Give-Away: Wall Graphic (Uprinting.com)
As we've mentioned here and there, we moved into a new (to us) house a few months ago. This is the first place where the Infant Bibliophile has had a room of his own. I had high hopes of creating a fantastic, ultra-cool construction vehicle themed bedroom for him. We even bought a little art projector and downloaded dump truck images, which I planned to sketch onto the wall for him. But then a funny thing happened. Our co-sleeping, absolutely-refused-to-fall-asleep-in-his-own-crib toddler wanted to sleep in his own room, on the very first night. And the next, and the next. The walls in there are light blue, with yellow bubbles scattered about. He'd point to the walls and shout, "yaya! bubba!" (translation: yellow bubbles!)(further translation: "why in the world would I want to sleep anywhere else, when there are yellow bubbles on these walls?!") So, we didn't change a thing. The art projector sits in the closet, the printed images somewhere in my quilting room, and my dreams of a perfectly coordinated little boy's room have met the fate of my goal to unpack all of our boxes speedily. But, a few months have passed, and I haven't heard him mention the bubbles in awhile. I think he's ready to move on.
