Spring Cleaning ~ The Nursery

by | Mar 19, 2008 | Organization | 2 comments

While I am taking a break to feed the baby, I thought I would share the progress on another room.

If you’ve been to my house you will no how far this room has come!! It had basically become the dump room for everything that didn’t have a home… Outgrown clothing, unfolded laundry, baby supplies, the guest bed, and much more.

One of the things Peter Walsh has you do is Hash out with your family how you would like each room to be used. Then move out everything that doesn’t fit in to that vision.

We have had this room set up for so long as a Guest room, and it was getting used so rarely that it really frustrated me, and made me feel like we were wasting that space. I finally almost got hubby to agree to convert it to a nursery for Snuggles. His crib was in their already, but he rarely used it since the room was so messy.

Anyhow, hubby wasn’t too excited to come home to this last week:

But, he was able to fit it into the (detached) garage until we decide what to do with it all. I would love to sheet rock our garage and make it either a guest room or school room. Maybe someday!

Yesterday I cleaned the room and now we have a functioning room for Snuggles! I also moved all the Little People out of the girls room and put them in the toy box here (the toy box came from the girls room too–to make room for a dresser), now my little ones can play in here while I school with the boys since it’s right across the hall from our school room! I love it!

I even got a couple pictures up on the wall!

Now, if I could just figure out what to do with all of this:

Well, back to work! 🙂

    That is the problem I am having too! Now I have no place to put some things! And since the weather was so bad I couldn’t work on tyhe garge like I had hoped.

    It looks great. Some of my kids play in another room during school time too.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
