House of Havac
Before having a husband and 2 children I never would have believed the utter destruction that lay ahead of me. When I lived alone, I had this cute little apartment with cute little things in it. I spent time trying to make it feel like home, trying to make it look and feel nice...
When my husband and I moved into our brand new home 30 days before our first son was born it was prisitine! Gorgeous wood floors, brand new carpet, fresh paint. We didn't have to do anything but move in. Every tile in the bathroom was sparkling. Every window and mirror fingerprint free. Even the appliances were perfect and clean since they were new.
Fast forward 5 years and 4 months later and what had become of my beautiful brand new home? It's been destroyed my 2 little tiny male children. There are 1000 divits in that once gorgeous wood floor. There are stains galore on the carpet. Every section of drywall I see has dents and marks on it. Beautiful wood door trim has huge holes in it from previously installed baby gates. The screen in front of our gas fireplace...destroyed from the work of these two tiny little men....One of them even managed to break the interior pane of one of our windows! One of our kitchen cabinet drawers literally had the front pulled off and we had to replace our fridge because of my little monkeys! (Which I might add already has dents in it!)
It's pretty depressing. I want my house to look nice again. I'm trying to reclaim it but it is a big and arduous process. I'll keep you posted of my progress. I grabbed a can of the original paint today and tried to cover up some of the worst spots....we'll see how long that will last!
