“The best way to keep children at home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant, and let the air out of the tires.” — Dorothy Parker
We hope that it won’t come to that. We hope that when our future child sees our profile with the pictures of our home (the child’s bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen, etc.) that he or she will actually want to be here. So, we spent the weekend working to create a durable but fashionable bathroom. Originally, it had powder blue flat paint with a border that looked more like shelf liner than accent. I chose a taupe in a semi-gloss so it would be easy to wipe clean should muddy little hands find it. The light… well, I just couldn’t stand the showgirl vanity lights any longer. Exposed bulbs are great until you install energy saving bulbs with their ugly coils. Yuck. That is also why we turned the new light upside down.
My thought is to decorate the walls with some black and white photography. I thought I might accent with some light green. What do you think?
And while we were hard at work making things gorgeous… what do you think our darling Golden Retrievers were up to? I’ll give you two hints: it wasn’t rated G and Dustin was so winded that I caught him doing this:
Think: puppies. But the picture of the weekend just has to be this one of Sara Beth, our house chicken. Perhaps I shouldn’t refer to her as the “house chicken” because that sounds like the lunch special at a diner — ya know? Sara Beth had trouble maintaining her body heat so she stayed in the house at night under a heat lamp (Not running loose, okay?). She goes back outside during the heat of the day and spends her time plotting and scheming to get back in the house. Here she is after having been removed from the house for the umpteenth time:
Doesn’t she look a bit peeved?
