Somehow when your boys turn five-ish they suddenly become obsessed with sports. It happened later with my oldest (he was almost 7 before “the change”), but MUCH younger with my middle son (he was only 5).
Every single “little kid” thing that you ever had for them? No longer cool.
They want it banished to the garage sale.
I had a hard time coming to terms with the thought that my little boys were no longer wanting little boy things. They requested things like: Matt Holiday cut-outs and Green Bay Packers wall decals. Gah.
Sometimes a mama’s little design heart has to give in and please her children. Even if it means, it’s not her style or her favorite theme.
It was hard at first…because I was never a sports loving kind of gal.
And the idea of having a sports themed bedroom? Bleck.
But, once I got over myself, ha, I am actually really loving how it’s coming together. And more importantly, THEY love how it’s coming together.
Let’s be honest. This is less about me and more about them.
Trophies, trophies and more trophies.
They think they are big time being able to display those puppies for the world – errrrr neighborhood boys – to see.
My dad built the Pottery Barn look alike bunk beds for them…. It makes the whole room!
I always thought bunk beds would be “cool”, but the second I spotted this design in the PBK magazine…
I knew I had to have Poppy replicate it. I think he even did it better!
Carpeted stairs? Way less injuries.
We’ve been finishing up the rest of this room over the last few days so I can’t wait to show you how it turned out!
Until then, if you have baby boys or toddler boys start preparing your mama heart now… One day they will want sports themed everything.
In case you aren’t handy – HERE is where you can find this exact bunk!
