Next month my mother in law will be moving out of our home and back up north to be near her friends and family. The boys have masked their sadness with the joy of finally getting their own rooms. Surprisingly what I thought was going to be a fight over who got what room turned out to be worked out between the two of them with no parent involvement.
With the separation of the boys furniture and belongings now is the time to do redecorating and some much needed painting. The first order of business is to do rearrange our family room. We have decided because we have a large exercise machine, a treadmill, and a weight bench to turn the whole room into an exercise room. This means we will need to move our credenza desk out of the family room. We are thinking that even though it is large it may be something Buddy would like in his room to house his trophies and tons of knick knacks he seems to collect.
With removing one of the dressers and one of the twin beds this may actually look kinda cool in his room. I just asked Buddy and he LOVES the idea!
We are trying to decide if we should get Nicky his own desk or whether he would prefer a shelf of some sort. Nick and I looked at desk together and he liked some of the corner desks with hutch or the L shaped desk.
He is going to have to make one decision first before we make a desk decision and that is whether he wants to keep his twin bed or use our queen size bed. He seems to be leaning towards the queen which would pretty much rule out a new desk (better for the pocket book).
I wish we owned our home because one thing I’ve always wanted to do for Nick is to paint a mural of a baseball field on his wall behind his bed. With the stands in the background, and the green field laid out before him. I thought it would look cool if he then had some green bedding and a life size image of Carlos Beltran when you walked in. One of these days I may attempt such a feat but I’m afraid we are going to have to own our home first. For now he has a life size poster of my favorite baseball player hanging above his bed.
