Today we built a tent out of blankets. Using the brooms' stick we propped up the middle of the blanket to keep the middle from sagging. We also turned the couch backwards and set up some chairs to help hold up the blanket!
Thomas loved the blanket tent.....
...but he liked to grab the walls of the tent and suck his thumb more. I guess that's what I should expect when I make a tent out of his favorite type of blanket.
He just wouldn't leave the tent walls alone!
He soon decided to have a little fun and slid in and out of the tent.
I thought we were missing a campfire so I set up the nightlight in the tent as a make believe fire.
Here's how it looks without the flash making everything seem white! Yes the lamp glow's red! Perfect for a fireplace!
After camping I decided to give Thomas a bath. Here he is tasting the soap.
Now he's using the soap to wash his body!
Don't ask me why but Thomas likes to drink his own bath water!
He also likes to chew on his bath toys!
After his bath I drape a towl over his shoulders and he clings to it while walking into the bedroom to get dressed for bed.
After getting dressed and having his hair combed Thomas will brush his teeth for me!
Then it's back to the tent where he repeatedly walks in and out. The tent is sagging just enough to brush his hair everytime he walks through the doorway. As a result his hair is dry within seconds.
He tried to hide in the darkest corner but the camera found him anyway!
I guess Thomas was done with the tent because he toppled it while I was still inside. Luckily I saw the two chairs falling towards me and was able to defend myself. But even toppling the tent onto me wasn't enough. He then had to climb on top of the blankets and me while I tried to figure out how to worm my way out from under the blankets, chairs, and him with my pregnant belly.
After a while of playing on top of the tent Thomas must have realized what he'd done cause he tried to lift the chairs back up. They were too heavy for him and I was done playing tent and didn't offer to lend a hand. He grunted for a while then gave up and continued playing on the pile of blankets!
