Sad Story: Treehouse Climb

When my father was still alive, we were friends with the son of one of his co-workers. His son had a tree-house, which looked really cool when I was six. My brothers Zach and Brandon were there, and at the time they were seven and nine. He invited us to go the tree house so I was the last person to get on the ladder. About half-way up, my mother comes outside and screams at me for trying to climb up to the tree-house. Middle Children always complain that the baby of the family gets treated differently, and that's certainly true. But that's not always a good thing.

I always wanted a tree-house when I was a kid. That tree house in Swiss Family Robinson haunted my dreams.

When we lived in the country, we had hand made lot of things, But, do not recall a tree house. Remember it is a natural for a mother to be concerned about the younger one.

My Dad built our tree house low enough, so the youngest could climb it. The youngest would tie a rope around the dog and pull him up! It was so funny.

I can relate with your mom. I expect my son can relate with you ;) I was a bit of a hypocrite because I was a tomboy when I was young and used to climb the trees with the boys. Still, I don't feel too bad. He used to do all kinds of fun stuff with his friends when I wasn't around and as he got older I loosened up a bit.

That tree house in the picture is great. I want one like that!
Oh no! I'm sure it sucked back then that you weren't allowed to get in the tree house ;) Did you climb into it any time later?

When I was a child and I saw american films with houses on trees I wanted to have one. I think it is the dream of every child. Kisses:)

We had a tree house for our little boy...and he LOVED it.
Then, Mr. Sweet built one for our grands when they were all little.
