Mommy Moment Monday


Today is the day! My trifecta of happiness started. By some mere miracle, I was able to get Diva into a closer prek (she started today) which was right down the street from our house. So now I can easily walk Bug to school in the mornings and then on our way back home walk Diva to prek. Life is great! Everything has worked out the way I had hoped and the great thing is I have stopped trying to stress over the things I cant control (one small step for me!).

So what did I do with my extra time (I gained two extra hours a day by switching Diva to a closer school!)? I decided to finally update Bugs room. I wanted to surprise him with a big boy room when he got home from his first official first day of kindergarten.

Sadly, it was time for “The Hungry Caterpillar” room to go. It had served us well for the past 4 years. Like the room, Bug has started growing into a handsome butterfly and it was time his room reflected his transformation. But it wont be with out tears. The art in his “toddler” room was hand made by my mom, aunt and I. Of course I am going to keep it forever! I will never be able to part with it. Which is why it will either go in the playroom or the tote of Bugs items I am saving for him. Then it is his choice and I don’t have to be broken hearten with parting with it.

Many months ago I started this project. I knew it would take awhile for me to complete and decided to give myself this day as a deadline. I am happy to say that I did complete the major projects I had planned. His new bedding was ordered; now it is washed and already on his bed. Hubs painted his new art work; and its ready for Hubs to hang when he gets home from work. I also finally finished his new curtain holders. This was a labor of love. It was so much fun to do and I cant wait to show you the projects. But first let me show you the complete finished project!

Day 9: Homemade


20130309-172014.jpg

A few years back there were a rash of crib recalls. We were one of those people who were stuck with a recalled crib and a issue on what to do with it. Bug and Diva both survived in said recalled crib. And certain people in this family felt SB would be safe as well. But I had a different opinion. So I mailed off the required pieces and waited for our new crib. And I just couldn’t throw away the old one. It just had to much life in it. So I took the springs, spray painted them and hung them on our wall. Added some family photos, favorite sayings and bible quotes and stuck them up there with some clothes pins that had been decorated with paint samples to coordinate with our living room. I loved how it turned out.
