When you have kids (well, three at one time) the house you once thought was plenty of room starts shrinking more and more everyday. So, we have to make the MOST out of the space we have available at the moment.
Brent and I were discussing the fact that the girls are SO CLOSE to crawling and that I am soon not going to be able to walk out of the living room, where they had all of their toys and play area, for fear that they (Baylee) would be getting into something. So we decided to do some switching around and turn our small dining area into a playroom that we can gate off so no one can escape while Mommy has her back turned.
We love how it turned out (just need to get the hugely, long gate we purchased put up) and we love having our living room back. We no longer have to step over toys or around an exersaucer to watch television or chat on the couch.
