I tried to make my boys' room look like this:But no matter what I do it ends up looking something like this:
That's the time machine from Dr. Who. Whatever.

  1. This is what comes from having human beings for children. Next time, you've got to do that differently.

  2. By the way, "next time" means "next life," not "next child."

  3. You know, if your boy's bedroom looked like the one above, I'd be forced to conclude that your son was absolutely neurotic.


    (And had a neurotic for a mother.)

  4. What kid lays on the bed with a ball NEXT to him and read quietly? And with a room like that why does his mother let him be on the bed with his shoes on?
    It's a mystery.

  5. The top picture is a boy with his shoes on the bed! Boring.
    Now the bottom picture is flowing with creative power! Do you look at it as wonderful? I hope so. I love the tent too.

  6. What's wrong with being neurotic? And even people with neurosis can "let it fly" sometimes and let the kids on the bed with shoes. As long as the shoes are clean, of course!

  8. Additional proof that advertisers want us to buy into a reality that does not exist.

  9. Is it neurotic to wonder if your child will become a narcissist if you hang a large silver tint matted and framed picture of him over his bed?

  10. Isn't that the truth! This is why in our family, we decided to favor the female gender. One disaster zone is enough. Somehow, even though the twins are still messy, their room still manages to look "cute" -- probably the purple walls.

  13. I didn't even see the boy on the bed in the 1st picture. I actually went back and looked.

    thank you for curing my own neurosis. my kids' rooms look much like the 2nd picture 99% of the time. i'm over it.

  14. Girl! I know what you are going through. Kade's is the exact same way! AAAGH I have given in and decided it is not a battle worth fighting. It was cute when he was little and I was in charge, now he is too big for me to care. The good thing, I can shut the door.
