When we moved into our house three years and six months ago, the builders said,
‘Don’t paint for one year because of nail pops.’
Gary believes they said 10 years.
I am not even kidding.
So, anyway, we have not painted.
I threw a few things up on the walls.
I bought a few rugs.
The house looks nice.
Simple and nice.
White. Very white.
I am not a fan of white…
But any way,
recently I was reading a real life friend from college’s blog
and she mentioned (and showed) a room re-do she did for her daughters birthday.
I thought it was brilliant.
What a great idea.
I thought I would do that for Kaish for his Birthday
and then, like ten seconds later,
I remembered my motto for life.
You know, the ‘life is short’ motto?
So, I decided we would do it pronto.
I called my Mama, and my sister, and Juan.
He told me to stop yelling (!)
and then he told me ‘of course i love to help.’
He is still working on his English.
Betsy, who rivals me in abundant enthusiasm and impulse..
We decided on an animal theme since Kaish loves animals.
It was top secret.
We drew up designs and poured over ideas,
and 4 days later, as soon as Kaish left for school,
the crew arrived.
Baby Brooke and Levi?
When Kaish came home from school, I was a little nervous.
but when he opened the door,
We could have waited.
I mean, January isn’t too far off,
But, you know what?
Life is short.
Making Kaish feel special and wonderful on a regular day…
(Quite a Surprise)
I don’t feel like editing too much tonight.(So take them with a grain of salt)
