I decided to clean out the closet under the stairs early this week to make a little hidey hole for the boys. I thought the kid cave was a good name for it, but Christopher has dubbed it the little boy fort. Here's how it looked when I started:
I cleaned it all out, vacuumed up the dead bugs, cleaned the baseboards, and voila, ready for little boys.
I added an old comforter, a bunch of extra pillows, and 2 battery-powered pop lights and now it's a fun place for little boys to go hide (or play the turn-around-until-we-fall-down game)!
