My older daughters like to watch those home-decorating shows.
Which are really nice, I admit. But I often wonder if decorators understand that rooms are for actual PEOPLE to live in.
And some times... those actual people have actual CHILDREN!
So as much as I would love to live in a decorator showplace, let's be real; My kids would DESTROY it!
One popular decor item this year: Balls in a Bowl.
Pretty. But can you say "flying projectile?" Can you say "broken window?" How about "black eye?"
All of which would happen within five minutes if these things sat on my coffee table.
Here's a nicely-decorated room that's actually supposed to be FOR a child.
Dried flowers? REALLY?!
It's like an exercise of Count-The-Choking-Hazards! My kids would KILL those beautiful flying swans!
And I can't even BELIEVE the number of white couches you find under "decorating ideas."
Does anybody actually have a white couch in the real world? That's just ASKING for trouble, even if you don't have kids.
And this one has a white RUG too! Don't walk into THIS room with a jar of salsa!
Actually, I'm probably just jealous. Becaues my house will NEVER look this nice.
But that's okay.
I can eat salsa in MY living room any time I want.
