Alright girlies, get your minds out of the gutter this post is about a promise to a little girl, my little girl.
For about five years now we having been having issues with my daughter sleeping at night. it occurs from about August to November each year, not sure why but so far we have come to the conclusion that it is the change into a new grade and a new year of school beginning. She is a creature of habit and when her schedule is changed it is sometimes hard for her to adjust. From that point things usually spiral out of control. I won't bore you with the details but we have tried very hard to ease her tensions and worries with not much success.
So I offered up a deal.
I told her that if she made a real effort to help us help her I would redo her bedroom.
She really liked that idea, quickly stating that she would like to keep it her beach theme (like mother like daughter) but just a little different.
I told her of course!
So today I scanned through some pictures of bedrooms that I think that she might like.
This is currently the bedding that she has from Pottery Barn Kids. I still really like it and so does she so I think that we would keep it.

(I know that I could have taken a picture of her room now but I was lazy)
I would love the surfboard in her room so I have been keeping my eye out for one and I love the lights that hang above the bed as well.
This is a little too much pink for her, she will be 13 in a couple months and as much as I love all the pink, I think that she is past that a bit so I will out the blues and greens from the bedding.
A huge problem that we have is we have nowhere for her and her friend to sleep when she has sleep overs. She has laminate floors and so does the rest of our house, not very comfy to sleep on.
I really like the idea of the way the beds are in the pic below. They would be a great spot to sit during the day and when she has a friend over they would have a comfy place to sleep!
Her room is not very big so there is not enough room for her bed, dressers, bookshelves and a desk. I like the idea of a small table for the nightstand. It can double as a writing/computer table (although it would need a drawer to put all her junk in) This room is very soft and calming, something that might help her sleep.
This is my favorite room!! I love everything about it! The walls, the ceiling, the angles! I also love the little metal basket/locker things on the wall. I will be keeping my other eye for that!
