Kids are funny! And very creative. Just the other night my 4 year old twins decided they wanted different names. Apparently Casey and Reese just isn't good enough for them! So I decided to let them pick out their own names, just to see what they would come up with. This is a very entertainting experience! =)
Reese: 4 yrs old, daughter, new name: Christmas!
Casey: 4 yrs old, son, new name: Frosty the Snowman!
Wow, right? Imagine that! I asked my oldest son Riley what he wanted and he said "Riley" will do just fine, he is 7, and too mature for a new name. Too bad! At this point, all must pick a new name! The twins and I thought we would call him The Great Pumpkin. But he didn't like that! He decided Jack Skellington would be better, direct from the movie "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Daddy has decided to go by the name "Grinch." Not sure why, he isn't big and green and hairy!?!? Hmmm....And since all the kids had picked the best names I had no idea what to pick for myself! Not to worry, Reese, er, Christmas decided that since her and I are the only girls I would be called "Christmas Eve"! PERFECT!!!!
The kids are very happy with their new names! This last Saturday we attended my friend Jessica's graduation party (Congrats Jess!!!). Jessica's sons grandmother (did you keep that straight, lol) came up to my daughter and casually asked her what her name was, to which she promptly responded "Christmas!" HAHAHA I love it! Kids....always make you laugh!
