Ahhh, decorating. I suck at it. If you had to describe my house it is mostly "refined Salvation Army". As long as it's comfy and clean, I don't really worry too much. Meh. I hate spending money on things that are only "decorations". What purpose do they serve???
However, I do put some thought and effort into the boys' rooms. At least the walls. I grew up with peachy/orange walls for 18 years, and I think it might have damaged some brain cells. What? It was the 70's, my Mom was trying, for God's sake.
You will recall that I had a plan for Little o's room when he moves out of the nursery. We were going all space for him, with his Alien friend as our inspiration. I picked colors, we started sketches. Thoughts ruminating and all. But. Screeching halt. I had another thought.
What if we put the boys together in one room? With bunk beds? They're only 19 months apart, and they get along. Hell, if he could little o would sleep with LG right now (he can't get out of his crib, though). I know, I know, so many people I know who had to share a room hated it. Wished their sibling would die or get lost at the mall so they didn't have to share any more. But this is optional. When one of them says , "Hey, I've had enough time sharing with Bozo, I want my own space" this will be an easy accomplishment. The spare room will still be there to convert at that point (and we'll keep their convertible cribs, so beds won't be a problem either).
Which has lead to my next dilemma, how to decorate this shared room? Airplanes are really LG's thing (and hence on his wall). Space (and Alien) is really little o's thing, not LG's. I need a simple theme that works for both of them. Cars? Trucks? Castle and knights (oooh, dragon?) Thoughts? Help a girl out, here.
Ok, that's all I've got this week. Lame, I know. Get over it. Oh, for those that asked, we did have a great day yesterday. We met up with some cousins at the Natural History Museum and tore the place up. Space, building blocks, dinos and ot-ters. The boys had a great time!
Go see Sprite's Keeper, and keep the Spin going.
