The Playroom

The playroom is done....FINALLY!!! This was my big Christmas present to Brynlie, with contributions from Papa Roy, Grammy, Nonee, Gigi and KK. Gena and I painted on this room and furniture for countless hours over the weekends. I will admit it got a little out of hand, well maybe more than a little!
Dad and Janet will be visiting soon so I went ahead and converted Brynlie's toddler bed to a full size bed. Every time I do something like that it upsets me! I walk into that room now and it looks like a big girl lives here! With the big bed and out of diapers, I've decided I'm going to let her keep her paci until she starts Kindergarten! I don't care if people point and stare in Target. I was joking with Gena that she'll probably come home and say she wants to sleep in her new bed and this time around it'll be me saying "No, Mommy's bed." She's just growing up too fast. Thankfully she is the sweetest, prettiest, smartest, and funniest little girl I've ever laid my eyes on and I am so blessed to be her Mommy.
Her gymnastics coach told me on Monday night at class that she is exceptionally smart for her age, and the other mom's were telling me how strong she is. She really does have upper body strength that is obvious when she's on the bars and rings. We went over to watch the big girls do a cheer/dance routine at the end of our class and guess who was right up there on the front line dancing and clapping for the big girls! I laugh at her every single day! When she is not with me, I honestly feel like a piece of me is missing.
I took her to Hospice Saturday morning to meet Aunt Janice and Uncle Johnny for the first time. She provided some well needed comic relief for the deep sadness everyone is facing with Uncle Tom's health. Between Friday night and Saturday the entire family was together. He still recognizes us, he held my hand and reached up to touch Brynlie.

Over the top??? No. I'm thinking we really need to add stems to the flowers on the chalkboard wall.

WOW!!! That looks amazing! I was looking at Brynlie's bed and it looks like we took the footboard pieces off and shouldn't have. Maybe he will get to use his bed after all.
