Makes My Monday: Girl and Boy, Pink and Blue...

Double Daddy is no bon-bon eating stay-at-home-dad; he is a motivated, interior improving man.

After nine years of sharing a room, and nine months of sharing a uterine duplex, our twins were ready to have a space to call their own. Tasked with selecting their wall colors, Sarah and Darren made surprisingly gender-specific choices!

He-Twin's sleep-space is Galactic Blue...

She-Twin's boudoir is Sassy* Pink.
[*Paint color aficionados may be able to decipher her raspberry-shaded room is actually Sexy Pink, but we put the kibosh on that designated name choice. It's "Sassy" for 9-year-olds.]

Daddy's loving elbow grease and the kids' appreciation of their new rooms and their Daddy's efforts, Make My Monday.

Wow!!! Go Daddy go! ;-)

Great choices, kids!

A fresh coat of paint always livens everything up, doesn't it!

YAY for Daddy!!! Fabulous color choices....I look forward to the day that my kids get their own rooms.

love the colors!!! (And I, too, would agree that Sassy is a better choice of name for that color!)

It amazes me how gender specific my two are already. We were looking through a toy catalog yesterday and I asked Sarah if she wanted a Dinosaur and she said "No, that's a boy toy." She is quick to ID anything pink or purple or frilly as something her heart desires.

Beautiful rooms!

Isn't that funny? It's like all the brainwashing that Carter's did while they were babies finally settled in! I love those colors though.

I often wonder what colors the Crazies would choose if they were given a choice.

I bet they are in heaven! Way to go double daddy! I also bet it is weird to have "their own space" now!

Oh, I LOVE the colors! We're getting ready to do mermaids for Rachel, and pirates for Adam and Thomas.

Love the colors! We lived with white walls for a long time but I love our lively colors so much more. So great that you let the kids pick. Have a great Monday!

I love the rooms! How fun to have a cute pink room to call her own.

I hope you don't mind me jumping in on the fun...even though I didn't add the button or do a specific post. The linky was too cute to pass up.

Love their new rooms and color choices, very bold. Looks great!
