The fort...

I was washing all the couch slipcovers so it seemed like a good day for a fort.

The suggestion put a smile on both boy's faces and I thought for sure it would be the key to a peaceful afternoon.

We built it...

 they crawled inside...

 then they spent the next 30 minutes asking, "Can we wreck it now?"

I suggested playing "jail", "zoo", "boat", or "garage" with the appropriate toys brought in. They snarled at all those suggestions and continued on in their broken record stance, "Can we wreck it now?"

So I forced 20 minutes of reading on them (inside the fort) so that I felt I got the time I invested in it worth it - then gave into their pleas.

I do not understand boys nor how to entertain them.
