i love kids.
especially two-almost-three year olds.
i babysat taylor daukas tonight. and we made a fort. do you remember forts? i remember forts. forts were the best! at our old house we had these barstool chairs that were rather tall, so they made the best fort posts. tonight we used the dining room chairs and the comforter from mom and dad’s bed. it was great. taylor kept calling it her house. “let’s go into my house!” she would say and i would follow her army-crawl style into the house, carefully voiding the broomstick in the middle which provided the majestic vaulted ceiling. we ate dinner in the fort- er, i mean, her house. and we pretended to sleep. it was great.
alas, we had to clean it up before bed time, though, which is always so anticlimactic.
