A few weeks ago on Cowgirl Clippings, Chelsea shared a tent idea that she found on the blog, The Artful Parent.
Oh my, it was love at first sight.
I love forts, always have. BUT...and it's a big BUT... now as a parent and a stay at home mom trying to keep some order to the chaos I have started to loathe the building of forts, because it takes all my chairs and strews many blankets across the floor, house and furniture. BUT...and it's another big BUT... just because it may irk me some does not give me a good excuse to deprive my children of the joy of fort building.
So today I pulled out my sewing machine, a couple old sheets, an old table cloth, and a basket of leftover quilt binding and got to work.
And here you have it:
Three windows and a door, and the oldest three are, as I type, enjoying it fully.
I've even gotten a few random hugs of joys and a thank you every couple minutes!
I'm going to go see if I can squeeze in and join them.
