Muna’s nursery pictures originated from a wish to make our daughter’s room the comfiest place in the house. We had reached a time when it seemed right for the child to sleep in her own room but we wanted to do anything we could to make the transition as smooth as possible for her. Our strategy was to choose a stable and calm period so that she could feel safe and we gradually started talking to her about her new, fun room. We went to admire the room once in a while and discussed how fun it would be to sleep there. The last and most important way of making the room especially enjoyable was to paint characters she knew on the walls. The first pictures portrayed a wolf and a badger from our daughter’s favourite book ("Kop-kop! Kes seal on?"). Every night we told her a familiar story and before going to sleep wished “good night” to the wolf and badger. Established routines and familiar funny characters helped her adjust with the big change and get used to her own bed and room more easily. Creating the next characters was a lot of fun for me as well as her.
