Croi said no more buying baby things until we get the “thumbs up” from the social worker. We both have some fear about being denied…….then what do we do. And, a little bit of not putting the cart before the horse.
But, Croi points out baby things just as often as I do. 🙂
So, ohdeedoh and other nursery planning sites have become a little baby therapy for us. A way to live in our heads a bit for now. (I was going to call it something else that rhymes with corn but I realized that could attract some terrible visitors I did not want. I often take pictures of food for work and when I take a really good one, my boss will call it “food ‘corn'”)
We like bright colors, not too matchy, but a little theme. A room that works well as a nursery and kids room and can easily be added to.
Here’s a few I’m currently drooling over. (And a favor at the end if you can stand it…)
I don’t think Croi would be so hip on this. She’s had enough of my propensity to bring branches indoors, decorate them, and call them art.
I don’t think we are “bold” enough for grey walls…. but I do think they are gorgeous. Maybe when I win the Publishers Clearing House and I re-do the kitchen and bathroom.
Some animal/nature kind of things, and just bright, happy kid things.
Here’s the favor: Little monkey’s (s’) room will be the room that is currently our office . Transition occuring this summer. Our house was built in 1890, so has lots of “quirks.” In monkey’s room is a door that opens into the coat closet. (Yes, the coat closet has another door near the front door, so this one never needs to be used.)
We plan on putting the crib along this wall. Would you:
a) put the crib to the left–leaving the coat closet door exposed? The radiator is by the door, as well.
b) put the crib in front of the door, and closer to the radiator. This room is usually pretty warm.
Especially if you choose A–any ideas for decorating in a cool way?
