I sure love these two girls of mine! They've been constructing a "reading fort" in the corner of our bedroom, behind an armchair, where they read and play. Maia pushes the chair out a bit, pads the fort with a blanket and some pillows, then brings in teddy bears and dolls, an armload of books, and Daphne. I don't have anything against the reading fort they've been making, but it made me think it was time to bring out the "playhouse under the table" again (we had put it away to make room for our Christmas tree).
This time I padded the playhouse with a thin futon that Harry's mom sewed years ago. I covered the futon with a quilt and added some pillows and a basket of books to make it an extra cozy place to read and play.
It is, and Maia's been reading to Daphne in it since! Or a combination of reading and "reading" anyway.
And Daphne goes in there on her own as well to look through her books which is adorable. I love it! Love the space itself and love that they use it for reading and looking at books. I think I might curl up in here with a book soon, myself… Who wouldn't want to?
