However, I never even thought of doing the same in my home. Until a few weeks ago, that is. I had a new neighbor come over to visit for a cup of tea and a getting-to-know-you session. My three year old came out of my room, proud as can be, yelling "look Mom, I'm a forklift!" carrying an entire drawer from my bedside table, complete with...well, erm, very personal items. He plonked the drawer down in the middle of the room and ran away, while my poor new neighbor looked on in horror. Two thoughts crossed my mind at that point: "1. Well, she is really getting to know me now. And 2. Perhaps we should think about having the kids not go in there."
But what can I do? We live in a 4 room apartment. Blocking off access to our bedroom means the living space for my kids is reduced by 25%. Do you live in a small space? Is your bedroom off-limits to kids?
And while thinking about it, don't forget to check out the perfectly dreamy bedrooms in the My Bedroom Retreat competition. Sigh. One day!
