My Head All Wet

We all know that Ryan has a gorgeous head of hair, yes? He apparently thinks so too. Whenever I wash his hair, he gets DEEPLY insulted. Deeply. And it’s hair, so it’s not like this is a yearly thing. It happens fairly often. You would think he would be used to it by now. But no, whenever I wash his hair, he lets out a yell of insult like I kicked his puppy and then sobs for a bit. Then when I get him out of the tub, he spends the next hour telling me that “my head all wet.” Just to make sure that I don’t forget the awful insult I have done to him. 


Elizabeth, working on her homework: “Mom. I don’t know what Liz means here.” 

Me: “It’s a nickname. Do you know what it is short for?” 

Elizabeth, without hesitation: “Lizard.” 

House Tour- Kitchen 

Moving on! Through the dining room and hallway is the kitchen.  

This view is from the hallway to the garage. 


Stove and cabinets. Elizabeth drew that picture for Matt. It is her and him and a giant Yoda.  



This is the view from the archway from the dining room. 

My desk. 

We had to start storing the doughnuts on the top of the fridge when Ryan kept stealing them off the counter. 


Kitchen table and high chair. The pantry is behind those two folding doors. 

The laundry room is behind the wall with all the pictures. And the garage is down that hallway. The cupboard under the stairs is down there too and it has been turned over to Elizabeth for her hideout. I installed these red pendant lights myself and I really like them. 


House Tour- Playroom and Dining Room

I’ve been meaning to do a house tour since we moved in and everything was unpacked. So tonight is the night. I am starting from the front door and working my way through. 

When you come in the front door, the playroom is on your right. It’s not meant to be a playroom, it was designed as a formal living room, but I’ve never liked having a living room since they rarely get used.    
Connected to the playroom is the dining room. 


And finally, here is a close up of the entryway. I got these high shelves and hooks specifically for visitors to have someone where to put their things that the children wouldn’t be able to get into. But I also like the way they make the entryway look a little more finished. 

I enjoyed how I decorated this for Christmas so much that I am working on decorating it a little better year round but I haven’t gotten there yet.
