The Happy Family at Home
Tim is still sound asleep. I expanded the bedroom a bit, adding a closet for Kate and adding a few walls. They haven't unpacked all of their belongings yet. Most of the boxes are still packed downstairs.
"Mommy, am I going to the new school today?" (William)
"Yes, you certainly are." (Kate)
"The one we went to with the big playground?" (William)
"That very one." (Kate)
"Now can you go wake up, Daddy? It's time for him to get up." (Kate)
"Daddy? Time to get up." (William)
"You may have to get closer so he can hear you." (Kate)
"Daddy? It's time to get up!" (William)
Tim begins to stir.
"Oh, is it morning already? Come give daddy, a hug." (Tim)
"Mmmm. Nothing like a hug from my little man, in the morning." (Tim)
"I'm going to turn on the lights now." (Kate)
"Nooo, we want to sleep in." (Tim)
Kate turns on the lights, anyway.
"You're no fun. How did morning come so quickly? I feel like I just shut my eyes." (Tim)
"You were tossing and turning half the night. I'm not surprised you are tired." (Kate)
"Where you going, little man?" (Tim)
"To the potty." (William)
"So I was tossing and turning all night, huh?" (Tim)
"Yes. It's probably going to take you a little while to get used to the new house." (Kate)
"I do like the new house. Seems like a really nice neighborhood, too." (Tim)
"I can't wait to get the downstairs decorated so we can have a housewarming party." (Kate)
Meanwhile, William is ..... busy.
Kate crawls back in bed with her husband for a few more minutes. Can you blame her?
"Mom! I need help." (William)
So the McGraws will be working on getting their home unpacked. They still have quite a bit of remodeling to do, both upstairs and downstairs. They are in no rush, so that housewarming party may be a few months from now.
