J started out today reading her National Geographic Kids magazine. Later on, she helped W get to his computer game page and made soup for brunch. After we dropped W off at preschool, J made a photo collage for her friend, S, from dance. S had a bunch of pics on her website - including a few baby photos - and J got really creative with them. She printed it out and gave it to S at dance that afternoon. She also updated her own website today with new photos and icons. And now that K has an Ipod Nano, J got to have her old mp3 player, so she's been all into that lately.
I decided to change J's room around so she has more private "girly" space. She currently shares the bedroom with W, while K has her own bedroom. (W crawls into bed w/B and me anyway and couldn't care less about having any bedroom, actually). In a year or so, that room will go to W, and K will share the room with J again. J was really upset the other day over the fact that she'll never have her own room and hates being the middle child. So, I feel she deserves some new embellishments. She outlined a plan for how she wants things to be and is eager to get started on it with me. This will involve a trip to Ikea for some cool new stuff. She was estimating measurements to figure where the new bed should be and how that would correspond with the dresser and space for her table.
Yes, I'm getting her a new bed. Their old beds are taken-apart-bunkbeds and they're too huge for the room. This is what we've decided on in white. W will use the underbed and when K moves back in, I'll get her the same one. The underbed part turns into lots of storage when the mattress is taken out. I'm picking it up this weekend, along with a hanging canopy, a small rug, a floor lamp, a small table and 2 chairs, and a few storage pieces.
