Despite being tasked with most of the “blue” jobs around the house
, I’m not a handy person. We own a cordless drill, a hammer and a level. This means that I can hang pictures — but any home improvement projects beyond that simply don’t get done. Improvising a backyard swing
for my kids in the spring using the power drill and rope turned me into a construction queen to my kiddos, and since then they have been begging me to build them a treehouse. They’ve both outgrown the plastic toddler play structure and they can climb trees like monkeys. And now that they are getting older and play well together, they want their own secret space to play in.
