Okay, our plan to set up the upstairs bedroom to be Swe-cha's playroom has failed.
We started by moving all his toys upstairs but since we mostly stay in the living area, his toys would slowly find their way downstairs. It became too much trouble to bring them up again, especially the bulky ones that are difficult to move up and down the stairs like his Hot Wheels garage sets and race tracks - and I'm always scared that he might fall down the stairs if he tries to bring them down himself.
Now, our living room IS the play room. We really don't mind unless we get surprise visitors.
So we sort of designated the downstairs library/den to be the guest-receiving area but the seating options in that room really leave a lot to be desired and lately, we set up the Wii there (as per our original plan) and so it has become a pseudo-playroom as well.
We racked our brains and came up with an add-on to the plan. We'll move in to the upstairs BR with Swe-cha as well. That's where we'll hang out and if we're there, he'll spend more time there and hopefully we can keep the living room in reasonable order. Tamang-tama, we don't really have a family room so perhaps this can be it.
