I am self conscious about our two story family room. I admit it. It's just tall and ominous, and a little too "much" for me. However, it is great fun to hang party decorations from the loft, and my favorite feature is the ability to throw things down instead of carrying them down the steps like civilized people. You know, "Sunday clothes for Noah"...dunk. "Sophia needs a hairbow"...glide. Or, "No, Noah, don't throw that car down!" The last is my least favorite. We do have a rule about the kids throwing things down, but I do throw stuff down because I'm allowed. :)
The other week we let them throw down expired coupons...see what fun it is! My least favorite thing can be a lot of fun.
