However right now she seems to have little interest but the wife keeps telling me that will change when we get her toys down there.
Ha Ha Your doghouse.

How old is your little girl?
I can tell you from experience, (I have 2 not so little girls) (13 and 11), that she will absolutely love it.

And believe it or not, as they get older, they want to be in their own little space away from everyone else.

If your little one doesn't like it, just keep having more little ones.

She is 5. It was funny she lost her first tooth on her birthday. She was so happy. Never seen a kid that happy to loose something. I hope you are right and she uses it more. She is the one and only child. The wife and I waited 11 years before we decided to have a kid. I am turning 40 (not old I know) but I can not keep up with her the same way some of her 25 year old friends parents can. Sure I can hold my own but it seems to take a tole on me. These 25 year olds are like energizer bunnies.

25 year olds may have more energy, but older parents make better parents, in my opinion, because we've "been there, and done that."


Did you not know that losing a tooth, is a "status symbol".

Tooth fairy time.

The fairy gave her a buck and my daughter will not spend it. She made me put it in the scrap book. It came from the ferry after all. The one thing I really like about being an older parent is we can afford to do things a lot of her Friends can not. I know I did not have much when I was 25 and I did not have children. We know how cheap they are to raise. My wife is already talking about prom dresses (can only wear them once then you get another one). I did not know this but she informs me that is the way it is. So like a true man I said YES DEAR.

I totally agree.

Remember, keep her little tooth in the scrap book too.

You're a good man. Just keep saying yes dear. You'll have no problems.

Only used it once, get used to it. I have 3 darling daughters so I'll give you the short list on things they'll only use once. Clothes, shoes, and your wifes car (she'll use that the day she takes her driving test). So get yourself a recliner and a TV, some boxes (you can store the clothes that she wont wear and wont throw away in the loft) and enjoy the playhouse/doghouse! You wont need a welcome mat as you are one. Kids are great and nice job.

I've checked back into diy to see what's going on...
I see your daughter's playhouse is quite a hit, as well it should be. You really have done an outstanding job! I love the red with white trim. Cute! Cute!

Thanks guys and gals. I have been on vacation for a while and just took a walk around the house and guess what. The inside hand prints did not get limited just to the inside (like I thought they did). Their are a few on the red and one smack dab in the middle of one of the white doors. Thinking about rounding up the little varmints and doing some finger printing. Must admit the one on the door is cute. I have a hunch what friend did it. You guys know the one friend your kid has that always seems to get into things. Can't wait to give his parents a hard time when I see them (after I have confirmed he is the guilty party).

Nice playhouse Warner. I know my kids would like it. If you get a chance, change your account settings to allow email messages. I thought I'd drop you an email outside of this forum, but you have your account blocked.

Well I am back from another vacation ( the rough life of a house hubby). I built it from a handyman magazine. I modified a few things. But the idea was inspired by the magazine and I was ordered to build it ( the wife).
