Condo Tales ~ Space Issues

With our newborn at 5 weeks old.

Before she was born, we thought our 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo would be so crowded with 5.  We moved her crib into the dinning room, across from the dinner table with a changing table right next door.  Odd choice, but a baby can't sleep in the kids room or they will keep each other up all night!

We felt anxious to move out of this condo ASAP.

We made big plans.

Now that she's here, we find she's quite happy in the crib that is placed in the dinning room, right in the center of all activity.  After all, she got used to all the noise in utero.  Why not enjoy the noise all day long!  She actually sleeps better when the kids are really loud and hyper.

So we've found some patience with our housing for now.  The kids are getting used to a new routine and we are all doing okay.

This is so poorganic that I'm sharing it with my Facebook followers. :) It's amazing how we can become content with something that seemed like it would be intolerable.
