I’m not entirely sure what brought about the sign, as we haven’t actually met any neighbor girls, unless you count the one that lives in the apartment next to us that they have seen on the stairs. Maybe he is just making it clear that should the neighbor wander in to our apartment and into his room that she is not allowed in his fort.
Maybe he just wants a place all of his own. He is Not the baby anymore after all.
He is however the one that wants to sit in your lap, rub your arm, scratch your back or fix our hair. If his father and I are sitting together, he wants to be there in the midst of it. In the mornings he is often found wedged between us or on top if he can’t make it in with his arms wrapped around our heads.
Perhaps it is seemly constant need to be in ‘our pockets’ as my friend would say that makes the Fort and signage so ironic.
But then again, adorably six year old ish.
