Earlier in the year my daughter H, who was 12 at the time, changed a few things in her room. It made me a bit sad to take the things out of the dollhouse and pack them up. I had thought that would be it for awhile. I was wrong.
The other night while I was napping, she mentioned to HB that she wanted to get the “kiddie” things out of her room now that she is 13. ~I know of another wordpress blogger going through the same thing with her son.~ Anyway, yesterday I thought I would surprise her and change things for her. Which made me feel icky but she loved the changes.
I threw all the stuffed animals down into the basement–probably to go to the Goodwill. Removed all the “kiddie” things that were sitting around. Then I moved all the furniture around. Took out the wooden dollhouse. I added my beautiful desk to her room that I bought for ME off Craigslist–to give my sewing machine a permanent home. sniff I added some ‘big girl’ things to the top and now she has a place to do her homework in peace.
The room was a hit!! I am glad she enjoyed the changes. Now she wants to go buy posters to hang on the walls.
Plus now B2 wants me to change his room. LOL
I have become Michelle The Decorator. To go along with my Supermom title.
Nothing new to report at our house. I am still feeling icky with this pregnancy. I’ll be glad when this bundle of joy arrives….but then I long to enjoy my last pregnancy. If only I felt better. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.
I guess I’ll go back to the comfort of my couch and the Dora blanket I was covered up with. Have a lovely Thursday.
