Last night, after the babies were all sound asleep, I painted the bathroom. It started just as a “let’s paint a little swatch and see how this color looks”, and sometime after Conan was over, the whole bathroom was a new, lovely shade of cocoa brown. It’s a bold departure for me, because while I love earthy colors, I have never gone nearly this dark. It’s richly chocolate colored, and I have to say, I LOVE it.
This sudden painting frenzy was spurred on by the new bathroom floors being installed tomorrow, and my need to “pretty” things up before I have to mind the spills. Anyway, I was I curious to see what the kids would say when they stumbled to go potty this morning.
Still snuggling, warm in bed with Abby, I listened to Jeffrey pinball down the hallway to the potty, and smiled when I heard him call out excitedly to Beanie… Beanie promptly sprang from bed, because that’s what he does- he is either on 100% or sound asleep- no middle ground, but that’s a story for another day…
Waiting for shouts about how different the bathroom is, instead I hear Jeff exclaim in wonder: “BEANIE! LOOK! Mom moved three toilet paper rolls to the back of the toilet tank!”
That is what my kid noticed. The toilet paper. It’s been hours, and he still hasn’t notice the bathroom is completely different. Just the paper. Men.
