"Yes!" Mama: Building Forts

A random little fact about me: I am AWESOME at building blanket forts. Just ask my younger brother. We spent many of our childhood days in forts that I build for us. Some of my favorites were when my mum and I would hang sheets and blankets outside on the clothesline. You could make castles out there! Seriously, so cool.
Anyway, recently I've noticed Jonah climbing under things just to sit and be. Like the kitchen table, chairs, a few of his toys...etc. So I figured it might be time to introduce him to the blanket fort. I was a little hesitant at first because he loves to destroy things as well... like mama's nicely folded laundry; but for the sake of being a "Yes!" mama, I decided it couldn't hurt.

Our first blanket fort... built under the kitchen table.

Forts are good for cuddling your stuffed animals....
They are also great for reading books!
Or just lounging around on mama's nice pillows...
But then, in the end, there must always be a time for TOTAL DESTRUCTION!
I think it's safe to say that Fort Building was a great success, and there will be many, many forts in our future.
