Big changes have been going down this week and I couldn’t wait to share…
Do you remember our baby death trap railing?
With a baby on the move, this railing terrified me. Amelie could be crawling around the dining room table and whoopsies, fall into the den to her death. So we did something about it. We TORE IT OUT AND BUILT A WALL. See?
Actually, I didn’t do anything except drink coffee and watch our German handyman, Michael, do everything. He was hesitant about closing up our open floor plan and told me “I’ll do it, but I’m not going to like it.”
But you know what? I love it and that’s what matters.
Here’s the back, framed:
Not only does it save the babies, it cozies up the rooms and cuts down on the noise transfer. Finally Hubs can watch TV in the den while I watch
TED talks the Panda Cam at the kitchen table.
Along with a new wall, we had the handrails revamped. Surprisingly, updating these were the most labor intensive of all. Notice how they were uneven?
Michael fixed those right up!
Now they match, they are even, they are up to code and you can’t knock them over if you accidentally sneeze loudly in their general direction. Yay for safety! Even MamaP approves!
Happy Friday, friends. You know what? Go and build yourself a wall if you want to.
