When you're preparing to welcome a new addition to the family, you want the nursery to be as cute as possible. You prep their room with new paint and add wall art and pick bedding and curtains, but after the baby is born you might not love how it turned out. Sure, you received everything you wanted from the registry, but the room might not feel cohesive. Or, you're wanting to scale back and add more minimalist touches.

Need a quick upgrade without doing tons of work? "Removable wallpaper is a great way to personalize a space for your little one without making a permanent decision," says Elizabeth Rees, founder of Chasing Paper. "Try an accent wall or frame a few swatches in a fun shape as an art print is easy and simple to do." It's also nice to add little touches of your own style like framed artwork, plants, fun sheets and blankets can make the space feel more personal and an extension of the vibe of your home, she says.

Easy peasy.

So what's the deal with lazy parenting? How do I do it and what will it do for my kids?

When I first heard of lazy parenting, I thought someone had been spying on my house on Fridays from 5:30pm until bedtime.
