Accepting the Unperfected Life: Post 2

You all know by now that I have issues with coming off as having it less than all together. It's something that I'm God is working on.

Desiring to have it all together is one reason you haven't seen kitchen re-do pictures or pictures of the Squirt's big boy room or even #2's new nursery. None of them are finished. None are close to perfect. And even if they are finished one day, they will likely never be ready for a close-up because of dirty dishes, dirty clothes, dirty name it. My "my house always looks this way" self wants to wait and take the perfect picture, once the shelves are totally accessorized and the fresh cut flowers in their vases.

But like I said, this desperate need to have it together is something that we're working on, so here's a glimpse of the Squirt's new big boy room - in all it's imperfect glory.

Remember the room before??

Here's the best shot I could get of it today:

This is the corner we all curl up in each night to read books before bedtime.

The climbing wall! Envy of toddlers neighborhood-wide.

The office-turned-bedroom closet

Still totally lacking in organization, but I've made a start with these bins...

We still want to hang some book shelves within toddler reach and I have a little coat rack/diaper bag holder project up my sleeve, but realistically this is 98% done.

Thanks for helping me admit I haven't got it all together...maybe soon you'll get to see the kitchen too. : )


  1. Yay! So happy to open your blog and not see pictures of play-dough! (Not that I didn't enjoy that post, I've just been looking forward to a new one). :) Love the room!

  2. I really like the closet organization. Well done!!

  3. It looks great! I would love to have the kind of space to have a closet this organized. Hopefully our next place will have a lot more storage space so I can :)
