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?
