I decided to take the plunge and participate in this Loveliness Fair. Our house is under construction. In the meantime, we are living with my parents. We are currently, minus our soldier Daddy, a family of 5 living with my parents. It can be cramped at times especially now with my brother living here temporarily while he finds a job. When we visit we always use the room we lived in years ago when it was just Brother and me while my husband was in Korea. In my autistic son's mind, this is his home and this room is his as is the bed that is in there.
You can see the bookshelf that is at the foot of his bed. There sits a radio where we listen to music and audio books (I was going to say books on tape except they're all on CDs). This is just a fraction of the books we own. Most of them are in storage much to my children's dismay. They miss their books more than their toys.
This is the shelf that holds our Leap Pads, LEGOS, and Barbies along with any small miscellaneous toys that fit into the small blue boxes. Elegant? No. Simple? Yes. We don't have much elegance in this room. Just simplicity.
This is where the girls and I sleep. It's very comfortable and I like knowing the girls are right there with me. They sleep better too knowing subconsciously that I'm there. It's really good all around. We do all fit. We could have half this size and we'd fit because for some reason, by the morning, they're all right there clinging to me. Even my son has been known to be found right next to me snuggling up against me. What could be lovelier?
No words needed for this picture.
Well, I hope y'all have enjoyed this peek into our home.
