"Bachan, come see!"
"We made a Bachan fort!"
They sure did. They found Arielle's blanket and made a little fort of the bunk bed just for me! It was in their room as the Wreck Room was to be the most amazing boy fort. I guess they felt bad about not allowing me in last week. I was still separate but I had a special spot all my own.
Except the two-years-olds weren't about to leave me in the fort alone. They insisted on climbing in and cuddling and this frustrated Benny's plans of a male and female forts....and so he came up with a new plan. We moved all the chairs back to the dining room and he made a massive fort...a separate WING for each of us.
This worked well. We all climbed in, and I read a schoolbook to Benny. It was about mummies and mysteries, but I never caught the full name. I know it's an A - Z mystery.
