Well, hey, I'll be the balloon blow up person. Families have ups and downs and all abouts. Learning how to deal with all that is the key. Learning how to talk stuff out is important.

You don't have to be each other and make the boy an imprint of your views. You are three people, talk.

@ossobuco,
This little boy sure is a talker! He’ll talk your ears off lol. He’s in the backyard trying to catch lizards, we have so many here in Florida but they are too fast for him.

This afternoon we are taking him shopping, tomorrow is his first day of school.

@jcboy,
He sounds like a pretty laid-back kid, but he's going through a lot of transitions at once (new city, new house, new school) and he might have a tough time with that. Just something to prepare for and not take personally if it happens.

@sozobe,
Yes he is. He seems to be adjusting very well and he hasn’t even moved in yet. Next weekend is the big move but he already knows he has a new home. He’s excited about school tomorrow, he’s been talking about it so much he wore himself out and now is taking a nap.

He did manage to catch one lizard today but I think it was an old one that couldn’t move too quickly Smile

@Izzie,
I have decided to have his bathroom remodeled before the weekend. New vanity, small enough for his height, new toilet, larger bowl for those who can’t aim well and new black & white tile. I have a guy coming out this Thursday to install everything.

@jcboy,
I don't think he really cares about having a new bathroom Smile

@MMarciano,
I was planning on having it done anyway. I just chose a child size vanity.

@jcboy,
So the carpenter came out today and took out the old sink and toilet from Antonio’s bathroom and left them on my back deck. He’s coming back tomorrow to install the new floor, toilet and vanity. Not sure what to do with the old toilet. It could make a nice planter for the backyard; I’m considering using it for a Boston fern Smile.

@jcboy,
You're such a softie, jcboy and I think you'll do just great with the little one.
Rather than getting a child size sink, you should have bought a little stool
where he can climb up to reach the sink.
When my daughter was little, we had a stool custom made with her name
on it. Actually the letters were carved out and could be removed....that's how
she learned to spell her name. Here is one

@CalamityJane,
That’s cute! Smile

I am a big softie when it comes to kids and I’ve never been around them before, but he is such a neat kid I can’t help but to want everything to be nice and new for him, and all his.

This vanity I found is the perfect height, if I were to use it I would have to bend down.

His father thinks I’m a nut lol.

@jcboy,
Definitely keep that full-height vanity. It won't be long at all before it's the right height for him. Do make sure you've got one or two kid-safe steps for him to use in the kitchen etc. He's old enough to help with small jobs there, and a step will help him.

@jcboy,
I see that he's stolen your heart already, that's sweet!

One piece of advice though: since it will be a new home for the little one, next time you try to decorate something for him, take him along and let him choose. This way, it will feel more home to him as he has taken part in decorating it.

@MMarciano,
heh heh <chuckles> Razz Bless him!

he'll soon figure out the noise levels increase tenfold as the years go by - just wait 'til the little fella has some friends over to play - OH MY!

So glad the little guy enjoyed school Very Happy

@MMarciano,
Well, remember how you were as a new father.... and that's what jcboy is, a new father, even though the "baby" is five years old!
