Mean Mum or Evil Genius? Either Way You Decide!

Evening All,

Well having finished the babies room, there has been quite the argument between the kids as to whose room should be done next. The boys think theirs should be next, but Elizabeth looks at me with pleading blue eyes, begging me to do hers.

In order to settle this argument  I asked the kids to clean their rooms and I would have you guys decide. Each child has briefly stated why their room should be next. In the comments, I ask that you vote for the child who has convinced you.


In no particular order we have

Elizabeth's Room



In her own words, she says "I would like my room to be next, so I can see all my Mum's creations come to life." - (Yikes, how's that for pressure)


The Boy's Room



Samuel says "Our room should be done next because even with the blinds open the room is dark and we need new draws. Elizabeth always gets a make over (hmm, Nana gave her new to us furniture, I haven't actually done anything in there since I moved Jack out for Madeleine's arrival)

Jack says "Our room should be done next because it's drab and lifeless" - Someones been watching too many home makeover shows with his mother.

So friends, the gauntlet has been thrown, please vote for the child who has moved you. Also take into consideration I asked them to clean and present their room as best they can.

Personally I think I am now a evil genius, I can happily disappoint the kids and tell them the world has spoken - How many times can I get to say that? HAHAHAHA - that was my feeble attempt at an evil laugh.

Voting closes next Sunday night at 8:30 pm at Australian EST. In the mean time I'll be wowing (or maybe not) with a few random crafts and maybe even a food post. otherwise known as organizing Christmas

Thanks for reading and please vote,

Mel xo

    1. LOL don't be sorry, the boys said it themselves plus this room has really poor lighting. It's a terrible colour a few years back when we painted it we though yellow might brighten it up but I think only white is goig to help

  8. I'm going to be no help at all- I think you should do a little at a time on both rooms! Say, a week or two on one, then the same on the other, and continue that way until done. Insert my evil laugh here... :D

  15. You are an evil genius. I love how you worked this all to your advantage AND how you put yourself in a position to be free from having to pick who's room will be next. I vote Elizabeth's room, she did such a good job cleaning, I'd love to have her come here and clean my house :)

  21. The boys got me with the "drab and lifeless" pitiful speech. Sorry to little Miss Bennett! ~ Maureen

  22. I vote for Elizabeth, because she has clearly made an effort to clean and present her room

  23. Do the boys' room first- you'll please 2/3 of the contestants in one fell swoop. Sometimes dividing and conquering is your best bet!

  25. Based solely on cleanliness, your precious daughter wins. However, based on their little speeches, the boys' got my vote. Tough call, but if you told them the votes were based on how they prepared their rooms, Elizabeth is a clear winner.

  30. You are a genius mom! I have to cast a vote for the boys because I think that bed has a lot of possibilities and boys need to learn at an early age how to decorate. Elizabeth appears to have this down pat!
