Your Baby Room Sucks

Does your son’s fire truck bed have flashing lights, a PA system, scanner, radio and rubber tires?

I assume your daughter’s bed at least folds away into a wall-mounted doll house cottage.

You made it all by hand, right?

Our dear ‘ol Grandma sent in this link to make everyone feel inferior. Or something like that.

    A working siren and PA in a kids’ room? Wow. That seems a bit irritating for any hearing individuals within earshot….

    The absence of the 14 y.o. daughter in the photos may suggest that these even super-beds cannot resist the transformation into embarrassing artifacts when a kid becomes an adolescent. “Dad, I really just want a futon!”

    Or so I’ll tell myself about our far less cool rooms…

    PA and Siren!

    That’s the first thing that jumped out at me. Why would you arm your kids with more than their lungs to voice their anger at being sent to their rooms?!?

    I think they’re awesome!! But I do agree that at 14, the daughter probably isn’t so keen on it anymore.

    And I thought we were going overboard! And we just got some fireman theme crib stuff and stuffed dalmation dogs for decorations.
    I thought putting dalmation spots on everything was a bit much, but the dresser turned out pretty good. We got some of the ideas from this fireman theme decorating page.

    I’m glad they didn’t have the siren thing listed or I might be spending my weekends wiring one up.
