Often, the little things that we were never allowed to do as children stick in our minds, becoming an odd sort of nostalgia for what never was. The beauty of time is that it often presents us with new opportunities and perspectives, allowing us to revisit those unfulfilled dreams. Such instances also tend to happen when we least expect them. Reddit user u/SadisticBuddhist shared a heartwarming post about how his girlfriend fulfilled one of his childhood dreams.

The boyfriend revealed that he was not allowed to create blanket forts during his childhood. When his girlfriend learned about this, she decided to make up for it by creating the most elaborate blanket fort she could devise. The man shared pictures in the post, showcasing the impressive edifice constructed with what appears to be every sheet and blanket in the home.

Another image taken from inside the blanket fort allowed viewers into a most impressive media viewing chamber, featuring two stuffed toys and a cozy view of the TV.

Still, another image displayed a bountiful feast, mostly Pringles and Combos, that his girlfriend thoughtfully provided as part of the "blanket fort" experience.

Another individual, u/Pleasant_Writing_598, expressed, "This is awesome in so many ways. She is thoughtful and sweet. It brings back memories. We loved blanket forts growing up and I also made them for my kids."

u/Japainsta-1990 shared, "My ex never had a birthday party even as a child, so I gave him one with all the silly kid party games and a theme cake. He really enjoyed it."

u/Cocosito commented, "This woman is a national treasure. I hope you guys love each other forever."

Small hiding spaces are a core part of childhood memories for everyone. A man named Jamie Simpson—who goes by @embracingecho on Instagram—shared a heartwarming moment of the adorable hiding space of her daughter and their family dog, Echo. She starts the video by saying, "Okay, I am whispering because I already know where they are now. We just moved and I was fixing that tent over there." She reveals how her daughter likes to stay in the cabinets of their new home because it acts like a cool hiding spot.

She indulges her toddler by placing blankets inside these cabinets. Simpson shares, "If you have seen my last couple of videos, then you might know that Echo is not afraid of a good hiding spot. And look where I found them." The mother points her camera towards a cabinet that is half-opened, where viewers get to see the girl's head poking out. Simpson comments, "Is this not the cutest thing ever?" She opens the door to reveal Echo peacefully sitting next to her.
