Something simple, like finally having a hook for Simon’s chalkboard/whiteboard to hang on, can make me so happy. We bought one of those stick-on hooks, since we rent here and didn’t want to drill a hole in the faux paneling, just in case that would make our landlord cranky.
Now my little guy can stand and write on his board, now hanging in a corner of the kitchen where he will be in our sight when we cook. (To remind him not to eat the chalk, or use the dry erase marker on the wall.) He now has this little place he can go for bursts of creativity.
