My Grey Heaven

This is Zimri Falls Dukes.  He is the son of my good friends Susan Falls and Dare Dukes.  He has cute socks, a mild temperament, and a whole heaping village of wonderful caretakers.  He is perfect and much loved.

And I am oh-so fortunate to be allowed to create a space for Little Zim to reside in.  This is my packet of inspiration for the baby room.  (Click each image for a better glance.)  This packet outlines the concept for the room and describes just how I propose we do it.  The first step is paint the room, taking it from bright yellow to a neutral grey.

This is Dare and Susan's old yoga room.  It was bright.  It was yellow.  It is no more.  Goodbye yoga room.  Make way for Zim.

I knew from the get go that I wanted to paint the walls of the baby's room in varying shades of grey.  I had been warned, accosted, heckled, ridiculed, shamed, besmirched, driven out of town, even!  The very thought!  A grey room for a baby!?  I, however, had faith that my ideas and actions were indeed noble.  So I fought on for the liberty of posh baby boys everywhere, and Zim was their cause personified.  I would not let him down.  Grey it would be! Naysayers be darned!  Darned I say!!!

This video is my first attempt at documenting the process, so that explains the clumsy camera work.  More to come, stay tuned....

"I see a smiling face, and fireplace, a cozy room.  A little nest that's nestled where the roses bloom.  
Just Molly and me, and baby makes three.  We're happy in my, blue heaven."

Hey, that's my son! Kyle, you're the only person we know who is talented enough to create a room for Super Zim.
