    Thanks for posting!

    This article was written by my neighbor about a program that difficult child went to after school for some time. I never would have known about the article.. I'm still in shock.

    I want one of those "magic cabinets"! I'm going to show difficult child 3 as soon as I can - it's very similar (only more up-market) to what the boys made out of the cardboard box the washing machine came in. But the curtains - what a good idea! I might use something other than cow print, though. Although for easy child 2/difficult child 2, she would want it lined inside with fur fabric. difficult child 3 probably would want towelling. difficult child 1 - satin. You could put those stick-on halogen lights inside, so they could have as much light as they want but still the sense of being enclosed.

    A really good study place.

    The article - loved it.
