Larissa sleeps in a spare bed in our bedroom. On December 31st I assumed she was asleep when I whispered to John that I wondered when she would be ready to move to her own bedroom. From the little bed across the room came the answer, "Never, I am going to always sleep in here!"
Larissa is like a yo-yo. She is downstairs, upstairs and downstairs. I think that the time she has been happiest outside of our bedroom has been last year when she decided to move into the closet outside of our bedroom.
She enjoyed her little room but decided to move upstairs when the girls moved to the master bedroom and then the new foster kid came. However, she slowly started coming back to our bedroom. We put the twin bed back into our bedroom at some point and she has stayed.
Her closet last year.
When she left the closet I converted it back to our coat, shoe and whatever closet. (Yes, a mess, I know). My husband talked to Larissa and asked her if she wanted to move back to the closet. She said yes.....and she wanted the bed high with a theme of Monster High.
This time I decided to completely change the room and we plan on keeping it whenever she decides to move out again. Spare bedroom!?
Her dollhouse fit just right. The closet is not quite wide enough for a mattress so there are three mattress pads on the bed area. It is quite comfortable.
Sarah helped her put up Monster High vinyl decorations. Quick, easy and removable.
Larissa is delighted.
Her Monster High doll stuff is under the bed and her clothing is in the cabinets.
Last night she slept in her new bedroom.
Anyone else have a bedroom in a converted closet?
