When I Was Your Age...

Sheesh! Am I really old enough to say these kinds of things?

Yes, Yes I am.

Nice to meet you.

My name is MawMaw.

I actually said this the other day. My kids were working on making a hidey-hole between our recliner and couch and covering it up. I couldn't let them not experience the GREATNESS of chair forts, now could I. And the conversation started with, "When I was your age..."

I wanted to slap myself silly.

But really, when I was her age, these were my FAVORITE things that my babysitter and I used to do.

So, this is what my living room has looked like for DAYS! And last night Hubs slipped in his laptop so they could watch "Bible Man" so I snuck a pic of that too.

And let me tell you...this thing has it all! Snacks, drinks, fake candles that light up, flashlights, toys, pillows, blankets, a lap writing desk (in case they need to journal?) among other various and asundry items.

Thank you for the memories.

Awwww...what fun! My sister and I used to do that too, but we also made houses/forts with the sheets that Mother hung on the clothes line. Boy does that age me! Fun, Fun, times!
