When we moved into our current house, Mister Man was two and a half. It was beyond time for him to move from a crib into a “big boy” room. He was our first child, so we didn’t know really what to expect, but we did our best to figure out how to organize his room so that it would grow with him as he aged.
When choosing the furniture and decor, I tried to remember what it was like when I was a child. What did I love about my room? What did I wish I’d had differently? We took those things into account, and I think we’ve been pretty successful.
Are there things we’d do differently? Absolutely. Growing up, I did sleepovers all the time, and my friends always had to sleep on a trundle bed that was a pain to bring in and out. My friends who had bigger beds where we could all just pile in? I was jealous of them. As a parent now, I wish we’d gone the other route, however, and left Mister Man in a twin size bed.
While his room is big enough for the full size bed, it would be nice to have the extra play space that a twin would offer. And don’t get me started in trying to find a bed set for a full size bed. Apparently most people don’t believe children ever have anything larger than a twin. That said, I love the storage that the full size bed allows us.
So come on, take a tour of Mister Man’s bedroom and how it works for us as part of this week’s #VlogMom prompt.
What makes your child’s bedroom work for you? Or what do you wish you’d done differently?
