No More Monkeys Jumpng on the Bed

A few weeks ago I was browsing around Etsy hoping to find some good ideas to decorate Logan's room. My first idea was to make his room into some sort of aquarium, since it was already blue and green and looked like a fishbowl. Then I thought I would make it into something Sponge Bob related. Every kid loves Sponge Bob. But what if Logan grew out of that too fast?

Terry had been playing the "No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" video from Youtube for Logan a lot. It was one of their favourites. So when I saw some wall vinyl with that theme I just had to order them. I found them at Xpressions That Stick on Etsy. What a fabulous store! It has all sorts of things for children's decor. They even let me choose the colour I wanted and the green matched perfectly with the paint on the ceiling and trim.

I showed Logan what I ordered and then we waited. Every day, Logan would excitedly check the mail for his monkeys and say, "maybe monkeys come today?"

Finally they arrived and we spent the morning putting them up on his wall.

Even if he grows out of them, at least they are wall vinyl. So I can easily take them off, instead of permanent paint that I would have to decorate over top of.

The only problem we are experiencing now is that Logan really thinks those monkeys are going to jump on his bed at night when he's sleeping. He watches them very carefully and has been having trouble sleeping. We're hoping that he will get used to them soon. He seems to really like them during the day. Terry even kissed them to show Logan that they were nice friendly monkeys, but it doesn't seem to work. We'll figure something out, or he'll get used to them. I would hate to have to take them down because they are adorable and he loves to show everyone his monkey room.
