Our Little Helper

Y’all.  The flip is finished.  It just hit the market.  I am pumped.

"After" Photos of Our Fifth Flip by It's Great to Be Home

Legitimate before and afters coming soon, I promise!

We spent the weekend cleaning the flip from top to bottom, equipped with a backpack vacuum, razor blades, Magic Erasers, mops and all sorts of other cleaning-type stuff.  It was just about the least fun I’ve had in awhile.  My mom can attest that I might have had a slight meltdown during the never-ending process of clutching a razor blade in my handclaw and scraping wood stain off those 8 little beveled windows in the front door.

However, a huge bright spot in all that not-fun was our little helper.

How could you not smile when you see that face??  She is so darn cute I can hardly stand it.  :)

Some of you have asked how we still manage to get things done with the flips now that Peanut’s in the picture.  Well, it’s pretty simple – for the most part she just tags along with us, like when we hit up the tile store or Sears.

( She was an excellent Vanna White next to the stove we bought for the flip. )

And sometimes, of course, one of us stays behind and watches her at home while the other tackles whatever we have on the agenda at the moment.

It can get a little tricky at times (like around nap time), but we make it work for the most part.  I think it will be fun to look back when she’s a little older and tell her how she’s been helping us flip houses since she was born.  :)

But enough about that – who’s ready for more flip pictures?  Me!  Me!
