Thankful Tuesday: Living with family

So its been more than a week since we've moved over to my parents' place, and our home renovations have been proceeding as planned. Staying with family has had its challenges, with the boys sometimes driving my mum nuts with their mess and running about. I also feel rather terrible about imposing on them, since we've taken up two rooms and loads of fridge space (and Junior J keeps wetting the mattress!). It has taken all of us some adjusting to this move.

However, staying with them also has had its plus points. My mum insists on cooking and settling the laundry on her own, which has taken a huge load off me while I battle with pregnancy exhaustion. Its also more bearable, having an extra pair of hands to help out with the kids, especially now that we've been going through two rounds of colds. And I am so glad the boys get to see and play with their grandparents more, and they love going for walks with their gong gong. :)

We're also really thankful that the boys have adapted to the move pretty well. They have less toys here, but are able to occupy themselves with whatever they have: pushing the high chair (which is on wheels) about, playing pretend, fiddling with bits and bobs (unfortunately that includes stove knobs and fan buttons for baby J!), banging on the door and generally disturbing my brother. There are less books to read too, but we're glad for those weekly visits to the library to get new reads. 

What are you thankful for this week?
