Changing Rooms

So, since my kid is already going insane, I decided to re-arrange his room. Am I brilliant or what? :P

Santa brought Joey a wall map, one of those cloth ones you velcro stuff to and talk about geography. Joey has shown difficulty with concepts of history and geography, so we thought this would be helpful. The thing is huge. But I moved around some furniture, and found a spot where he can get to it, and use it. I also put his stuffed chair there, and some floor pillows, and a little holder of books, so he now has a nice little corner to sit in and ponder the world. Literally.

We also set up the room so he could get to his CD player himself, his new pinball game, and his humidifier (which has a fake fish aquarium that lights up and slowly changes color in the front). Yes, we have set up a Sensory Overload room, just for my child to sleep in.

It's nine o'clock. I wonder if he will fall asleep before 2 am.

Sounds like quite the set up. We bought Maizie a CD player this weekend too. Then, we made the mistake of buying the Chipmunks CD. Terrible mistake. I don't know how much more of that music I can take.
I hope the map helps. Maizie struggles in the areas of History as well.

It sounds really neat. I probably wouldn't sleep either!

Sounds great! Hope he enjoys it!
