As a 12+ year business veteran, I have spent countless hours learning everything I can about photography and owning a small business. Let me put that knowledge to use to make you feel confident in your photos and help you level up your business.

oh hey

Shhhh.  Do you hear that?  It is quiet at my house.  Usually a quiet house means that the chanchos are into something they shouldn’t be.  Even during “quiet time” I hear a lot of giggling, fighting and “are we done yet?”.  But I have had about 2 hours of virtual silence.  I feel like I am on vacation and I have gotten SO MUCH DONE!

This is all brought to you by today’s Pinterest Challenge.  The kids are really getting into it.  After yesterdays fun ice excavation they woke up this morning asking what today’s challenge would be.  To be honest, I was going to do something crafty or make a special drink…but the begging children changed my mind.  So did the 15 minutes of crying and fighting after swim team practice.  So I took matters into my own hands and went to “The Chanchos” board.

And this is what I found.

Simple Ideas That Are Borderline Genius (41 Pictures). OMG I WISH PINTEREST WAS AROUND WHEN I WAS LITTLE.
Genius!  Why haven’t we thought of this before?  It is perfect for hot summer days.  I used the duvet cover from my bed and put a big fan in the hole at the bottom of the cover.  Turn on the fan and Viola!, you have a fan fort.  And you have 2 hours all to yourself.

I didn’t take any pictures for several reasons.

#1  DON’T UPSET THE BALANCE.  As soon as you poke your head in and disturb the force…it is all over.  It is just like saying “Oh, they are sleeping so good (or taking such a long nap)”.  Inevitably the kid wakes up 30 seconds later.  Or you say “they are playing so well together”.  It is the kiss of death and fighting will quickly ensue.  Seasoned parents have learned……just don’t say it!

#2 It is really dark in the room and it would be tough to really see anything.  The pictures above are about right and it really isn’t hard to duplicate.

I have a feeling we will be using this “pin” all summer long.  I even let them eat lunch in there.  Best mom ever (or a mom who just needs a break, you be the judge).

You really should try this.  It is much easier and requires a lot less “stuff” than a regular fort.  It even stays inflated and you don’t need anything to weigh it down or hold it up.

Mine even want to sleep in it tonight.  Heck, I want to sleep in it tonight!
