She always seems to be at her craziest in the middle of the night. I don’t know what it is about everyone being asleep and it being really quiet, but that seems to be the time of day she decides to go on her rampage. I’m talking about my son’s kitten, of course. Sofia? Sofie? Kitten? Oh, wait. He finally decided on Kika for her name. If you’re following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen her make an appearance from time to time. Aww. There she is.


*A big thank you to Levolor for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. You can check out my disclosure policy here.

Well, little Kika has some nocturnal tendencies. My poor son frequently complains about her interrupting his sleep because she sits in the window sill, batting away at the cord handles from the blinds. Finally, after realizing that she wasn’t going to grow out of her kitten behaviors any time soon, I decided enough was enough and headed to Lowe’s to find a suitable replacement.

I love the look of wood blinds but not the price. I was so glad to find that they carried a wide selection of gorgeous choices for faux wood blinds. I browsed through all of my options but was really intrigued by the Levolor® Custom Size Now Premium Faux Wood Cordless Blinds. Cordless blinds and shades are “Safer for pets & Children” due to no dangling cords and provide a clean easy look to your room. Safe and aesthetically pleasing? Perfect!

I played around with the display to get a feel for how the blinds operated and I’ve got to say that I was really impressed. Since there are no annoying cords dangling you simply pull or push gently on the bottom of the blinds to raise or lower them. How easy is that? I know that is a feature that my son will appreciate and I will feel so much more at ease knowing that he’s not wrangling with a long bunch of cords. Not to mention, Kika has nothing to bat around anymore! Success!!

  5. Oh, what was it like to get a full night’s rest (before kids and pets?) — I honestly don’t remember! 🙂 We have a nocturnal hamster who decides that running on his wheel has to happen at 1am too.
