Sunday morning fort

Like most kids, we go in cycles with books.  We might read the same book over and over for days, and then we don't pick it up for months.  Lately, we've read a lot of "If you give a pig a party."  I was the first one to get up this morning and was hanging out in the paint room, when Em came in and said, "I want to do what the pig does."

At first, I wasn't sure what she meant.  I mean, it was before 7am and I hadn't finished my first cup of coffee yet.  Then she said, "in the book" and I knew right away what she meant, but by that time she was off to find the book so she could show me.  Sure enough, she wanted a fort.
So I built a small one, which she is still arguing with me that it needs to be bigger.  I also gave her a 'mix.' We do mixes around our house when we are on the go, or for the occasional break out of the mold breakfasts.  Mixes go into a plastic bag and are usually a combination of cereal, raisins, craisins, nuts, some times pretzels, and always a small spoon of chocolate chips to make it fun.  We just dump it all in, and shake.  I must have shook the bag extra good this morning because I was just asked, "why did you hide the chocolate chips so good?"

Hope your Sunday is filled with things you love.
