There's a light at the end of the tunnel...

Literally.






Chris is definitely the "fun" dad. He and Evie sneak around and have Rita's together, work in the shop, rough-house, and he's already teaching her about potty-humor... so that's great. It makes my heart smile when I hear Evie belly-laughing with her dad; she's pretty crazy about him. (So is her mom. :)

This past weekend, Chris had a Stray Lights purchase shipped in some giant boxes. Me, the un-fun mom, was ready to break them down and put them in the recycling pile. Chris had other ideas. Maybe some of you have made forts out of old refrigerator boxes, so you may be thinking, "what's the big deal?" But I ask you-- did your forts have LIGHTS?!?!? And a skylight? And a hidden escape door? Is your fort over eight feet long and currently residing behind the furniture in your living room? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Don't hate cause your baby daddy ain't as cool as my baby daddy.

I laugh because MINE did! When my dad moved into his new apt, he built a major cardboard house with my little bro. It had a fire place with a "fire" (ie flashlight), front door, windows, etc. It was major and it was made out of appliance boxes and duct tape.

Wow! This brings back some FUN memories. I still remember a couple times when we got new appliances where I built some pretty cool "houses" of my own out of cardboard. I had doors, windows (with fabric curtains). But I never did think of the fireplace thing:(

Thanks for sharing the pics and giving me a bit of nostalgia! :)
