Caleb’s Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Bedroom
Caleb, like many kids, is obsessed with all sorts of automobiles. He loves trains, is fascinated by airplanes, and would ride on tractors all day, every day if we let him! When I was planning his big boy room, I immediately decided it had to be a planes, trains, and automobiles theme. And yes, a Tardis does count as a vehicle as well… Doctor Who nerds unite! This is the second room we have finished (minus the trim but that’s coming in stage two of our house renovations) and Caleb and I love hanging out in here reading books, rocking on the rocking chair, and playing his drums. Because, yes, every two year old needs drums in their room. (Those were a present from the drummer at our church. #WorshipPastorDaddy)
Updating the paint and carpet was absolutely needed in this room! I found some great plane, train, and car decor and, for Caleb’s birthday in November, got it (mostly) decorated. He was so excited as he walked into it and would constantly point to the walls saying “dada paint!” and point to the decor making airplane and train noises. Now that he’s older and talking more he loves asking to play with his metal airplane and train and telling us all about the colors of vehicles he has in his room.
And before you say anything, yes, this is Caleb’s big boy room and yes, he is still in a crib. We were gifted a second crib while I was pregnant with Josiah so we see no need to transfer Caleb into a toddler or twin bed when he has yet to figure out that he can climb out of his crib. I’m personally fine with him being in a crib until he’s 15 if he hasn’t figured out how to climb out yet. Eventually a big boy bed will be a part of this room but for now we’re calling it his big boy room but allowing him to stay little too!
