very impressive dress up box for the Peanut's birthday present. So this past June (ahem), when the little brother turned two, my mom required herself to follow suit in making him his very own dress box. Never mind the fact that the Peanut didn't really start using her dress up box (aside from the gaudy jewelry!) until about 18 months later--when she was about 3 1/2.
Well, okay then.
Just as Peanut's dress up box was fit for a girl, his is just as masculine as her's is girly. My mom stained his in a nice dark finish, very much like the finish on his furniture she refinished for him when I was pregnant with him. She was going for a treasure chest look--which worked out well for this mama. We ended up using the chest for the treasure hunt at the Peanut's pirate party in September!
Yes, he definitely needs to work on his bedside manner, but he is all boy. Indeed.
