We finally start up some house tour again. Next door to Alex’s nursery is Ryan’s bedroom. He has the smallest room in the house, mostly because when we moved in, no one lived in it.
Here’s his room from the door. Alex is modeling the crib for him. Ryan’s crib is mostly where I stash Alex when we are upstairs and I need to do something. (Our upstairs is not babyproofed. You are not allowed upstairs alone until you are slightly more reasonable.)
Here’s the mural over his crib. The crib was never intended to be permanent in the room, so it’s kind of stuck in the middle of everything. I had to pull it pretty far away from the window to make sure he couldn’t reach the blinds or the curtains so he can reach the door if it isn’t completely shut.
Ryan has named all the airplanes and helicopters after members of his family. I forget which one is me.
Ryan’s room has bunk beds. The ladder has been removed until my children are less impulsive. Sometimes as a super special treat, Elizabeth and Ryan get to sit on the top bunk for story time.
Here’s a detail of one of my favorite parts of the room. I put a road around the outside of his closet door. It’s play tape (it’s literally called play tape if you want to buy some, that’s what you should search on Amazon, etc.) and it’s basically masking tape printed with a road. I love it.
Ryan may have the smallest room but he has the largest closet. There’s enough room for his clothes and also all the other size clothes for all three kids. Before it was Ryan’s room, I put a pack and play in there for my niece to sleep there with room to spare. Best closet.
Now, part of the reason I took these pictures today was because Ryan decided today was the day he was finally going to sleep in his bed instead of his crib. But he wanted the beds un-bunked first. So now his room looks completely different. So I will do another tour of Ryan’s room eventually with his big kid set up.
