Prior to having kids I was quite judgmental. I can’t remember how many times I uttered the phrase “I’ll never do that or let my kid’s do that” while watching other parents dealing with their children. For those of you nodding, Uh Huh and waving your bibles saying “preach it sister” you’ll probably also agree you’ve done all the things you would never do with your kids….and more!
Well confession time….. here is one more of the things on my long lists of I will never that I recently did. Number 56 on the list was absolutely no Superhero, Hello Kitty, Barbie or Nick Jr. character bedding and bedroom paraphernalia of any kind. Okay so Nick Jr wasn’t on the list as I did not even know such a channel existed prior to kids. Anyway you get my drift. Toys, occasional t-shirts, underwear and PJ’s of such characters were okay but an entire bedroom outfit…no way! How tacky…hee!
The girl’s room has always been a pretty yellow and Pottery barn green with PB butterfly bedding and curtains to boot. Blake received the safari room with stuffed animal trophy heads, faux fur duvets, a cheetah throw rug and denim blue coordinating sheets and curtaining. Adorable right! I thought so. Love the trophy heads…have a look...
Well a friend of mine just gave me ALL of her 9 year old son’s Spiderman bedding, curtains, huge picture, and a rug for Blake. The result...you tell me what 5 year old boy would not be ecstatic?! So out with the trophy heads (boo-hoo) and in with Spidey.
My thought if it makes him happy and it is free what is one more Never turned Did It!
What are the nevers that you have given into or if you don’t have kids as you watch those of us that do what are your nevers? Be honest…this is a safe blog space!
