|This corner of the living room was originally hard to utilize well. We had the piano over there, but the rest of the space wasn't very usable.|
|Christmas-y dining room. Obviously, doesn't usually have a tree in it.|
|We picked up the shelving unit, table and chairs, and rug to create our little play space. The rug really helps define the space and the shelving unit solves a lot of our clutter issues.|
Just this small little change has really helped me love my house more again. I can now see her when I cook and I'm not constantly tripping over toys. We have been so pleasantly surprised by how much she loves it. She will actually sit down and play now, instead of just running all over the house trying to see how many of mommy and daddy's things she can get in! Having her "own" space seems to really encourage play and we find her engaging with her toys and activities in new ways.
|She has recently started demanding us to sit down and play with her, too. "Mama, Down!" and points at the rug. Of course, baby, I always want to sit down and play with you!|
|It is so fun to watch her play. We couldn't be happier with the new space!|
