As I've shared with many of you many times...my dear sweet baby boy has definite opinions regarding my decor! Thank goodness he actually shares his Mom's decor style or we really could have some problems. He may only be six...but he knows how he wants his house to look! I have a lot of "things." But that little guy will certainly be able to pick some little new thing out that I may have added!
So here's a few of his little decor funnies as of late.
Two weeks ago, I broke down and went to look at a big old Victorian home that's for sale in town. It's a five bedroom two bath house priced at $69,000! I knew for that price it would need a lot of fixing. But I really just had to look. I took Kaden along! THAT was a treat. We inspected the entire house. Ladies...I loved it! Absolutely loved it. But for a single Mama on a limited budget...it just would require way to much money to fix. My son had all kinds of opinions....here are a few:
"Well Mom...it really didn't need anything major fixed!" (where we looking at the same house?)
As we are standing in the living room.."Mom where would we put our Christmas tree?" These are important questions!
Then after we had looked at it all..."Mom lets go outside and talk about this!"
Once home..."Mom lets sit down and talk about what we liked about the first house and the second house." ( we looked at another the realtor thought we might like too...not so much!)
I was cracking up and going crazy for about a week after as he had all sorts of input on this house. Ohhh ladies...if I could afford to fix it back to it's original splendor...I'd snatch that house up in a heart beat. But I just cant afford it! But I can guarantee I'll be dreaming about it for a long time to come!
THEN....a few other little decor funnies from the kid.
He and I were laying in my bed one morning and he asked if I liked the bedroom in the picture on my wall. I said yes, I'd love that bedroom. How about you would you like it. His reply:
"Well it's kind of girlie, especially the curtains. But I could probably find a few pieces that would work!"
Seriously...this kid is watching WAY to much HGTV!
Kaden spent New Years Eve at my sister Beths. Beth has two little boys 9 and 5. At night the boys were going to sleep on the floor in my sisters bedroom. She doesn't get "cartoons" in her room. Kaden wasn't worried and suggested they watch HGTV! They all agreed it was a good idea. My sister said she was just giggling listening to Kaden, who's six, and his nine year old cousin Landon discussing houses as they watched. Which ones they liked, which they didn't, and what they did and didn't like about each! Hey...I'm not complaining...it's WAY better than watching that stupid Sponge Bob cartoon!!
Happy New Year everyone!
