A Sad Day In My World

So about a month before my son's birthday my older son, he came to me and said Mom I don't want any gifts. Good thing I was sitting for that? Mom instead can we paint my room? So on the verge of tears I asked how he wanted his room painted? He showed me a photo of a Mickey Mouse room. Oh how sad. But I gave it and said sure but not until after your birthday.

Well here it is after his birthday and he still wants his room painted. We have bought half the paint so looks like we are doing this.

The sad thing is when I was 5 months along with him I painted his current room. I did this all by hand. Well with my projector, but every paint stroke was by hand. And now I must say goodbye to this room. The room that took a few months to work on as I had the time. He says he has outgrown it. What can a mom to do?

Stay tuned for the new Mickey Room....
