why do 7 year olds always have to pose?
It started with these hand written notes, you know the ones with backwards letters and misspelled words. Yes, I started to find those kinds of notes taped to the outside of Max's door. It seemed everyday he needed to announce something; Open, Closed, No Mommy, No Dogs, etc., etc.
So this weekend, while he was out of town, I painted his door with a couple coats of chalkboard paint. I just taped off 4-inches around the border, lightly sanded with a sanding sponge and rolled on 4 coats. I love that every morning after he has left for school, I will pass by his room and he has left some kind of sweet note for me. I also love the fact that he is spelling on his own, writing and communicating. This is what us mothers call a win-win.
I decided to keep going with the "boys only" theme. I bought this wire curtain rod from Ikea and these painters drop clothes from Home Depot. I did not even hem them. I just folded them over and clipped. I am just lazy like that...
Yes, they need to be ironed. Yes, I tried but drop clothes are near impossible to iron. So it is, what I like to call, "good enough".
This is what his room looked like tonight before bed...
He told me that Mommy's would "Always be Allowed".
*I recommend using light-weight fabrics for this wire rod. My drop clothes are almost too heavy.
