Who Needs A Playground

Just in time for winter Eli has discovered that I am a regular old jungle gym. We won't have to worry about snow-covered playgrounds and germ-infested indoor playlands. He just needs me sitting to have just as much fun.
He climbs up my back and falls over my shoulders onto my lap. He bends my legs for a tunnel to climb through and a slide to go down (the only slide he'll use, the ones at the playground much are too scary). If there's a blanket around he demands that it be draped over me to make a fort. He's pretty bossy, but I don't mind. It's super fun and how long will he want to play with me like this? (okay, probably a long time).
Here he is, taking a TV break on a fort, converted into a chair. He too likes multi-functional devices.

too cute. And yes, he will play like that with you for a long time. I have been the human jungle gym for years.
