After walking the kids to school, we tackled their bedroom and reorganized furniture. Since they are getting older, it’s time to remove some of the “little kid” things to make room for “bigger kid” items. Whew, some of the cabinets were heavy, particularly the bookcase! This took more energy than walking. It’s quite a challenge making everything fit into 1 bedroom for 2 kids.
Looking over at Samantha’s bed, I laughed and thought of you. Her brother sleeps on the loft bed, and beneath is her mattress that she, obviously, stood on tippy-toes to insert the bendable flowers through the above mattress slots. Every year, Target sells these in their $1.00 bin, and I always pick up a handful. I never knew where they went and one day they appeared here. BRILLIANT! Now as she falls asleep and wakes, she sees smiles. It doesn’t matter that it’s winter, her bed is full of spring! She even added her butterfly wrist/snap bracelet.
Pretty soon, Mirabel, you’re going to be standing tippy-toe and decorating your own room. You’re going to come racing out to show mom and dad your latest creation or you might wait until they discover it on their own. You’re about to be roaming the halls, and having your hands on everything, illustrating what’s going on in your mind.
You might even have an opinion on how your furniture should be arranged. Notice, we did this while the kids were at school? Samantha has too strong of opinions, especially on the removal of her old Barbie house that was never used. (ssssh…Goodwill, here we come) Hopefully, she won’t immediately notice it’s gone. Yes, and pretty soon, you’re going to be stomping those feet in anger and throwing yourself on the bed, like Samantha is going to do, when realizing something has been removed without her consent.
