A Cold Bedroom

When I was younger, I told everyone in my family that I never wanted to have kids because they were too much trouble. I wanted a life in a career that I loved, and I wasn’t even sure that I wanted to ever get married. As I grew older and went to college, my plan of never having children and possibly never even getting married hadn’t changed. After I graduated college, I met a wonderful man and fell in love with him. We were married, and one year later we had our first little girl. Fast forward ten years, and we have three beautiful children, and I am a full-time stay at home mom. I never dreamed this would be my life, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. One of the things that comes along with motherhood is worrying about your children. You see, my girls share a bedroom, and it is at the front of the house where most of the wind hits, and it tends to get pretty chilly in their bedroom at times. My husband asked the girls if they ever got cold at night, and they said that they never did. That wasn’t a good enough answer for me, and I wanted to find a way to keep the girls room warmer like the rest of the house. After some time, I convinced my husband to go out and buy a small space heater for the girls bedroom. He did, and their bedroom now stays warmer throughout even the coldest nights. I am glad to have peace of mind knowing that my girls are warm while they are sleeping.
