Last week, TJ and I went out for some much needed mother/son time. What I’ve realized is that when you have multiple children, you have to give them individual time. That way they don’t have to fight for attention. Our day together consisted of a trip to my chiropractor (I think that terrified him) then we made a trip to IKEA.
While at IKEA, we had lunch and we talked about how he feels being the oldest and having to share everything with his brothers. That’s when he shared his feelings of having his own room. First he said that Nick and Bren are best friends. And I thought that was odd. I told him that they are all friends and that they are brothers. He said “yeah I know that, but they are BEST FRIENDS”. He also said they are babies and that he wants his own ‘stuff’ away from them. So, after a little more talking and eating, I decided to walk around IKEA with a new project in mind…. Giving my “baby” his own room!
I’ve already had a few images in mind of what I wanted their room to look like
Can you tell “I” love blue?!
The last image (above) was for their playroom. But, now that TJ wants his own room, I’m going to try to use it as inspiration in Nick and Bren’s room because I’ve already purchased 5yrds of that striped fabric dangit!
I’ll show you what we found at IKEA hopefully tomorrow after my before and after post of my dresser. Oh, and he also picked out a room that he loves because it’s (in his own words) FANCY! I can’t wait to get started on his room. Although it kinda makes me a little emotional thinking about him as a “BIG BOY”. Well, I guess it’s time. He will be 6 this year for goodness sake!
