Without seeing the list of robot-bedroom recommendations Whitney put together while away at a conference, I bought nearly everything on her list. I can’t decide if she totally gets me or I’m just a bit cliche. Though I had to — and did — draw the line somewhere, I think I actually exceeded her recommendations in an effort to make my sons’ bedroom just like their old one but a tiny bit better.
New room pics
Both big boys noticed the boldly colored robot pillows right away. All photos of Holden are of him as a giant blur running past me and rolling around on the new striped rug. They demanded to know, “Where did these new pillows come from?” and I told them I got them as a surprise for the new house.
As they went to sleep the first night, happily, in their brand new room, they asked, “If you got us the pillows, what did Daddy get us?” It was all I could do not to yell in their faces, “HE GOT YOU THE HOUSE!” but instead I just laughed a little and said he chose the rug.
My actual (gulp) shopping list
Wondering what the old room looked like? Photo essay from nursery to big boy bedroom.
So, how’d I do? (Hint: Now’s when you tell me I did good and tell me to stop looking for new stuff.)
Disclosure: I get no discount for shopping at Land of Nod and I bought all this stuff with my own money. You are welcome to come on over and see it. If YOU buy something through the photos, we do get a few cents. That would be super nice!
