Sure, it’s all relative. One person’s small house is another one’s mansion. Perhaps this should be called “the amazing expanding and contracting family,” which might be a more apt title for a family that includes 2 little kids and 3 big stepkids. Sometimes my house is just the right size, other times it feels like a flop house. Yes, I was spoiled with my old big house, but this is the new reality. We are one bedroom short half of the time. Rex sleeps in either the play room (the space off the kitchen… I give it a name to make me feel more grand), or I put him in my teenage stepson’s room. I thought we would do this for a year. But, last time I checked the economy is still in the toilet, so here we are. We live in a great place, if I just had a pop out room. Or if Rex ever cottoned to sleep training the way his big sister did.
Anyway, this vid is more in the cinema verte style. A slice of life of domesticity. A reality check for what motherhood looks like.
