okay, so when i was about three days prego with little mr. re-nest #2, i discovered the genius “secret boards” on pinterest. perfect timing because besides wondering exactly when that feeling of being on a fishing boat in the middle of a storm was going to set in, i went right to “how am i going to decorate this little one’s space?”
while i was going along and secret pinning a lot of stuff, i came across the cutest (and i mean, hands down, most adorable) thing i had ever seen: the marc brown quote “sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.”
what better quote to incorporate into little mr. re-nest #1’s room? and i’d been contemplating starting a piece that was in the subway art look and feel, so this seemed like the perfect way to kill two birds.
so i totally admit, i started this project a long time ago. first goal was to have it for the fourth birthday party. nope. second goal was to have it before little mr. re-nest #2 was born. double nope. third goal: get it done while on maternity leave. yeah, that didn’t happen.
so, something like nine months after that secret pin, i give you little mr. re-nest #1’s new wall art addition.
besides the fact that he’s a big brother, this is all the more poetic because his little brother already looks at him like he is his hero. it’s really just one (of the million) most adorable things little mr. re-nest #2 does.
oh, and in case you’re wondering, there’s a girly version too (that i’ll do for the shop and to share at shows). it’s pretty adorable too!
here’s to the little superheroes,
