Evolution of a Room
We've gone through a lot, this room and I. And now it is ready for a baby. Once I made the decision to go with the robots. And the robot bank was mine. I returned the deer bedding. Once that was done I had much less anxiety. I started cleaning out the crib and putting baby clothes in the dresser. We started putting things on the shelves and tossing even more. The under crib space is used for storing our new suitcases (officially carry-on size), the air mattress, extra paint, and some other odds and ends. There is still a ways to go in purging and organizing, but the room is ready.
I have made peace with the fact that my home will never be "finished." It will never be 100% clean and organized. That's life. I'm ok with that. Most of the time. Here is the reveal:
We hung the Robots Fighting painting under the existing shelves filled with some of our childhood favorites and toys we've collected.
The monkey mat is living here for now, but it's kind of like a pillow friend for an infant and will likely move around the apartment as a soft place to lay the baby.
I found the mobile on Amazon for $9.99, which is the perfect price, since once he can pull up I'll probably have to take it down. It plays Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
I'm still not sure about how and where to hang the art. I like the Monko cells and how they match. The one in the window needs to go somewhere, it is usually stacked with the other art we don't know what to do with or don't have room for. The fisherman boards don't really go, but again, not sure where to move them.
