Cute Corner

Happy Friday everyone!

Just a really quick entry for this afternoon because I don’t want to spam you with a novel caption on Instagram haha. Today, I created a really sweet corner in our living room for Chet, where he can play, craft and not fall asleep haha. Yes I said “not” (am I insane?) I’ll let you know why below- it won’t be long I promise.

Our home is a 4×2 however it’s not overly big at all. It’s just a nice small home we can enjoy as a family, until we build again one day. I have thought about creating a playroom in my study (which is the 4th room) but I know he wouldn’t use it because he likes being able to see me. He won’t even play outside unless I am with him and that’s totally fine. He’s still little and I love that he wants to ‘hang’ around me because I know it won’t last forever. Recently I have been sticking him in front of the TV in the theatre room while I cook dinner at 5:30 but this week it has been backfiring on me.

Chet doesn’t have a nap anymore… He will refuse a day nap for hours and the only way he’ll ever fall asleep is in the car orrrrr…. at 5:30 when I’m cooking dinner eep. Everyone knows that there is no happy ending to your toddler having a 5:30pm nap. Lol! This is why I have created a little space where Chet can craft, play and watch the ipad while I’m cooking. The kitchen, dining and living room are open plan so I can keep an eye on him and make sure he’s not drawing on any of the furniture haha.

I will let you know how it goes but I hope he loves it because I spent so much on textas, pencils, crayons, coloured card, scrapbooks and glue today. The gorgeous desk is from Kido Store and the little holders are removable so they can be placed wherever you like. It’s seriously cool! You can view it here.

Anyway, that’s my back-story! I’ll take some more pictures soon but I won’t ramble anymore because it’s the weekendddd! Have a great one!!

Much Love

  1. My kids are the same. Even if we had a playroom they like to be with us. So that’s fine because I doubt come ‘tween’ years they’ll want to know us πŸ˜‚
    Eva would love this and does love her desk set up in her room (not as glam as this) but Luca prefers to sprawl at my feet with his iPad πŸ’πŸ»
