We spent some time looking around the room and asking ourselves some questions. Here’s what we concluded:
There is resounding agreement that the room is definitely too crowded and there is stuff we need to get rid of. E would like things that match to be displayed and things that don’t match to be put away. N and I agreed the color scheme is a bit overwhelming, although J would say the colors make a melody.
We answered the crucial questions as such: we’ll remove the extra dresser, the alphabet cards and stuff animal bins. All of those things can find another home elsewhere. We’ll keep E’s jewelry box, the baptism certificates, new bedspreads, one dresser per kid, and each kid’s lamp. We had a few other “maybe” ideas about the rug and artwork, but there’s no rush on those.
