In the past couple of years, our daughter have changed a lot. It is not much on the physical aspect as she is tiny like me but emotionally and mentally, she has grown a lot. Before, she never liked her hair being brushed so I had to tell her that I will cut it if she doesn't take care of it, that is when she would brush it. From that scenario, she is now become so conscious of her looks, always looking at the mirror and fixing her own hair. She also gotten into the mood of organizing, cleaning , and now that she has her new bedroom, she became so much interested in interior designing.
This is the pattern that inspired her to go for a geometric theme on her bedroom.
Now, her dresser is always organized and tidy. She is really becoming a little lady.
She does DIY projects on her spare time this summer. She did this cute jewelry hanger/holder which I thought was very chic and unique. She used the rocks that our neighbor gave her and glued them on the frame.
The alarm clock that our family friend sent her for her birthday matches perfectly with the bamboo accent we bought for her room.
This is the desk I had in our bedroom at our old house and she wanted to give it a new look so my husband sanded it and we helped her paint it. She did most of the work on the desk, I only helped her paint with the white.
I find it amusing to see how our kids are just like mini version of ourselves. She constantly changes the arrangement of her desk, every time I go on her bedroom, the arrangement is different and that is just like me. This is how she arranged it before.
Our former neighbor, invited them for a movie night yesterday and gave her a gift card for her birthday. So today, we took her to Target for a little shopping trip and she bought the lamp and the pencil organizer. Now that she bought some accessories like the lamp and pencil organizer, she changed it again into this.
She also bought this geometric design planes on a frame to hang above her beds. This year, I started the Good Point chart for them where in if they help with the chores around the house, they get good points and those points can be converted into cash. Not only it is working great for me but it is also teaching them the value of hard work.
I was laughing when she was paying for her merchandise today because she looked sick, she looked like she was going to throw up as she was handing the cashier of her money lol. I also found it very effective to let them manage their own "little money" while shopping as they get the understanding of how hard earned money works. They don't really want to spend it to something that isn't valuable lol.
So now her bedroom is almost complete. The only thing missing is the desk chair that she wanted from Office Depot. We were not able to get it because we ran out of time today and the space of of our CRV's trunk won't accommodate her chair.
Not having air condition at the first floor of our new house is so unbearable for my husband as he is not used to hot weather. It doesn't really bother me as I am used to this kind of weather back home and besides, we have Ozeri fans in most of our rooms downstairs so it is comfortable. His plan is to get a big AC unit for downstairs but for now that we can't afford it yet, these fans are life savers.amazon for $99.95 with free shipping.
