With four young children and a husband, my life is exactly what Erma Bombeck described: "Cleaning the house while the children are growing is like shoveling snow while it's still snowing." And I am so thankful for the mess and the chaos and the lack of alone time. People...what is life really about? Is life really about making yourself as cozy, unhassled, and free from others' demands as possible? I work in hospice and have seen what really matters as people are dying. What matters is relationships. Connection.
The Joys and Drawbacks of Living Solo

Speaking as the mom of four young kids, I have a couple of cautionary statements. #1, you might want to reconsider the guitar. It'll be hard for the kids to view it as merely wall art--they're going to want to play with it. And kids that age will end up breaking it. It's just kind of setting up an bad situation which is avoidable, IMO. #2, that monkey poster might scare them, I know to adults it just looks like a cool vintagey poster, but little kids can get freaked out by something that doesn't look warm and friendly, especially something with eyes. Just FWIW.
