Pool day

Posted: August 5, 2012 in Misc
Today I spent the day at the pool in my latest bathing suit I got from VS. I wanted something in the 50s style but that was the closest I could find.

Alejandro and I soaked in the hot tub for and played in the sun. I am probably the only crazy person (not counting my son) who likes to soak in a hot tub on such a hot day.

Montessori toddler room decor

Finally got around to make some adjustments to Alejandro’s room decor.

Got my husband to lower down the bar in the closet, so that Alejandro had easy access to the clothes in case he needs to change. Then we went to IKEA and got plain wooden frames so I could frame a couple of Ale’s paintings; one that is his very first work he brought home from daycare, and another one I loved so much because it has Ale’s hand prints.

Now Alejandro can proudly observe his own art on the wall of his room.

We hung everything low, so it is at Alejandro’s eye level and does not make him feel uncomfortable or inferior.
