The first room that was a priority when we moved into our new home was of course, Izek's room. Jesse and I wanted for him to feel at home right away. We also wanted to create a room in which he was comfortable and happy to spend some time in. Izek wasn't a fan of his old room because it was a bit dark and scary, I must admit. He would always walk to our room and jump into our bed in the middle of the night which rendered sleepless nights for us.
The energy of this room is completely different. It gives off such a safe and happy feeling. At no surprise, he sleeps in his room all night and wakes up bright and early, energized and happy to go to school.
We are so ecstatic to announce that we teamed up with Target to decorate his entire room! ! Launched earlier this year, Targetâ€™s Pillowfort collection was created with BOTH parents and kids in mind. Pillowfort has the cutest dinosaur theme decor that really made this room special and unique to Izek and reflects hs personal style.
We always keep his favorite books on his nightstand.
Izek knows The Giving Tree by Shel SilverStein by heart. A few months ago, we were going through all of his books that he no longer wanted so that we can donate them. Out of nowhere, he picked up Falling Up and pointed at Shel Silverstein's picture on the back of the book and said, "Mom, this is Diositos (Gods) friend, he died and came back to write books." I asked him why he said that, and he replied, "I don't know, that just came to my mind right now." He said so nonchalantly. I asked him to repeat himself and tell me more, but he said he already forgot.
His first reactions to his new room. He was so happy! He's wearing his favorite tee shirt that glows in the dark. He calls it his radioactive shirt.
Now he has a dedicated area in his room to do his homework. A spacious and sturdy desk and a mod-inspired comfortable chair.
Nothing but fresh Cat & Jack outfits for school thanks to Target! Fun fact: Target worked with real kids to design and develop this collection!
