Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
Image via Wikipedia

I love to watch design shows.   So when Full Speed pipes up that we need new furniture my mind flashes to some interesting possibilities.  When my beach-cottage daydream is over I closely evaluate his intention.  Is he wondering out loud when Extreme Home Makeover is coming to give him a Jurassic-themed bedroom?  Or is he feeling bored and on the lookout for the ‘next best thing’?

Surprisingly, a third option revealed itself.

“Mom, I’m thinking we need to put a big welcome rug right here,” he shares as he points to the empty floor space in front of our lanai doors.  “Then, maybe here in the middle of the room we could get a trampoline so when T.Puzzle chair dives he won’t have to worry about getting hurt.”


Then, it gets even more interesting as T.Puzzle shares his design insight.  “Maybe we could put four beds in front of the TV so we can all lay down like we are sleeping when we watch a movie.  Dad could have football sheets, I could have Star Wars sheets, because I LOVE Star Wars, and Mom could have Barbie sheets.  What kind of sheets do you want, Full Speed?  Transformers?”

Look out HGTV I have two designers headed your way.
