- Switch Sophie and Maddie's room (front of the house) with the playroom (back of the house)
- Re-paint both rooms
- get fancy with the painting
- Completely re-do Eliza's room
Each decision led to the next one. When all was said and done, the only room on that side of the house with no plans was the guest bath. And, I'm not entirely convinced we won't do something there, too.
Here's the delimma - they want a "princess" room. Now, I am all for letting the kids decide paint colors and expressing themselves (you've seen how my children dress), but for some reason I am drawing the line at a Disney princess room.
Since begging for advice always helps in this blog, this time I am asking for non-Disney princess decorating ideas. They already have a white full size bed and twin bed that can be bunked but we aren't doing that just yet. (My two-year-old is slightly accident prone. sigh)
They also have two quilts that have been pieced and are waiting to be quilted, so that's covered. The quilts have pinks, blues, purples, greens and a little yellow and orange. I really thought about going with a pale pink and pale orange (think strawberry ice-cream and orange sherbet) but that's as far as I got. And I guess that's not very princessy.
So, c'mon all you mothers of sons and tomboys out there! Now's your chance to help me decorate a very girly room! Go crazy!
Alright, sorry to anyone who is tired of all the Sophie quotes, but I want to remember these things.
- Seeing the chocolate cake I made - "Yum! It smells like a princess!" It goes without saying that smells like a princess is my new catch phrase.
- "Mommy. Your legs. Have thorns." you'll never guess what that means
One last Hurrah in the old playroom.
Goodbye crayon all over the walls. Maddie is showing off her giraffe-riding skillz.Goodbye funky paint and who-knows-what carpet stains. This one of Sophie (who's washing her car, "it's just filthy") is for Nana and Auntie to show off her new tangle free hair. Woo!And this one because it's sweet.
