But dust galore?

But I don't have to help pull it out or scrape paint since I'm on 24/7 toddler duty. That makes me smile.

babshoney. Box the cute kid up and send him to me. I have always wanted one different than too many whining nieces and nephews. If I ever here "Uncle Steve_ one more time, knowing what the sorry assed buggers want?

Joking aside, I worry about you. Your still trying to sell Mom's old house? You are now being told to consult your dull, near brain dead, diy forum for help? Your Mom must be a piece of work.

What if you told Mom to get her own presence here. You and the future famous creation of yours look special. Does your Mom and partner look like absolute Alpo fed barkers? Age is not kind to some women. Assure them we will not know on this forum.

I'll let you have the kiddo between 8 and 11 pm.
But keep in mind he may or may not be currently going through a phase.

As for my mom, she's great, really. She just works her tail off and doesn't have a whole lot of free time. I have time. Not necessarily free time because of the kid but I am the one home. She also has been turning to me for a lot of help with this stuff because I have turned out to be pretty good at this hands-on work. Honestly, it's nice to do something other than sing and play, so I don't mind it.
And her have a presence here!?! Haha... She is still struggling with her iPad and her employees have had a rule for YEARS that she isn't allowed near the copier. Computers aren't her thang.

Personally I think she's a tiny bit nuts for doing all of this but at least on this new house the majority of the work is contracted out.
Oh well, the harder the work the greater the reward right?
