Dear Beautiful Hardwood Floors,
I bet you thought that you had seen it all when you survived the previous owners. Five children were raised in this house, and some of them were rough and tumbled boys. You probably thought it would be cake that the house was sold to a young couple with just one mostly outdoor cat. And then we brought home 2 dogs for part of the year. And then you saw we had a baby, but it was a girl. Girls are dainty and calm. So you thought. And then the baby girl found her favorite activity was this...
I am so sorry hardwood floors. Maybe in another 50 years you will get refinished again and a nice young couple will move in with no plans to have babies*, wear high heels or have dogs.
We still love you,
*P.S. But I hope not, because we are planning a killer backyard for a family. Seriously, this backyard would be wasted otherwise.
