|Welcome to "The Play Nook".|
Where kids can just be kids.
|Open this child size door to:|
The only place in the house where doodling, coloring, painting, etc. on the walls
When my six year old unlatches this door.... he's in art heaven.
When friends come over, he makes sure they all autograph the wall or ceiling.
|Looking back through the door into Tori's room. |
You can tell this is an old photo as there is still a crib in her room!
When my four and two year old climb through the door and down the little step.... they enter into a world of pirates shooting canons through the railing down below at the enemy. Or soldiers in the civil war hiding out in their fort. And lately, it's been their little house, with Tori's three dolls to rock, feed, and put to sleep (all while keeping guns aimed at the enemy below, just in case!)
When we put our addition on two years ago, this was originally going to be a storage space behind the laundry room.
|Above where this door is cut-out, there had been a window looking out over the backyard.|
|As I'm looking at these old pictures, I'm thinking to myself,|
"did we really keep Tori sleeping in her room during this time?! Good grief!
|Hey, Grandma Kim! |
I do believe she got a few extra gray hairs before this project was finished.
|And here's the view looking down into our living room. Or, as Ty would say, the "enemy territory".|
So glad we decided to change this from storage into a play nook! Tori is too. I think she's napping and she's snuck into the play nook to spy. :)
