Secret Hide Out

DSC05607
This is Jack and Stella's "secret hide out". Heidi gave us this shredded orange curtain, we hung it up in a corner threw a bunch of pillows on the ground and the kids love it. Every night we go into the secret hide out and read stories to the kids. Jack's favorite story right now is called "No David". It's about a little boy who gets in lots of trouble. Whenever we get to the page where his mom tells him to stop picking his nose Jack immediately starts picking HIS nose. During the day when Jack goes into the secret hide out we pretend he's invisible. I'll start calling for him, asking where he is. Then he pulls back the curtain and jumps out. He loves it.

That curtain is such a great idea!! IKEA, huh? I'll have to keep an eye out next time we're there. We are big fans of the No David books here too. My son's named Davey, and if he starts getting an attitude with us, all we have to do is say "are you being a No David?" and he'll quit. Quite amazing the impact that book has had on our lives! :)

What a fun place! My son loves the David books too! I love the illustrations. Check out these books too, also illustrated by David Shannon. They are brilliant:
-How I Became A Pirate
-Alice the Fairy
-A Bad Case of the Stripes

I love how he captures the children's spirits.

Oh that is so cute. I love the orange curtain and I love when kids hide and really believe you can't see them or know where they are!
