Sophie's bedroom windows face the east. In the mornings, the sun comes streaming in through the windows. Perfect on school days when she needs to get up early, but annoying on the weekends when we want her to sleep a little later. She had some of the roll down blinds, but they were a mess and didn't roll anymore. I had ideas for heavier, darker curtains... something to block the sun... but just hadn't gotten it done. So Grandma bought her some new white ones.
But Sophie's like her momma... we aren't crazy about plain white... we like a little color... we like a little fun.
So Momma got out the Sharpies... and let my girl go to work...
We gave Lawson part of the old ones and let him decorate those. He was nice, and let Mommy help...
I'm not sure where she even learned about peace signs, but they're one of her favorite things now.
Mommy had visions of a happy little outdoor scene... sunshine, trees, flowers, grass...
But these aren't Mommy's windows. (I kept reminding myself of that.)
Are there classier things we could have done? Absolutely.
But would she love those as much as she loves these? I doubt it.
The other window blind is just white right now. She's still deciding how she wants to decorate it. :)
