Gwen’s little corner in our bedroom is getting dull and boring with its white walls. I’ve been wanting to put wall decals but the ones I saw at Youji&Me is pricey for just stickers.
When there are babies and kids living in the house, it’s important to make it baby-proof or kid-proof. Kids can go wild with their games sometimes and you can never tell an accident waiting to happen.
Here are some tips on baby proofing your home:
Who said changing rooms is easy? We already moved to our new family room at the second floor (we weren’t able to sleep in here first because of the smell of paint). This room was previously a maid’s room/guest room, but since it will be too difficult for us to go one floor up because of Gwen, we had this repainted and made the room devoid of the old furnishings like the single bed, chairs, etc… We had an empty slate.
We just laid the two mattresses on the floor, we need two because we’re now sleeping horizontally and we don’t want our feet hanging loosely so we added an additional mattress. Aside from the bed, furnishings include 1 cabinet, a dresser, and a fan. So bare that we can even put one or two cocktail table so that we have extra storage for our laptops. It’s so hard to use the laptop without a stable surface.
But one thing that keeps us from buying new furniture is because we’re not using this room permanently. As much as I want to buy this glass side table at Accent Tables Boutique, I just remind myself that I should channel our funds to more useful and important things, like an aircon!
Since Gwen was born, we’ve been sleeping at my parents’ room since the other room we prepared for baby is still smelly because of the paint. We had it repainted a few weeks before she’s born, major fail because the paint used is not odorless and the room has only a small window. My parents, on the other hand, used our room as a couple located at the rooftop, we simply switched rooms, hehe…
Now, we’re planning to move in to the newly repainted room so that Nanay can go back to theirs. Problem is, the new room is so bare it needs new modern furniture, especially a large bed. We co-sleep with Gwen so a queen or king-sized bed is my choice. Another must-buy for the room is a new air conditioning unit, Gwen sweats a lot and she’s used to sleeping in an air conditioned room (parents’ room). And summer is fast approaching and it’s getting hotter and hotter.
Sigh, need more moolah to cover for additional family needs.
