What I Learned From The Modern Family Treehouse

Phil Dunphy was at it again. This time he decided to build a treehouse “for his son”.

If you are a regular viewer of the show you know that Phil isn’t the handiest of husbands but he does get an “A” for effort as he tackles most projects with vigor, if not knowledge.

When it comes to building a treehouse it’s definitely not something to take lightly and as the treehouse goes up even his son asks him if they should be using nails.

The issue here isn’t really how Phil builds the treehouse but why. I guess he’s seeking a place to call his own where he can hang out with his friends. In Phil’s case this treehouse will be his man cave and its not really for his son but his son does provide a nice excuse to build one.

Have you ever built something for your kids under the guise that they need it when actually you were looking at any opportunity to build it? Even an addition to a house or remodel. “The family is growing so time to expand the kitchen!”.

    Although this episode wasn’t laugh out loud funny it
    certainly was entertaining and had me smiling all the way through.  I think the loving relationships that were
    displayed were very endearing and the way that Jay went Salsa dancing with
    Gloria was wonderful.  Honestly I wouldn’t
    even have time to watch TV if I didn’t get a free DISH Network Sling adapter
    that gives me live or recorded TV from my employee DVR anywhere I go.  Now with my iPhone and Galaxy Tab I watch
    when I have spare time and still spend quality time with my family when I get home.
