Today I chose to pretend that there was no laundry to fold, no dishes to wash, no bathrooms to scrub. I pushed away the thought that the playroom is so messy that there is no floor to walk on. And we went outside to play in the yard.
The biggest factor in choosing this house to rent out of many others that we saw was this backyard--a place for my preschooler to run and play. A place for my baby to crawl around and try to eat the grass. A nice shade tree, and a fence for privacy and security.
P.S. Can you spot the squirrel?
