In an effort to not let Piglet make the connection between a new baby and getting kicked out of her room and bed, we have been planning her new room together for the last two months. When I first asked her what color she wanted for the walls, she said “black”. I convinced her that was too dark and asked her again. “Purple” was her next choice – I can live with that (and Russ is learning to). Since then, whenever she is wearing something purple or sees something purple, she gets REALLY excited and says, “it matches my new room”….and I mean REALLLLLLY excited.
So today is the day that she officially moves into her new room after months of anticipation. Her old room has been stripped bare so that it looks unappealing until July when it’s time to decorate again (who am I kidding, we’ll be good if I can wait until April to decorate once I know whether we are going for pink or blue this time).
Her “new room” (which is what she calls it every time) is really cute and all grown-up. Russ is slowly getting accustomed to the extremely girlie nature of it, but he did play a part – he panted the walls purple. So I give you the former guest room AKA Piglet’s big girl room:
The first place Piglet went when she got home from school was her “new room” (which she has apparently been talking about nonstop at school according to her teacher today). I think she likes it!
We’ll see how her first night in her new room goes.
