The children ALL love to hide in the curtain we use instead of a door for our front room. It’s orange, heavy, enveloping, long – when they are wrapped in it there’s a big space over their heads where no-one is, and no-one can see anything of them but their feet. You can wrap three children in it quite effectively, except for the giggling.
It drives me nuts. Pulling out of curtains drives me bonkers.
This is ridiculous. It clearly gives them some sort of space – like a blanket cave, or a duvet tent, or something – and it does no harm whatsoever. I should actually consider getting them more curtains to hide in, not fewer. This particular curtain is in no danger of coming unfastened anyway, and even if it did the children are perfectly capable of helping me to fix it.
I can now choose a different battle, with the energy I was wasting on this one. Gosh.
