My fabulous friends and neighbors threw a welcome home open house for Collin last weekend. One sweet family got him a Go Diego Go! tricycle. (Thanks again Jonie and family, he absolutely loves it!) I was totally excited for him. Until I started reading the instructions which started with "adult assembly required". I experienced a few moments of sheer panic when I looked around and realized...that was me. Oh boy. After a few deep breaths, and a little internal pep talk, I grabbed my trusty set of pink tools and went to work.
Bless, his little heart, Collin seemed to have complete confidence in me. He even offered to help keep it steady while I put the wheels on. At least that's what I decided he meant when he plopped down on it out of nowhere and refused to move. Now come on, doesn't that look like complete confidence on his face?
It probably took about three times longer than it would have taken grandpa or uncle Jed to do it, but in the end:
Mommy was still the hero and that face made it totally worth it! Bring on the swing set! Okay, really don't. Pink tools can only go so far... Thanks again Kristin and Mandi for organizing and all of our friends for coming. We had a blast!
