Really, I have a question for you more experienced moms. We were thinking of re-doing Nathan's room. We rent, so it's not like we can knock down walls or do anything crazy. I was hoping that rearranging his room my make him less anxious about bedtime. Now hear me out. What if we make it more about him, rather than apartment grade eggshell, with Nathan's furniture?
I'd like to ...
- Put up some decorations of things he likes. For example, he's so into trucks and trains right now. If I can find some affordable ones at Target or online, I think it'd be very cute!
- I'd like to move the crib out of the room, since we're planning on putting it in our room anyway.
- I'd like to move some of his toys into his room, so that he has an area of his own. Right now, we've given him about half of the living room as a play room, because there's no room in his room.
My thinking is that if we make him part of this process, he'll be less afraid, anxious, INSANE, at bedtime.
