My friend gave me a great idea.
Why not install lighting in our box fort?
My son doesn’t like the dark and I certainly wasn’t going to let him use one of my lamps.
We had these lights in our closet from Christmas. ( Yes, I’m really organized…not!)
When I leave the house I always tell my little guy to “hold down the fort” and “don’t burn the house down”.
(I’m lucky to have a fifteen year old son who is an excellent babysitter!)
Did you know that “hold down the fort” originally meant to protect against the stereotypical “savage” Native American intruders.
The army soldiers or settlers saw the ‘fort’ as their refuge from their perceived ‘enemy’.
I learn something new everything day!
