The next day, I noticed that she had taken down all of the fish from her walls. I told her that she could have a new room, but it would have to be for her Birthday. I wasn't about to paint and re-decorate a room, just because. She agreed to make it her Birthday present, so we have spent the past couple months picking out colors.
Mary has great taste, and knew exactly what she wanted.
I spent 8 hours yesterday painting and decorating, in order to get her room done by her Birthday, which is today.
It was not easy, considering I had 5 kids to take care of, and Ben was working. It took some serious juggling, and tons of energy and time, but I got it done. I must love my daughter. :)
I didn't let Mary see her room until this morning, after she opened her presents. Her squeal said it all. Mary does not squeal, so that was a huge reaction coming from her. She absolutely loves it! I must say, I think it is adorable.
Happy Birthday Mary!
|She really wanted a white down comforter for her bed, so she got that for a Birthday present. The fun curtains were another present. She LOVES those...of course.|
|The two things she wanted the most were Chinese lanterns and a saucer chair. She has style!|
|Another thing she really wanted was lights. That part was easy, considering lights are for sale everywhere right now.|
|All of those pictures are of Taylor Swift. They came with her new album.|
The doorbell is a huge hit! Mary thinks it is great, and so do her brothers. They love to ring it, and she loves to have them ring it. It cracks me up.
So there you have it...a room fit for a 10 year old.
Excuse my while I go cry about time going too fast, and freak out with the fact that I have a child in the double digits.
