Part of week one of the cure is trying to find your style, and putting pictures in your style tray that reflect what you like or want. This is my 3rd cure, so I wasn't actually planning on doing that, but I still look at magazines and websites for style ideas and such.
Yesterday my Metropolitan Life came in the mail. I have mixed feelings about this magazine, but I have been getting it for years and years, and for the past year, I have been looking at it with my son. He's 3, but he's with me 24/7, so he looks at what I look at, shops with me etc..... He loves paint swatches- has since he was a little baby.( We also look at architecture, paintings, we go to lowes and home depot- it's not just all shopping. ) My husband gets him involved with tools and building so he has been around remodeling and decor choices since he was born.
So we're looking at pictures and he pick this one out
and he says he likes it. I ask him why- thinking he'll just say "I don't know" or "I just do" but no, he goes on about the great ceilings, the art on the wall, and the candle holders on the table. Then he tells me he really likes the chairs, and asks me why there aren't any curtains. My mouth fell open.
We are re doing his room for his birthday this spring- and I think that I may have him all wrong. I think that we are taught ( or just pick up via osmosis) that little boys don't care what their room looks like and that children in general like childish things. Maybe that's not the case. Or maybe my kids just a weirdo. Either way- I think I need to listen to him a bit better.
