see... i am a good mom.
and, when they BEG to SPEND THE NIGHT in their fort...
i only threaten them with minor torture and gentle death if i hear them giggle ONE TIME.
ONCE and the fort is under siege.
gratefully, they are getting older.
and, they really can go to sleep in a fort... all four of the big kids.
and now... we get to CLEAN UP all the blankets and books and SAFETY PINS that are attached to the curtains...
ps. building forts is bad...
but, not as bad as when they play "shopping" or worse "moving".
i HATE those games.
forts... mild by comparison.
and, what would your childhood be like if you could NEVER build a fort.
childhood without forts is like hot chocolate without whipped cream.
