With the building of our new house I’ve been constantly on Pinterest looking at decorating ideas. I saw this awesome reading nook a few months ago and was so excited that my oldest son’s room in the new house was going to have a similar alcove.
When I showed my husband he tried to indulge me but basically told me he thought it was probable if not certain the boys would constantly pull down the curtains. He also added that it was a little “girly” and that while they would enjoy a place to read that doing something like this would be more for me than them.
I see his point but geez, he was a bit brutal about it I thought! Am I sentenced to a life of aesthetic boredom because God blessed me with three little men instead of girls? Does my home decor really need to revolve around the destructive patterns of little boys? What say you dear blog readers? Is it futile to attempt to indulge my decorating urges until the boys are older?
