We are moving next week. The house we are moving into will be "Our" first house. DH and SD7 moved in with me for a couple of years so we could save money. As the date closes in I've been thinking. I wonder if this move could be a good opportunity to change some things in the house.
The house we are in now is very small. VERY SMALL!! We share a bathroom, I constantly clean it because SD7 is super grose(I'll spare you the details) and I can't stand to use it unless it's clean. We share towels, and soap and body wash as well, because I'm not bathing her, and she'll find mine and use it. She is in and out of our bedroom, in our faces, all over the place. Won't play outside, won't play in her room for very long, lays in her bed awake for hours, gets up at the crack of dawn....on and on and on.
So I'm thinking, since her room will be on a different floor now,(Thank God!) and she has her own bathroom(Thank God) we can start slow, with some basic "take care of yourself" tasks. Cleaning her bathroom, with supervision, will be the first. Putting her dirty laundry in the laundry room is number two. This seems like such a golden opportunity to make changes, I wondered if anyone had good luck changing bad habits after this kind of move?
