Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of a good Pillow Fort. But, part of good parenting is the ability to deflect and ignore the obnoxious demands of your, way too early rising, 9 year old just long enough for them to fall back to sleep again. "Oh, you want to build a pillow fort, in matching socks, at 4:30am, do you? Sounds great! I'm going to need you to close your eyes and envision it in your head for a few minutes, so we're prepared." Pictured: Minutes later, a pillow fort successfully averted.
