Last year, right after Christmas, Breana said she wanted me to redo her bedroom. But I was all, "What the hell, child?! You just had Christmas, you can wait until your birthday!" And so it began. She told me she wanted a tufted headboard, blue walls and a desk. She had been living with the same pink and green color scheme since she was three so I knew it was time. Every step of the way I obtained her approval. Gone are the days when I can buy her Matilda Jane clothing. Now it's tshirts and jeans and tshirts and jeans and jeans and Nikes and tshirts and Converse. And I really hate it. Luckily though, Breana didn't want her bedroom outfitted in skinny jeans and Simply Southern shirts. Praise whatever you believe in! I believe in white wine.
You always want better for your kids than what you had, right?
Dearest Breana, you and I are better than off-white walls and furniture never destined to move, ever. An interior space should reflect who you are, and you, my dear, are the most colorful person I have ever met. You are smart, full of wit, and are always on the move. Happy 11th Birthday, my love.
