Speaking of clean rooms, I thought I would brag on Jonah. Last week, they asked to watch a TV show. To which I replied, "It's clean up time. After your room is clean we can watch the show." At first, Jonah wanted me to help him, but I balked saying that Elisabeth needed my help more. But I told him to just "start with the Trio Blocks and then put the books on the shelf. If you still need help when I'm finished with Elisabeth, I'll help you." Well, I don't know if the stars were aligned or he was extremely motivated or what, but before I was finished with Elisabeth in her room, Jonah asked me to come take a look at his room. And, lo and behold, it was clean. Somewhat dubious, I asked him, "So, if I open your closet I won't find things just thrown in there, right?" He indicated not. I took a peak just to be sure and no mess. (Woohoo!) He did a great job with no help from me - I'm so proud!
So here's what their "clean" rooms look like - it's not Pottery Barn, but it works.
Elisabeth's Sassy Lilac room:
|The Sally Huss print I got from ebay - I love it!|
|This side of the room still needs something - Fancy Nancy would not approve|
|The chair was mine from my childhood and the lamp is from IKEA|
|The unicorn picture hung on my wall as a child and I decorated the dressup mirror|
|I just added the the flowers and butterflies to her curtains - decor from her party|
Here is Jonah's:
|Glow in the dark stars and planets. Hanging shelf from IKEA.|
|Pirates, space, Star Wars, Atlantis LEGO, Star Trek and lamp from nursery.|
|He just got this poster from Grammie - I didn't realize how big it was, but we hung it.|
|Hand-made airplane from family, my art on the wall and LEGO's galore.|
|This shelf I painted and had hanging in his nursery in our first house.|
