I just have to share some of the funny things they say (through tears), when I *gasp* put them down for their naps. "Mommy!!!!" "Daddy!!!" "Athena (dog)!" "Grandmaaaaa!!!" "I not tired!" "Open the door!!!!" "My fwoat (throat) is broken!!!!" and other random, contrary expressions like: "I'm nothing!!!" "I hate the horse book!" and on and on. After a few minutes things get quite and I take a peek in their rooms to find they have surrendered to their exhaustion-- totally cashed out, asleep.
Having no children of our own yet, it feels funny to write a blog post about kid rooms, but there are just so many adorable options out there and many of you, my dear readers, are parents... perhaps needing a bit of inspiration in that area. So, here are a few pics of lovely rooms and fun ideas:
Cover of "Children's Rooms Stockholm" by Jeu de Pomme. How cute is the vintage baby pram?
Fun vintage ring toss games! I think vintage dart boards would also look stellar in an older child's room. source
Oh this is a room after my own heart. Love these colors and the hoop wall art! source
Vintage flash cards and pages from vintage books (framed or hanging on a clothesline, as pictured) source.
"Bonne Nuit," so sweet. source
Very clever! Amanda Soule, of Soule Mama, found this armoire on the side of the road and tacked fabric to the inside where it was missing glass.
Great room for a tween girl. source
This alpentine bedroom is so cute! Love the 70's wall mural. source
Great vintage knick knacks! source
Doll quilts on the wall make this room so homey and cute. source
