Heads are about to roll over here--
my 3 boys? They share a room.
To my everlasting torture, they share a room.
They love it-- don't feel sorry for them.
But the 2 hours before bedtimes shenanigans?
I'm about to bust some heads. I know it's still light at bedtime-- I get it. But when your kids won't wake up for school in the morning and are crying 'cause they're tired? Kinda tends to grate on the ole nerves.
Case in point?
Please regard my incognito, secret spy, around-the-corner shot of my little butt munches, not 30 seconds after I told them to calm down:
Please regard that my middle child is a blur, as he is hopping from bed to bed.
Now, it's not that we don't have another room; we do. They enjoy sharing a room. Pissing their parents off. Breaking their beds. And so forth.
So, this "other" room--
it's not much talked about. Perhaps it's because we're embarrassed.
And, you know, it's got a couple cute things,
like the kids' simple growth chart on the door,
or the Pottery Barn Kids chalkboard knockoff I made eons ago,
our "playroom" is the red-headed stepchild of the family.
Notice that I'm still not showing you this disaster catastrophe of a room in it's entirety.
Now, I could be a normal person, and just like, move a bed in here, rearrange a few things, and call it good.
But I've never claimed to be normal.
I believe it was pinterest that got me totally, completely, head over heels obsessed with window beds.
You know, window beds? Bed nooks? Whatever you wanna call them?
So much excitement. I mean, full out I'm about to wet my pants excitement.
I can't stop thinking about them.
Oh, my gosh Becky--
look at that bed.
It is so big.
Don't believe I have this many books to necessitate such a bookcase.
But it is truly fabulous.
This 'uns my favorite.
Bet you'll never guess why. (cough-molding -cough)
It's the cow. Man, I love cows.
I'll be using this awesomeness as my guide. My muse. My standard that I can never possibly live up to and therefore, will be disappointed in any case.
I'm moving forward anyway! Got permission from the hubs! Told me he wants nothing to do with it! The work has already begun, people! Already had an injury!
