Lovin's Land


Sunday morning, our kids came bounding into our room and jumped up onto our bed. This is pretty typical for a Sunday morning. We have church later in the afternoon this year, so usually my hubby and I can hear the kids playing together while we enjoy the fact that we don't have to be out of bed by 7 am for a change.

Well, this particular morning, the kids had decided to rename our rooms. Our oldest son's room was named Lego Land. Very appropriate as he has tons and tons of Legos. Our oldest daughter's room became Ballet Land. Again, very suiting as she loves anything to do with dance. Our youngest son and daughter share a room next to ours, and it was renamed to Coloring Book Land. The kids even pulled all their coloring books off the shelves, grabbed all their coloring containers, and put them in Coloring Land.

As for Mom and Dad's room, we got a new name, too. Again, one that's very appropriate. We're now Lovin's Land. This is fun because we often ask our kids for "Lovin's" which means it's hugs and snuggles time. I was so happy to be associated with hugs, rather than something like "No Land" or "Go to Your Room Land".

Hugs are good. Yes indeed.

I think my room would be "messy land" since I've been terrible about making my bed lately!

Hee hee. I totally understand! It seems like I can get every room in the house cleaned, except my own bedroom. I wonder what my kids think of that when I explain to them that their rooms are their responsibility and they need to keep them clean. They're probably thinking, "Yeah right, Mom. What about your room?" :)

What a fun Sunday morning greeting. You've got great kids and create imaginative to come up with those names.

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Thanks, Amy. I bet your nieces and nephews come up with some pretty fun stuff, too. :)

That's so sweet! I think my kids would probably call ours "Go to your own room Land."

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Kellie - Does that imply your kids like to walk into your room without knocking, any time during the day or night? Sounds like my four-year-old! :)
