I was not looking for a lot when I decided to look at three bedroom apartments in Jackson MS. I needed something that is affordable, which meant that I did not want something that had a ton of community amenities. I knew that I would be paying a high price for things that I either would not have the time to use or just did not want to use. Priorities change when you are a single mother to two young children. The girls had been sharing a room all their lives, but they are going to be going into the first grade soon. Our old apartment was just getting too crowded as they were getting older.
I wanted them to each have their own bedroom if I could find a three bedroom unit that was affordable for us. I do have a good job, and child care is not super expensive for me since my friends and I all help each other out with that. I also wanted them to have things to do there. When I saw Woodland Apartments, it was just the perfect place for the three of us.
There are three bedrooms along with two bathrooms. They are young enough to where sharing a bathroom will not be a big deal for many, many years down the road. The rooms are all a nice size too, but that is not even the best part. Just a few feet outside our door is a nice playground right on the property. The girls fell in love with it as soon as they saw it, and we spend a lot of time between that and the swimming pool. They are in a good school district, and this just makes life so much nicer for all three of us. For the first time in a while, I am looking forward to the future now.
