The flair for design.
Bossy has written about her daughter’s unprompted creativity before– but picture if you will: it’s the day after elections, and Bossy and her mother are plugged into MSNBC with their morning coffee, when all of the sudden they hear the sound of heavy furniture scraping across the floorboards upstairs.
Bossy knows better than to micromanage these situations, where knows better equals It Was The Day After Elections And Nothing Could Move Bossy From The TV.
In a couple of hours’ time, Bossy’s daughter invited Bossy and her mother upstairs to see what she had been up to– and it turns out she had shuffled everything around in her room to create a new nook for her bed.
She hung a lit wreath for a reading light and she framed a magazine poster… on the surface of it, this redesign has a few fatal flaws, for instance she can no longer access certain bureau drawers, which she emptied into other bureau drawers across the room, prompting her to edit a few things and create a goodwill bag, which can never be a bad thing.
But yesterday, when Bossy passed her daughter’s early-morning room, Bossy couldn’t deny that her newly created nest looked cozy and inviting.
A+ Bossy’s daughter from the design judges!
