omg. Bryan actually implied that the projector helps Ollie use his imagination more vs just looking at books and being read too. The projector is like the antithesis of imagination.

Use rain gutters. Cute, you can customize the length, amount and can even do corners. Plus, it's WAY cheaper.

Oliver's room does not look good for a two year old. I can't wait for the vlog where Oliver breaks the lamp and missy still claims he's a calm child. And his room looks so small with the new bed it basically goes from wall to wall same with the bed Missy's room.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that!! I have this one app for my son, you get a free dr Seuss book a week, digital. And it'll read to you and flip the page for you, which initially I thought was neat. But then I realized it was like a tiny cartoon to him. Nothing like reading a book. I'm not against letting my son watch cartoons from PBS or other "educational" programming, but I realized immediately that digital books that read to you in no way can replace a real book.

It causes the child to just be zombified, much like he is infront of the TV and iPad.

What can we really expect from bryan when he relies so heavily on electronics. He Actually thinks the projector will do good for Oliver. I hope they realize soon that they are setting Oliver up to fail by barely interacting with him while constantly throwing him Infront of electronics all the time.

Bryan, we know you read here....

This is stupid. Don't let Missy tell you that this is good for him imagination. You love Harry Potter, right? Ok, imagine instead of getting the books as they come out and getting lost in that beautiful descriptive world in your imagination... you instead watched the movies or had sketches in front of you of what you were seeing marring your ability to imagine things for yourself. You know the projector is horribly lazy. It will come at the expense of your bond with Ollie, and his intellectual development. If Missy is too busy to READ to Oliver (no projector), then please do it yourself.

2 is still a baby, even if you build them a "big boy room' and start calling them independent. If you have no interest in teaching him, then put him in daycare and let them teach him there. He doesn't need fancy rooms and more stuff. He needs more connections and security. It isn't a good thing that he adjusts that easily. It's alarming for him to not have ANY attachments. He needs to learn it's ok to like what he likes... even if it doesn't fit him mom's "picture perfect" view of things.

Yeah. I'm nervous when it comes to rain gutters, wood pallets, and PVC pipes that people use for kids' DIY. They often contain phthalates, lead and other things a kid shouldn't be in frequent contact with. My favourite DIY shelves are the fabric + curtain rods, and spice racks. They're also super cheap.

I can't wait till Ollie gets into the diaper rash ointment and spreads it everywhere one night. They are morons.

I'd buy her an American Girl doll if it meant she would stop reproducing.

Is it bad that I laughed so hard when Ollie hit Bryan? And I snorted when Bryan told Oliver to be sorry but didn't even tell him what he's sorry for! He's not going to learn by the time Finley arrives and they are running out of time!

Lol she barely dressed up Ollie when she was in the hospital, Suzanne was the one changing his clothes and diaper, even held him when the doctors would come and check on him. The only time you saw Princess Missy hold Ollie was when she was breastfeeding him.

No, they didn't. http://fantabulosity.com/home-tour-part-12-the-new-nursery-decor-boy/

Bryan ordered all the stuff and put it up. That's why he did the tour. Missy did literally NOTHING. I still think the idea is awful. Know what would have been cute? They could have kept her "Woodland" theme and added a tent, canoe, the moose, pictures etc. Then it would have been a real camping/adventure theme.

Maybe make a visit to an outdoor store and have a look around for inspiration :?


WTF. How did you find this? It's almost IDENTICAL. I'm so confused. Did Missy find it online/Pinterest and make Bry Bry copy it?? How did they even find all the same items???

Yeah, I feel ya. That's why we haven't done anything yet either.

I don't feel that great about the Ubabub either though. Expensive and it's acrylic and nowhere could I find info on how it's safe. I mean, the website says their products are, but nothing specific to those shelves. Even the acrylic cribs specify the timber is safe, but not the acrylic. Makes me skeptical. I might pay the $200 if it were more clear.

I think B&M picked them for the modern design though, not because of safety or eco concerns :P

Lol. I found it because I wanted a closer look at the "Moose" to see if it was actually supposed to be a moose, an elk, etc. I wanted to see the side profile because it just doesn't look right to me.

Basically, I found it by accident ;)

Did they choose that theme so they wouldn't have to paint his walls? The theme doesn't seem like it would be fun for a toddler.

Probably not. They don't paint anyway. Pretty sure they just payed someone to do Finn's room.

Also, isn't it weird to have so many family pictures in a kid's room? Like, why does he want a picture of himself?

That seems odd to me. I'm surprised there aren't Mimi and Papa pics too!

Bryan even described why real books are better than a machine with pictures in the room tour, when talking about the Yeti book. When you read to your child, you are free to pause and ask questions about the story, ask them to point to a character or color or animal, have them try to sound out a word (we are doing this with our 14 mo old, so Ollie is not too young to try. It's not just about the actual story or even about words being spoken--it's the interaction that builds critical thinking skills, connections between words/symbols/sounds, etc that make reading such a great developmental activity. You get none of that when something reads to them

That room is tacky and I agree with the cultural appropriation sentiments. That aside, he really should credited that blog post since he basically copied the entire thing (exact same "teepee", teepee sign, moose, etc). I love that he acted as though he randomly found all of these items. Even if the room looks different, he definitely found "inspiration" there and should credit the blog author.
