Helping with the new furniture....
So, the new living room furniture was delivered on Wednesday during Gage's naptime. I had no idea that the tables would not be put together. WTF? They were dropped off in boxes. I asked the delivery guy, "Is that my coffee table?" When he told me yes it was, I responded with, "It looks a little flat. Are you going to put that together for me?" No, he was not going to, and he did not. I commented, "What if I was a single mom here, and had no tools or no idea how to do it!?" To which he responded, "well, are you single?"
No. No, I'm not. And my husband will have the lovely job of putting this together. Thanks.
Anyway....when Gage woke up from his nap, he went NUTS about the love seat being on his "road". His "road" is the border of the rug. He was crying hysterically! He took me to my room & told me to stay. He shut the door. He returned to the living room, still just bawling. I mean---big, fat tears just streaming down his cheeks. I was peeking around the corner as I watched him take the throw pillows off & throw them to the side. Then he removed each cushion & piled them to the side. After that, he huffed & puffed...used all of his might to push the love seat off the rug onto the hardwood floor, and thus clearing his road. He was just heartbroken that we would be so disrespectful as to place furniture on his road.
So, the only thing that made him develop some sort of acceptance toward the new furniture was helping Daddy put the new end tables & coffee table together.
Why, yes, those are sharp scissors in his hand. He did amazingly well with them, under strict supervision of course. He had a great time stabbing & cutting large chunks of styrofoam with them.
And in this pic, you can see more of the new love seat. The couch matches...
I haven't taken any pics of the whole living room yet.
The paint color & rug that were already in the living room---well, to our surprise it all goes. So, we don't have to change that, but we have to change the window treatments. I need to find some curtains, and we've got the white wood blinds to put up, but they need the curtains so that the window will look right.
Anyway....I've got to work on finding something that's just right....and then I'll post a new pic!
