More Than A Tent

Journaling reads: We may have only spent one night actually sleeping in the tent, but Lukas begged for it to stay up for a while. We agreed that it could stay up until it rained next. Lukas spent almost every daylight hour in it, he dragged teddies in there for picnics, took his portable dvd in there to watch films, he pretended it was everything from a cave, to a castle, a playhouse to a hospital.. He was in and out of it all day long, always dragging me in to show me what he was playing and imagining in his private little hidey hole. Who would have thought that something so simple would make him so cotent. When the rain came and the tent finally came down, he had the mother of all tantrums, lots of screaming and crying and begging for it to stay up. It broke my heart to take it away from him, but it would have ended up wrecked in the rain.
