On a happier note, I made sense of the girls' room today and got it almost completely unpacked and prettified. It is a super cute room, VERY pink with a pretty flower border that just screams little girl. We still have to get Ibis some new bedding (hers just recently bit the dust so she's sleeping on Thomas the Train sheets, not that she cares) and maybe a new shelf, but we're pretty much set. After a long discussion with Ibis, I sorted out and re-packed all of her Barbies, three fourths of their My Little Ponies, and a big box of stuffed animals. Ibis has a hard time handling more than one or two types of toys and gets overwhelmed and starts jamming toys in drawers and closets so we chose some toys that she really wanted to keep out. We'll save the Barbies for down the road if she wants them, or for Coral to grow into. It's really hard having a kid who doesn't play with toys like a normal kid would, but I'd rather face that fact than try to force a bunch of stuff on her that she doesn't like.
