We guided our 4-year-old daughter toward this room:
We asked her, "Aren't you thrilled with your new room?"
And she again asked about the pink wallpaper.
A while later she again asked about painting her room. But, the baby boy in the heart room was now two walking, talking boys living in a heart room and those hearts needed to come down. Afterall, couldn't a girl live forever in a pink, wallpapered room?
So 2009 is the year and to commit to the new room project. I have stripped one little, tiny bit of unstrippable paper. In the process, I have thought uncharitable thoughts toward the former owners who covered every wall of this house in unstrippable paper. I have also significantly gouged the drywall.
My girl will have her walls stripped and painted before school gets out on June 10th. Maybe even before her April birthday.
She has my word.
