Big Brother and new bedroom

Jon Harris is getting excited about being a big brother soon. (He says that he can't wait to teach the baby to work a remote for the T.V.) While he was gone to his dad's house, we thought it would be fun to surprise him with a new bedroom. We moved his room in the office so we can put the baby in his old room. (His old room is closer to our bedroom and we thought there would be less disturbances for Jon Harris if the baby was in there. ) He was so surprised! We painted and bought him a new desk and chair. It was so much fun!
Okay..... If you know Jon Harris then you know how "grown-up" he has always acted. He really does think that he is an adult sometimes. ( I often have to remind him that he is a child and to enjoy it.) Well, Wednesday morning before our doctor's appointment, he came to me and told me that he was dreading the baby coming. I asked him why he felt that way. He said that he would have to stop playing with his friends to take care of the baby. I started laughing.... bless his heart, after talking to him for a while, he has been thinking that he is going to have to be Nash's parent. He told me that since he will be in school during the day, he will just have to take the "night-shift." I have laughed the last 2 days! You never know what goes on in their little minds. I reassured him that he will continue to be a child and enjoy his childhood and leave us (me and Bo) to be the parents. He feels much better now and is excited again about being a big brother. He must have really tried to work out a plan to take care of his little brother. That to me is priceless!!


  1. Love the "big boy" bedding...funny thing, it's the same "big boy" bedding we picked out for John Owen last year when we moved him into his room upstairs! I bet it was fun to surprise him with his new room when he got home!

  2. That has to be the sweetest thing I have ever heard!

  3. Lovely decoration!! It's wonderful bedroom furniture set for his room... Home Depot provides many options for kids room!!
