What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Bringing Up BeBe, Nurture Shock, Bringing Up Cain, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Cinderella Ate My Daughter. This list barely skims the surface of books that can found on couples bookshelves who just found out they are pregnant or perhaps those who are already homing three little ones themselves. Reading from the opinion of others and what to expect, how to cope and the ultimate preparedness guide to raising and living with children expands on maternal and paternal instincts and can open the doors to an unexpected approach to nurturing and teaching your young offspring.
As the years pass both you and the children learn, fight and forgive then quickly pose for picture perfect moments even if mere seconds ago a temper tantrum that would breach the Richter scale was released. It’s these photographs that we must learn to hold on, rather than the minor failed parenting, teacher parent conferences regarding malevolent behavior from a five year old or World War III at the supper table with attempts to get your young to eat their nutritious veggies.
And it’s these photographs that deserve a well-respected space in our home: A monument, a shrine, or just some place where we openly cherish and celebrate family.
Here are five fun ways your parenting books didn’t tell you that you could mend the family circle with some rectangular frames and reestablish the love!
1: Corner Frames
For a visible outward corner in your home, be it down the hall, from room to room, in your grand entrance, when your walls meet they create a corner that juts out like a posing elbow. Rarely does this elbow receive any ornamentation until now. With corner framing that hugs tight the corner of the wall, you can create a hinge look with pictures and captured moments of happy memories in an unanticipated way.
