I was provided with a promotional item as a member of Wayfair Homemakers to create this post about what back to school means for this mom. All opinions are 100% my own.
I love summer, don’t get me wrong. Although with the ages of my kids, almost 14,12 and 9, having a schedule makes our home move so much smoother. While I am frightened I will be sending kids to school when they are supposed to be home and vice versa with our crazy multiple school schedules, (read this post for more) I know I will need a place to relax at the end of the day. Funny how the end of the day is no longer 7 pm when the “babies” went to bed. Now I am often trying to stay up past 9pm to remind my daughter to put her cell phone downstairs on the charger.
So where is this place of solitude and relaxation. Well, I can’t jet off to Turks and Caicos every night, so I guess that means I need a more local spot. I would love to say that my office is that place, but I can usually be found in our living room where our homework station / computers are.
Our bedroom is a place to escape but usually after the boys are asleep. They have not grasped the concept of closed door means you must knock first. Since our rooms are next to each other, they believe our room is simply an extension of their own.
We have not changed much about our room decor since moving into our home 9 years ago. Outside of adding a rug, the coverlet has faded, and it just seems dull.
Really not having the time to go shopping this summer, I hit Wayfair.com for some inspiration to brighten up the main focus of the room, the bed.
Wayfair has so many choices and colors but I settled on the Madison Park Monet 3 Piece Coverlet Set in the blue. While I am hesitant to purchase linens on line since you can’t touch it first, this product received a lot of good reviews. The pillows are well made as you can see from this photo.
I was a little hesitant when I ordered a Full/Queen size but really like the length on this Coverlet set.
Now that all the school shopping is behind you and you are not scrambling to find the right 3 ring binder or a specific Running shoe you son or daughter is begging for, its time to think about you. A happy wife is a happy life and doesn’t that go hand in hand with mothering? Take a deep breath, and take a few minutes to browse Wayfair.com to find even the simplest of items that will pamper you as you head into a new school year.
