I put up one of these kids’ tents with a tunnel attached to it for Klara. She loves playing in it. But when I got into the tunnel to play with her, God, I enjoyed being in it so much that it’s weird. Just being in this tiny, boxed in space was beyond pleasant. I didn’t want to come out. 

And yes, obviously, the tunnel is symbolic of the birth canal. 

I’m weird.

    My kids make forts out of the couch cushions. It’s fun to be inside with them. I don’t know if it’s just spending time with them or if it’s the structure itself. But it’s fun!

    Why is that weird? Pillow forts are a staple of children’s play. And ‘Community’ even did a whole episode on that with grown up. 🙂
