Fast forward another 2 years after that and we were expecting our daughter, Thalia...affectionately known to many as Podlette, Pod, Poddance J Poddington III, etc.... So one room got re-painted for the nursery - my husband did that since I was anti-paint at that point. And it was adorable - all primary colors and a Dr. Seuss theme. And it was Podlette's room for all of 3.5 months of her first year and then we were transferred to Monterey, CA again...so our beautiful home was rented out.
But that is a different story.
Long story short - 7 months in Monterey. Back to Bellevue in a two-bedroom apartment for 7 months while our tenants lease ran out. Back into our house.
So how we're back and we've played musical bedrooms - moving things around since the needs of the family have changed drastically. My daughter's old nursery is now my husband's office. His old office and the upstairs sunroom is now her bedroom/playroom. The first thing we did was have the room that was billiard green re-painted to a light sky blue - by someone else because I NEVER want to see another can of paint+primer again. EVER.
So it's still a work in progress - we need to put up the curtains and valances up in the playroom which has a Dr. Seuss One Fish, Two Fish theme. And we are still waiting on a GIANT Truffela tree growth chart and a wall quote for Podlette's bedroom - Dr. Seuss ABC themed.
Hey, what can I say? We LOVE Dr. Seuss. We're nerds.
