Let's build a fort

The kids have discovered the JOY of building forts. If only it gave me as much joy.

This particular fort was built by the kids within FIVE minutes of me cleaning the toy loft.  I got FIVE minutes to enjoy all my hard work.  {sigh}

I'm trying to relax a little and not let the messes bother me....fort building is a fundamental part of childhood.

But I do have to say, the kids had so much fun with it.  Hunter even took a nap in there-- I didn't have to get after him once that day!

Our new family rule is: you have to ask mommy before you begin building a fort.

Oh my goodness... that is quite fun, but quite a mess. You are such a good mommy to let their creativity shine. :) They are so cute!! Just gotta laugh, right? Okay, getting so excited to see you guys!! Yay!! Can't wait.

So glad to hear that I'm not the only mom who has a love-hate relationship with kids using their imaginations!
