Fort Dazed



It was a cold day and so I decided to help Emily pass the boring day inside by building her a fort. She loved it. She would run underneath and pretend it was raining. She quickly decided to plug up all the holes to not let the "water" get in. She started to sing "Drip, drip, drop, little April showers" from Bambi as she hid. Soon she pulled a book in with her and sooner or later, I was pulled in too. I played to daughter who would get caught in the rain every time I had to get out to get the baby, answer the phone or whatever. Finally, mommy was getting bored, though Emmy was having a blast.

Since that one day Emily has asked me every day we have been stuck inside from cold weather, to build her a fort. Usually when I am on the phone and just want to give her some sort of entertainment. Just so all of you know who have been on the phone with me recently, I have probably talked with you at one point in the conversation from under a blanket-Bambi-thicket. And been told to keep my arm in so "it won't get wet." Good thing phones can't really get wet from pretend rain.

Good idea with the forts! Do remember our forts? Under mom's quilting frames? Nothing gets better than that!
