This week's Home Tour Tuesday is 'show us your kid's bedrooms'.....
I actually wrote this post a few weeks back in preparation and I am glad I am finally getting to post it (I hate when posts sit in my 'draft's folder..LOL). Sadly, neither one of my kids has a big room. Christopher’s is a decent size, but poor Anthony, he got shafted!
The first thing to tell you about Christopher’s room is that he does not have a headboard yet. You see, we invested in the ‘lifetime crib’ that turned to a toddler bed and then a full bed. Well, as a full bed, his room would be too tight and there would be no room for him to play. They do have a matching twin bed, but I have been too cheap to buy it. It is another $600 and I already spent way too much on this furniture. But I think I may cave because it is starting to bother me : )
Both of my kid’s have artwork in their room’s that were made for them. This portrait of Christopher above the bed was painted by my little sister. I just love it!
The dresser is a bit messy. The tv is on there as well as some Lego’s, pictures, a lamp, and a fish tank. This fish is a carnival fish that has not yet kicked the bucket. Sadly, I am waiting and hoping that he goes to his final resting place soon. I try to hang up all of the pictures that Christopher makes in school….you will see them scattered around.
The two pictures above the dresser my mother-in-law painted. I wanted her to do a mural on the wall but she was too nervous. The hubs is a bit of a fanatic about things and she didn’t want him to yell if she messed up.
And the boy himself….
Next…on to Anthony’s room. There is not much here to showcase : ) The second child always gets slighted. The room can only fit his crib and one dresser. I still have my rocker that I sit in everyday to get this little bugger to sleep. He loves playing kitchen…he is constantly dumping out all of the food.
Anthony is in a toddler bed. He has been for quite some time. My own fault….you would think I would have learned by the second kid. But he was literally climbing out of the crib and I didn’t need any trips to the hospital. Now you can see why this child just walks out at night and makes his way to my room : )
The picture to the left was made by my mother-in-law. You can’t really tell from the picture, but it is 3 dimensional. She did a great job. And I made the name plaque.
MIL made these one’s above the dresser too…
And the boy himself….
