We arrived home Tuesday evening to find that the floors that were supposed to be installed while we were away were not finished. I used a few choice expletives when I saw this…
Now, that said, our cat, Samson seemed to be pretty chill about the whole situation…
The good news was that the living was done so the boys play space could be put back together quickly. The boys were very unsettled by the state the house was in. With things not “in their place” and familiarity disrupted the boys had a tough time adjusting. There was a few meltdowns, some temper tantrums and a lot of “where did it go?” questions.
I am LOVING the floors and I know the boys will get used to the renovations soon. Renovations are hard on everyone. Being displaced from your home and having changes made to it (even for the better) takes a period of adjustment. I always think my boys are so easy going but this has really made me understand that big changes are hard for kids.
ARGLE BARGLE!!! That is so frustrating. Having been – and still going through – renovating, I know how stressful it is. Especially if you expect them to be done when you get home…argh!
So frustrating indeed! I didn’t include the photos of where they put all the furniture from the dining room – in the bathroom, the kitchen and the laundry room! That meant we basically had use of the living room, our bedrooms and the upstairs bathroom. Nothing like having toddlers and no kitchen or laundry room!
But, alas. It is done now. Thank goodness.
Glad to see your comment that it’s all done. Kids are soooo sensitive to changes to their routine, I hope you guys get back to your groove soon.
Thank you! We are slowly getting back into our schedule. I always think that because we travel quite a bit that the boys are used to change. However, definitely when the changes are happening to their own home it is a different story.
