Super Hero??? Or What!

Hey!!! Me AGAIN....supporting my addiction to the smell of Cleaning Products...lol. Today I have once again linked to Momstheword....for the summer cleaning frenzy. It is a great meme...she keeps us all motivated...or in my case...manic about making our homes sing! I have chosen to do every room in my house...as part of my usual cleaning...but decided to share it with you! If you have not joined in on the cleanin frenzy...visit momstheword by clicking on her name or the photo above and take a peek....she will for sure get you going!
Now for my offering today:
This was Brayden's room last year. He is 9 almost 10 years old. I painted the mural of the Justice League for him 4 years ago.
I LOVE super heros. Almost more than him...Those Hulks...are walkie talkies!!!
Last summer, I decided to add an NHL logo to the wall for him to share his hockey things. Things this year are just a little different in his world. The heros were not being cared for...and the space became a catch all for every little piece of junk he could muster up. Time had come for mother to step in....here is the result.
-wash window, blinds, screen, walls....bedding cleaned, sheets changed.
-dust, remove all heros except the mural and replace with sports things that mom had in storage...take photo of one excited little man.

-hang the huge poster size photos of him playing hockey each year....clean out closet, give large amounts of Lego to Lilsista's kids...hee hee....(calling that payback)
-close up of logo I painted...not perfect...but close enough
-who is excited???
-they are!!! Busy HAD to be in the photos....her sister didn't want to be...she didn't help at all....(wait till we move to HER room....she better help!)
-one clean closet...and two goof balls...
-some wall art...there is supposed to be a bat hanging in there too...but for obvious reasons...it is not allowed...lol
-say "thank you mom" for helping me fix the mess I made...and for taking Busy to bed! lol

That's another episode of Tootsie Cleans House.....thanks for tuning in!

What a perfect room for a little boy. Your children are so cute Tootsie. Nice painting. How many children do you have, 3? We have 5 in our blended family, I have a 24 year old daughter, 22 year old son, their Dad is deceased. My husband has three girls, 11,13 and almost 15 and their mom is deceased.

Whoa....Tootsie paints?!! You've been holding out on us! You, my dear, ARE a super hero! You do it all, and more importantly you do it well. I like his room. It was really fun to see some new pictures of your kids too!! Excuse me if I'm rambling but I can't believe how good you are at EVERYTHING and that you have secret talents your keeping from us! LOL!! Great job. I've been cleaning room by room too. I won't get it all done by the wedding but hopefully our guests won't look too closely or they may get bitten by a dust bunny!

Psst..I posted another flower you have not seen....at least not in my yard..

What a great mom . . . to honor your little boy's interests in such an artistic and very handsome way. Great subtle lesson that says love and respect where you live. Cute, cute .... especially the kiddoes! cheers -s

What fun! I loved doing my kids rooms(-:
Now that they are big kids its not as fun to see their rooms not looking cute and tidy but oh well I guess!
Last summer my son wanted a Japanese theme room so I redid his room while he was away on a trip. It was really fun and he loved it. When My daughter got married and moved out it was fun tearing her room up and starting over too! I did her room in an Americana theme with primitive rabbits. I loved how it turned out! She is back now though and its not so cute...lol

Erin said...

It is terrific! That room is a perfect boy room and you are super talented. ...and I won't even tell you that after we gave away the Legos when Valiant (our youngest son) was 9 and seemed to be done with them, we had to start buying them again because, well, he was just taking a hiatus and is still going strong with them at 13...sigh!
