Whelp, the holidays are over and done with, the toys are (mostly) put away in our basement and we’re officially into 2015. Happy New Year, in case I didn’t say it in a previous post. I’ll be honest with all of you, 2014 was a whirlwind year for me. I started a new job, knocked up my wife for the second time (boom!), moved into a new house and was just insanely busy all year long. Sometimes during 2014 I felt like my head was about to explode from stress, it was that crazy.
What does having a toddler do to your house over the Holidays? Well, I can tell you what it does not do, and that’s create any more space. Especially when you have a mother like mine who likes to absolutely spoil her grandkids. Before Christmas, we cleaned the basement head to toe to make sure that we had more room for all the toys that we knew Nana was going to buy our little bundle of fire. We steam cleaned the carpets, cleaned out and threw away boxes. We even had a handyman come in and create the very last bit of storage possible in our house!
