I’ve been working on so many mini project (as in trying to beautify and sort out the house), this is finally 1 that has completed thus far.
Yeah!! After 4 years, we’ve managed to move them out of our room into their own room for now. Since both of them are just 4 & turning 3, we thought it’s best to keep them in same room for now till Vyktore is much older then we can move him to his own room.
It started with sawing of the bunk bed which we got last year which we didn’t quite successfully moved them out from our bed cause they will crawl to our king size bed every night without fail!! So we decided it’s time already. We were supposed to get some help from Chanel’s Hubby to help saw the bed, but Daddy last minute decided to do it himself, with the help of maids of course.
Over 2 days, we managed to transform that room into a kids room. Now all their toys are in the room, most of which are stored in ikea shelfs. Also have a book shelf for their books, a table for Faythe to do work, and 2 carpets. Notice all those tables, cabinets and stuff, those things we shifted out and clear the whole room. I’ll post more photos later when I have chance to take them, or once my Mini Project 2 is ready .
How did they transition?
Well, right after we moved them, 1st thing is the bedsheet!! We changed Vyktore’s bedsheet to Wall-E (got it from Akemiuichi for 70%). Then Faythe had her bedsheet changed too, to the one with Disney Princess (from Tesco). The kids were thrilled with the bedsheet, especially Vyktore LOL. And because we saw the bed in such a way that one is higher than the other, they had loads of fun climbing up and down.
So far, it’s been almost 2 weeks they sleep in their own room. Faythe is still scared and wants me to sleep with her. So I usually sleep in and sometimes I sleep there till next morning . But Vyktore, to my surprise, he adapted really well. There were even nights when he slept there alone since Faythe overnite at MIL’s place.
There was only 1 night so far that they both woke up crying and walking to the shared bathroom instead to our room LOL, cause we kept the bathroom lights on in case Faythe wants to go toilet.
Now we are so glad to have our room back all by ourselves. But at times I feel so empty. We still have this golden rule, once a while they can come over and bump in to our King Size bed. I’m so gonna miss those moment, but I’m really glad that I get 1/2 the bed back, not the 1/4 I’ve been having for the pass 4 yrs. That ends my backache problem .
