In Urban Jungle Exploring Ben and Zoe built a camp in the garden using whatever they could lay their hands on. But what use is a camp if you can’t sleep in it? How could Dad resist when they asked so nicely and as Mo was out I couldn’t get a second opinion so I said yes until Mum comes home:
Miss independent, Lara decided that she wanted to be inside and get a Daddy story, although I feel she might have felt a bit squeezed out given the cosy space in the camp and was putting gloss on the situation.
When Mum returned at midnight we carried them inside to camp in the lounge, a sensible decision as when we woke the next day it had rained. Lucky escape or a missed opportunity to learn about shelter roof construction?
