I wrote this song one day while waiting for Owen to wake up from his afternoon nap. On this particular day Owen slept a lot longer than usual. I found myself with precious free time but no idea what to do.
I decided to build a fort out of a large cardboard box. I cut out a window and a door and – voilà – a fort! I was super excited to see how Owen would react when he saw his new fort. So I sat down and waited for him to wake up…and waited…and waited…”Hmmm?” I thought. “What should I do now?” I had to do something with all the excitement I was feeling over yes, a cardboard box.
The first verse of the song was basically already written
I’m building a fort today
I’m hoping you will come and play
It has a window, it has a door
When you get here it will be so much more
Fun at the fort today, down at the fort today
and the rest just followed.
So now, here is the full song for your listening pleasure!
I hope you enjoy it!
