A place for their stuff
Tuesday, August 15, 2006
My very good friend Gillian who has two beautiful boys (in fact she just got back from Guatemala a few weeks ago with her second son) had given me the excellent advice when I first mention the overall plan of our nursery (aka Operation Pooh)...

Plan your toy-organization methodology into the room (I'm having to add bins and buckets now as they get older and it is taking time to find what I want and it spoils the "look" to add random solutions).  Also, plan on at least 1 bookcase, but make it adjustable so you can move the first shelf up so high that it is not an inviting step to use the bookcase as a ladder.  And this next one may be obvious, but they never point these things out in pictures of perfect nurseries...

Even if she wasn't one of the brightest, most organized, most put together women I know (but she is), this just plain makes sense and therefore I plan on following it to the letter. So I'm now looking into getting the closet set up to handle the plethora of toys and clothes that I am sure will soon follow the arrival of our little one.

    Speaking form personal experience, your child WILL want to use the bookcase as a ladder. Sounds like your friend gave you good advice.
