Give a boy a box

Isn’t it amazing how much kids love empty boxes?  You can spend tons of money on the latest thing-a-ma-gigger 2000 but they are more interested in the box.

Last week my M-in-L bought two new pool lounge chairs and gifted Addison the boxes they came in.

Saturday afternoon I came home from a much needed pedicure to find this…

Cardboard fort complete with banner, mail box and two entrances.  A big one for big brother and a small one for little brother.

Addison made Harry a little book so he could have something for the mailbox.  Harry would put it in the mailbox then immediately take it and out and exclaim “look! I got mail!”  This happened repeatedly until the mailbox fell off, to Addison’s frustration.

Sunday night Addison wanted to sleep in his fort.  Who am I to deny the summer time wishes of a 7 year old boy?

This lasted for all about 5 minutes.  He then decided it was too hot and cramped and headed back to his room.

I wonder how long this cardboard fort is going to grace my living room?
