The perfect shade of the perfect color...

Ahhh...time to paint Baby Girl's room and try to have it ready for her arrival in August. But, what color shall we use. Well it is a girl's room so I guess it has to be pink. Now, what shade do we go with? Is it the bubbly, Bazooka Joe Bubble Gum pink?
Or the pretty, pastel Pepto Bismol shade?
What a tough decision! With the room originally being gold...first I had the oh-so-fun task of priming the walls. Kind of seems like a waste of time painting it one color then turning right around and painting it another, but no telling how many coats it saved me with the pink paint.
I was very well supervised during this process. He didn't pay attention to long before he got bored and just went to sleep. We did finally get around to painting the wall pink. We went with both; the pepto bismol and the bazooka bubble gum pink.

So we got the paint, and now it's time to do the hard work. Good thing my wife knows how to paint. I think she has done a great job. Since she is pregnant I did let her take a break every couple of hours, just so she didn't overdo it and get tired out to quickly. Find out how well the room turns out by checking in later this month. I have to go back in there and make sure she finishes the second coat tonight.

I hope you enjoyed your first Mother's Day. Next year it'll be even better. I look forward to seeing you at one of your showers so I can celebrate Baby Gay with you.
