A dessert picnic at the new house
RQ: If Luke had been a girl. . .
Justin and I moved into our house last weekend, but we couldn’t help but go over to the house on closing day (June 1st) to celebrate with a little “dessert picnic” on the floor.
It was really fun to see David just run from room to room with reckless abandon. The house was completely empty so he just ran in circles from room to room.
After doing to tour for the hundredth time, discussing once again where we thought we are going to “live” in the house (there are 3 bonus rooms and we always go back on forth on which one we want to be the play room), we told David to go pick his room.
*David’s wearing a Seventh Generation diaper as well. Strong and VERY stretchy–great for all the climbing and running he does.
He ran right into the one at the top of the stairs, only because it’s the first door you come to, and we declared it his! Luke’s room is down the hall a little bit, and his is a little bigger since I still use the glider and ottoman with Luke when he eats.
Anyway, after the tour we laid out a blanket and ate some dessert. David dove head first into the Oreos, and while he only had 1/2 of one, he sure covered himself with chocolate in the process.
We had nothing over there, so I grabbed some baby wipes for us all to use to clean up after dessert. Other than the fact that the Seventh Generation Free & Clear baby wipes are natural and made without harmful chemicals, there is no odor and they are also really thick. So one wipe really goes a long way. And wiping David’s face with any other wipes usually leads to a frustrating, hand-flailing experience, but wiping his face with these caused zero resistance. At home we usually just wet a paper towel, so he wasn’t even phased by this odorless wipe.
Luke did not get any chocolate but he was happy anyway.
I love the fresh start of a new *to us* home. We have plenty of projects to do around the place to really make it our own, and I find myself daydreaming of the boys growing older in this place. I’m also slowly but surely making changes from my default products to ones that are more gentle and natural. David makes an enormous mess when he eats a meal, so I feel better wiping his mouth and hands with a natural wipe since it will inevitabley go into his mouth again almost immediately.
