Oh yes, we know how to make the best of a situation. We are loving our new zen water feature in the entrance foyer, totally adding to the good feng shui of our home. We are also loving our new bathing routine, which involves warming the kitchen with the oven and bathing babes in the kitchen sink. We have a large kitchen sink that is coming in handy for cleaning two little girls. Elle’s first bath in the sink became quite the water play experience (Sorry all of those faint of heart, I should have taken the knives down – trust me when I say the magnet is very strong – still a moment of potentially bad mothering!). Knives aside, who would have thought bathroom renovations could be so much fun? The girls bickered over who got to go first and how long each got to be in the sink, and Elle begged to get back in again after Maya.
Now fun aside, who would have thought bathroom renovations would be so expensive? We received the quote this week to gut the bathroom and put in a new one, and given the age and style of our house, this comes with a price tag of over $14K and that does not include the tub, sink, toilet, tiles, lights etc etc. We are waiting to hear the final word from insurance, which we gather will be a small proportion of this cost, we figure some insurance money is better than nothing. Non the less we will work it out and we will soon have a gorgeous new bathroom! Very excited, and very grateful!
