Parker and I started fostering a 21 month old angel baby 4 weeks ago today. I can’t possibly put into words what life is like now, but I do know that becoming a foster parent has been the absolute hardest thing I’ve ever done but it’s also brought me more joy than I’ve ever experienced thus far. Life feels very rich right now.
After Parker and I were knee deep in the process of becoming certified to foster, I started thinking about the child’s room design. We didn’t know the child’s gender, child’s age (although we set our range for 0-3, so I knew it would be somewhere in there) or the child’s personal interests. It was slightly hard to find a starting point for the room given I had no restrictions or requests from the little human, but it was challenging in a good way.

My parents recently gave their laundry room a makeover, and while Parker and I were home for the holidays, we really got to enjoy it. Like most homes, the main hangout in my parents’ home is the kitchen, but since they have a brand new laundry room we found ourselves partying in the laundry room. Laugh if you want, but I think that anyone who loves their laundry room would tell you it’s the perfect hidden party spot.

I’m moving right along through my parents’ house. They’re such good sports and we’ve now given a makeover to their living room, guest room, separate guest suite, sister’s room and now their laundry room. Sadly we’re actually starting to near the end of rooms available in that house……
