Get your "Squeak" on!

Each of my children has a current obsession, if you read through my posts enough, you will figure them out. Right now, J's is Alvin and the Chipmunks. Nevermind that he is 11!!!! When it came time to paint his room, I had to anticipe that he might adjust his current fixation sooner than later: say, when he starts liking girls. I really attempted to paint his room in a versatile scheme. The idea was to find vinyl sticker chipmunks to place around the room that we would be able to remove later. See, this was my conniving mothering ways… he just thought it was cool. I thought, “I won’t have to look at these crazy rodents forever.” This is as far as we got. His room has been painted for a month now. But as it turns out NO ONE has vinyl sticker chipmunks – ugggh. So in spite of my vigilant effort to finish this room, I am afraid I may have to actually paint them on. And that could take – well – forever. Of course, when Alvin and his posse turn out looking more like the Adams Family, J may wished we had left it this way.

Actually, I just "designed" it and had my BIL paint it... I did the same thing penguin room -- only I had All About Painting paint where I had drawn on the wall.
