It’s why i love making items they’re so much greater memorable. So with this in thoughts, I determined to make at the least one present for his birthday on the quit of January.
DIY Hand revealed Play Tent
He’d been getting himself into some sticky situations, actually getting caught in and beneath things (that boy) so I had the concept to make him a tent. with any luck feed the urge to discover with out it taking 3 humans to remove him from the coffee table cage (one to turn his head and to boost and slide).
I have to give myself mom brownie factors for this. He without delay got the tent vibe and spent hours (haha! now not hours actually, but any time spent on one pastime that is greater than three seconds seems like a win) crawling from one stop to the other. Our other birthday gift to him? A toy vacuum (this youngster LOVES it after I vacuum). Now he vacuums interior his tent! I’m bringing my boy up proper (if he nevertheless does this while he’s a teen I’ll make my tens of millions writing parenting books! because i might actually buy that e book.)
