Well, when we were at Kohl's, I rounded a corner and saw something that literally made me stop in my tracks. They had the cutest bathroom stuff, perfect for my boys (who I had recently realized, though they hadn't complained about it yet, were probably outgrowing the current rubber duckie theme). Pam rounded the corner behind me and stopped, too. I didn't even have to say anything. She just looked at me and said, "Sweetie, I can get your birthday present a little early this year if you want." Yes, please!!!
...so I came home with all the stuff I needed to make the boys' bathroom a little more age-appropriate. I got it all put together one day while they were out, and their squeals of excitement upon seeing it were exactly what I had hoped. :) Isn't it cute?
Now, as cute as the shower curtain and toothbrush holder are, you must know that the best part is the wall art. I had big plans to try to make some monsters to that matched the ones on the shower curtain, to go in the frames that used to hold rubber duckies. But I hadn't done them yet, and until then just had some scrapbook paper in the frames. A few minutes after seeing the "new" bathroom, Micah brought me a picture of a monster that he had drawn. "This is for the frames," he said. "I knew they were empty because you wanted us to draw monsters for them." Of course I did!!! How had I not already thought of that?? So we got busy, and ended up with two monsters made by each kid. And I love it, much more than I would have if I'd done it myself.
Happy early-birthday to me! Thanks, Pam!
