This is the view from my desk. Everyday, I take a moment or few and watch my son play in the hallway which has become like a huge play pen for him. Ever so often as I am working at my desk, he comes to me to say that he's hungry or wants to nurse or wants me to play with him. I spend a lot of my day sitting on that hallway floor. When we moved into this apartment a few years ago I detested this hallway. I thought what a waste of space. But now it's perfect. A perfect place for Maximilien to play and practice walking and soon he will love running up and down this hallway. Good thing our downstairs neighbor is deaf.
