When the kids are away

... I rearrange stuff!

My mother-in-law took the kids, so today I zoomed in on Memphis' room.

We don't own our home, but we rent a cozy 3 bedroom townhouse.  Hubby and I share the 'master' bedroom and each of the kids have their own room.  I'm happy that we can provide them each with their own space.  It's small, but at least it's all theirs!

We got a hand-me-down double bed for Ruby, so we've tried to make the best of it.  I moved her dresser to her closet and it all seems to work.  I'd like to get her a cute valance for the window and a new comforter at some point in the near future.  And the plan is to paint the head/foot boards PURPLE (her favorite color).  She loves her big girl bed and when I babysat my niece, Piper, last weekend I was able to put the girls in Ruby's room together... it was so cute.  Reminded me of the sleepovers I had with my cousins growing up.

She's so girly! This is a close up of one of her princess dresses

One of her Lalaloopsy dolls (I think I'm more excited about these than she is!)

More girly dress-up stuff

Some of her books (Disney Princess, of course)

Her My Little Pony box... so happy these never really went away!

As for Memphis' room, we managed to squeeze in a bunk bed last year.  I always wanted a bunk bed growing up, and even if nobody actually uses the top bunk, it's a cool place the kids like to hang out sometimes.  I repositioned it today and put it in front of the window... I hate blocking the window, but it gives him more open space to play.  I think it looks okay, and alot of the time the curtains are drawn to make his room dark enough to watch movies (my kids have quite the VHS/DVD collection!).

I'm really excited for Memphis to come home tomorrow and see what I've done with his room.  I should have taken a "before" picture because it's actually quite a big change!

Every little boy needs a shark head in their room, right?
