After looking around for months, trying to find a little bench to fit under the window in the girls’ bathroom, I asked Glenn to make me something.
Nothing fancy. Nothing involving a lot of time.
Just a simple, cute little bench on which the girls could set their clean clothes.
A place for them to sit while they do each other’s hair, or when Kate has one of her beauty salon days and fancies them up.
Within a few hours of my request, Glenn finished up something that fit my requirements perfectly.
I painted it with some leftover paint from Alix and Kate’s room.
But when I looked at it, it just needed a little something.
So I painted a gray number 5 right in the middle of the seat. Then I distressed it a little and rubbed on one coat of wax.
It made me laugh when each of the kids, one by one, asked me what the 5 represented.
It seemed so obvious to me…
Can you guess?
