It's official we have put our house on the market. As exciting as the prospect of selling the house we have completely out grown and "busting out the bubble" to move into the city, it is a daunting to keep the house ready to show. Not that my house is every dirty or really even messy (despite what my mother would say) it's so much work! Bed's made with sheets pressed, dishes done, laundry done, dusted, mood lighting and music, fresh flowers and most of all.... NO TOYS! Yep my 2 year has to pick up her toys. Need I say more? I had no idea how Miss C would survive with out her playroom and toys. Guess what... like we are always told we don't need half of what we have. I have put Miss C's toys into rubber maid boxes and we get one out at a time. You would think it was Christmas every time she open a new box! So it's actually working out ok.
The cutest thing so far was last night when we saw that the box of flyers outside was empty and I took a stack of flyers to replenish it. Miss C wanted to help and as she carried the flyers down the drive way she looked down at the flyer and with this look of confusion and shock turned to me and said "mommy thats my house" Not that she has any idea of what is going on but it was a moment of bitter sweetness as I realized we are selling her first home.
