This probably makes me a bad mother, but this is driving me crazy:
To her, it's decoration. To me, it's visual chaos.
Seriously, that red and green striped piece of plastic got dug out of the garbage and re-hung with a fresh piece of blue painter's tape. It must be very important to her.
But then I realized, looking around at this pattern repeated all. over. the house, that all the pictures hung officially in frames on the walls probably don't do much for her. They're way too high for her to see and enjoy. I think she's telling me that she wants more visual interest at her own eye level.
Now, how to accomplish that in a way that doesn't make my eyes sore?
