The room moving, redecorating in our house continues (although I did take a short break for a bit). K’s room is coming together nicely, and she just loves her “Big Girl Room.” Any concern that I had about her not wanting to give up her room was pointless – it didn’t faze her one bit. (I, on the other hand, get a little wistful when I go into her old room… it was her room for three years I am sad that it isn’t any more, even though it will be the baby’s soon enough.)
As happy as I am about how her room is turning out, I woke up in a panicked sweat a few nights ago when I realized (in a dream) that there is no where in her room for a bedroom desk. Obviously at three, she has no need for a desk, but when picking out furniture for her room I choose furniture to last. I have no intention of buying new furniture as she gets older, but I didn’t plan for a desk. There’s no room!
I pointed out my concern to my husband and he assured me that we can squeeze one in, and I know we can but it is going to be so crowded. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner. Computer desks are a must in every preteen/teen’s room, where else would she study? My husband also suggested a lap desk, but that doesn’t count. A girl needs a place to spread out her homework assignments and concentrate.
Yes, I know I am worried about something years away… But these are the things my preggo brain freaks out about — where to put a desk in 10 years!
