Secret Fort - revisited
Written on July 2, 2007 by Kevin.
My wife was having a rough pregnancy day on Saturday so it was my job to make sure that Rylan didn't wake her up. We played downstairs for a bit and quickly realized that Rylan would prefer to pick at my wife somehow rather than reading a book. I figured this was a great opportunity to reintroduce the good ol' secret fort.
I took Rylan upstairs and got out our largest bed sheet. We currently have Rylan's bed in our room so I draped the sheet from our bed to his. Using a bit of props, I got it to stay up and I showed Rylan how to get inside. He was thrilled like before. I figured it would be a good idea to have some of Rylan's friends over as well so I grabbed Mickey and put him next to him.
Rylan, the smart guy that he is, decided he would like to introduce all of his buddies to this new secret fort. He went out and grabbed Pooh bear and brought him back in. We gathered the rest of his stuffed toys including Donald, Huey, Dewey and Louie. We had the whole Disney crew hanging out in the secret fort. We were all in heaven.
I grabbed a few books and Rylan was now interested in reading them with me. He stepped out a few times to grab a few more books himself. We laid there for quite a bit just reading books. What a great weekend.
Rylan's good mood stayed through the rest of the day as we went out shopping, eating and even the play area. This may have been the best day for Rylan in months. We had dinner at home and Rylan was given some pie as a treat to finish off the day. It was a great day and just overall relaxing like the weekend should be.
