning to get things in some order my type A self can deal with; oh, and naps! I'll try to do better.

Triple bunk beds?! That sounds like alot of fun! Well, I hope you get everything taken care of before the baby comes :) We're kinda in the same situation....having to move and rearrange and get new furniture, etc.

Sounds exciting!! Have the boys shared a room at all before? I'm going to have Ben and Jake share a room when this baby comes, and I'm worried that all they're going to do is fight! Right now I can just tell Jake to go play in his room if he doesn't want Ben to mess with him, but what will I do when they share a room and all of Jake's toys are within Ben's reach??!!

You are awesome and I LOVE how you are making everything work out. I thought it was tough finding/making space for 2 kids...I can't imagine 4. You should write a book!
