After looking at different Fort Eustis apartments, I considered myself very fortunate to find a three bedroom apartment as quickly and as easily as I did. Even though it is just me and my son, we definitely needed a third bedroom for the times my mom would need to stay over and watch him. I did not want to disrupt him by having him stay at her house since she lives nearly 20 minutes away. It was just easier to have her come here when I have to work overnight, and I wanted her to have her own bedroom when that was the case.
I would have loved to have her move in with us, but she is too independent for that. She loves living on her own, though she does not mind coming over once or twice a week and watching her only grandson while I work. The two of them have such a close bond, and I am just thankful that I have a built in babysitter like that for him. The apartment that I got is really nice too, which is a bonus for all of us.
It has a very large living room. It is around 14 foot by 18 foot, and the dining room is just a tad smaller. There is a balcony that is right off the living room. At the opposite end are our three bedrooms. There is only one bathroom, but that is really all that we need here since all three of us are rarely here at the same time. It is a really nice place where we can all relax, and it is in a safe neighborhood too, which is very important to me. My son really likes it here and my mom doesn’t mind the small commute, and that is what is most important to me.
