Oh yes, and an important development for Meredith. Her long-awaited dream of having her own room came true. I let down my defenses for a moment and agreed that she could choose her own paint color ... whatever she wanted. So, this is what we got! Actually, she did let me talk her down a few shades of pink. She originally wanted it much darker than this. One night when Kevin worked late I painted the room all by myself and I do think that it turned out nicely. We ordered a picture from the Costco image gallery--which I love!!--and hung up a few other pieces of art we inherited from a friend. Said friend also gave us this Pottery Barn bedspread, that her daughter had outgrown. And wha-la!
We decided to buy this trundle bed for Meredith because we still want Clara to be able to have sleepovers with her sister. And, in fact, nearly every Friday night they have a special sleepover together. I want them to keep the bond they developed from sharing a room these past five years. Clara is always asking, "Is it Friday night yet?"
How did I get such girly girls? They are super into nails and love to give each other pedicures. Actually, I can't complain. Meredith can give a pretty decent foot massage and I have been the happy beneficiary on several occasions!
