I redid the big ones room yesterday as a surprise. I painted till my fingers were gonna fall off to get it done by the time the bus came. Covering up the brightest blue ever known to man was enough to make me wanna beer at 11am.
But that's not why I cried. I cried because her space has been so similar for her whole 11 years. The same cute stuff hanging on the walls...and she didn't wanna keep any of it. She was ready for different things. More grown up. After I got it all put back together and stood back to look..I was sad. It went from little-ish girl..to teenager in one day.
She died when she saw it. Screamed and squealed. And then it was all worth it. The 1000 squats I did going up and down the walls..the overpriced tools from the paint store..the OCD fits I pitched hanging things evenly..and the tears I shed that my kid is a little bit more mature than I'd like her to be.
