I remember hearing about a dad who had to turn his man cave into nursery. Eventually, he had just three pendants on the wall. It was told as a tragedy but I decided it was a story about how kids and families and hobbies work. When we were expecting our doodle, I knew that I’d have my own version of that story.
Maybe my son will end up really into board games and we will end up with a closet or a room devoted to games. Maybe he won’t. But, right now, he will get the storage space he needs!
(When he’s a teenager, we may have very different views on storage space)
