When Tobie gets a red face at school, they have 3 colors, red being the worst, he is grounded from T.V. and playing with friends for that afternoon. This is what resulted in the grounding, a magnificent fort! I loved building forts when I was younger and I guess I still do. Tobie was trying so hard to make this work, but Mommy with her Architectural degree in fort building came in to complete the task. I didn't get in it, the laughs and giggles from inside the fort were enough for me. The cats scratching post is in the middle for support.
A look inside. Here is Tobie really enjoying the fort. Miriam really liked it to, I just couldn't get her to look at the camera. So that night as I am putting Tobie to bed I go through my usual speech that "we're going to try harder tomorrow to get a green face, right?" Tobie says, "If I get a red face can we build the fort again!". He tends to find the silver lining in all types of situations. He did get a green face the next day, so hopefully he learned his lesson in the fort. =)
Happy 43rd Birthday Matt!
