It never seems as if these times are passing, does it, but all of a sudden you're there! Aww.

My DD (4) would LOVE a mermaid mural, shame it is not transferable!
Mermaids and Ariel the Mermaid Princess are her favourite things!

no, YANBU at all, and thank you - I will ensure that any future lovely "muriels" I paint will be removable so that DS doesn't just paint them black when he hits 14.

It's all white now, but she and dp had the idea of painting carefully round a couple of the dolphins - they look fab, and she is SOOO pleased to have kept them, especially the one over her bed that she talked to for years! Blue woodwork nearly done. She is going to spend Sunday doing the gold stars.

oh seeker, that sounds lovely! So glad she decided not to paint over her "friends", she might have regretted it hugely.
