This is Ms 9 yo. She is the youngest of the five girls. She shares a bedroom with her other sisters. She needed her own space, she said, so my youngest girl took it upon herself to carve out her own space in the house.
What I think is so funny about this is that she didn't pick a secluded spot somewhere in the deep recesses of the house (or basement for that matter). She chose a small corner of bare floor right in the den, tucked away in between the couch, a table and a chair.
She moved in her bean bag and back rest, a small pillow and a small blanket to keep her comfy. When she's sitting back there, you really can't see her because her head is below the arm of the couch, so I guess she is tucked away in her own little corner, just close enough, though, to feel safe :)
She also brought along one of her favorite pals - her tiny zebra called Zippy. Here she made her a comfortable spot to sleep and play. I love the striped chair made from a matchbox and that cool duct tape that comes in all kinds of different colors and designs.
Even her baby doll gets to join in the fun. I love to see her being so maternal :)
At first I thought this phase would die quickly, but she's been set up here for over a month now and seems to really enjoy her little corner of the world, where she can be "alone" but still be a part of the family.
