A while back we got Nick a new bed at a yard sale. It cost about $15 and it was a bunkbed that had been cut in half. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for and Nick really likes it. Now that he is not scared to climb in and out of it he is doing great. You can see I put the crib bumper around it as he is a wild sleeper and I was worried about his huge noggin. We call it his "Cave".
I painted this mural when Nick was supposed to be a girl. The base color is a beautiful periwinkle, girlie but not enough to change the entire room. The turtle is my pride and joy, Nick's favorite too!
We reorganized the room today when I decided that Nick has WAY too many toys and he needs some help in deciding what to play with. So we got rid of about 5 garbage bags and some other large stuff and put his train table and one train in his bedroom. What a difference that makes!
The "CAVE" and his train. I wanted to make it a reading nook but that hasn't really worked out too well, so it is just a fun cave. We got rid of all of the other toys that were in here, Nick has already started playing more!
You can almost read our "rules" on the back of the door.
1) Show Respect! (our hardest learned lesson yet)
2) Be Kind
3) Be Truthful
We figured everything would pretty much fall under one of these categories and it has worked really well for us.
And lastly, a great video of Nick from tonight. He took a quick cat nap while being punished in his bed and therefore was up WAY too late. This is what happens when he stays up past his bed time - he was literally crawling the walls! Jeff got home from work and we couldn't stop laughing while watching this video. I hope you enjoy the good laugh!
