Kid's room makeover in blue and red
It usually happens fast and it's not just the milk teeth that are gone that give it away. It's the not so subtle way that they tell you they don't want you to kiss them in front of other children at school, that they can walk on their own to class and leave you behind the school gates. The unexpected questions about 'democracy'. And even telling you straight forward 'mom, that's embarrassing' when you dance a little crazy. Yes, our little one is not so little any more.
Our son is now 7 and a half. Or 8 as he will happily correct me (why do they want to grow up faster?). Although not yet a teen, George is definitely not a toddler. He's like an old soul this one. Well, sometimes. So as he is getting older, his room needs to also 'grow' with him.
