Oh, I’m conflicted…. I should be rushing around, cleaning out, getting ready for the end of school madness. I’m not. Bria has hives. Today she had the whines and I promised to eat lunch with the big girls. Instead of mopping… I decided to sit down and research a bed for Jack.

I know I’m always behind the ball. I may have seen it before, but now that I have a boy who will need his own space… I’ve found Ohdeedoh. Seriously. I didn’t need to find that site. I could stare all day and then wonder what to do with my stuff.

So I made blocks for Jack’s room. I’ve picked up a couple of stuffed cars. Ray is working on building a bed. I thought I had an idea in my head… sort of a mish mash of retro little boy stuff. Then, I saw my friend Ginny’s blog. My plans just went to hell in a hand basket.

I am not looking for the perfect pottery barn room. I have no idea what will be Jack’s favorite thing in the world. He might like geckos or Bat Man or heaven forbid the University of Tennessee. He might want cars or airplanes or baseball or football. He might like whatever we tell him to like. I want him to have a nice space. I want to clean up the girls’ spaces…AGAIN. I want to magically have Ginny’s talent for handmade decorating and sewing and well everything else I’m not that great at. Most of all… I want my kids to pick their crap up so when it does look nice it stays like that. Trouble is, I don’t pick my crap up that often. Maybe this post should have been titled Pick Up The Crap.

If you have super fantastic ideas for a boys room or a girls room or well a way to make all of us pick up our crap please pass it on.
