Something epic is bound to happen when you leave dad alone, with no escape. Yup, Blanket Fort Living Room Version 1.0.
You might think that is a weird name for a blanket structure, but I have to keep track somehow. Hopefully, the kiddo will start naming the fort from here on out, but today he just went with “Castle.” That’s just not descriptive enough to catalog the numerous blanket structures that will come through his lifetime. I am looking for Fort No-Girls, Awesome, or the effervescent Fort (insert kid’s name here).
This time I went for a structure instead of hiding in the closet he just never seems to check – don’t you tell him which one Lindsey. Yes, I built a blanket fort to hide and keep my two-year-old renewable energy source entertained while my wife had the car. You may ask why I didn’t take him outside. Welp, it’s been raining for days, and no car means no Muse or mall.
So it was either hide and seek or hide in plain sight. Today hiding in plain sight made the most sense.
Dad Challenge: Can you build a better blanket fort? Prove it on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Make sure you tag me. I need the inspiration for the next rainy week.
Word of advice: make sure you plan those trusses out.
