I'm really impressed with how many of you mentioned Pottery Barn or Pottery Barn Kids when commenting on our playroom... you know your stuff! We did indeed get the wall unit, baskets, chalkboard labels, table and chairs, and rug from Pottery Barn Kids. The room gets more use than almost any other in the whole house, so we decided to get exactly what we wanted and what I have drooled over in the catalog for years! Organization is really important to Rick and I both, so this was a great way to keep the toys in order, while still keeping a main and very visible room in our house looking nice. When you walk in our front door the living room/dining room (playroom) are the first things you see off to the right. We just love the way it all turned out!
I'm also glad a few of you noticed Riley's hair in the first picture of the Easter post. As I wrote, that photo was taken on Saturday morning, while I was in the Tri-Cities. Rick braided Riley's hair all on his own! The week before, our nanny Sarah had braided Riley's hair while Rick was at work. That night, he looked it over, played around with it a bit, figured out how it worked, and now is a certified Hair Braider... it's like getting a new badge for our parenting sashes, like in scouts. I'm still working on my Wall Painting badge, Veggie at Every Dinner badge, and many others.
What a great daddy!
Okay, enough procrastinating... I'm off to write two papers for class tonight.
