December 26th

This conversation with my daughter that took place on December 26th. Keep in mind this happened before I had proper levels of caffeine in my system and while I was still in my bathrobe.


Mom?

Yes sweetie.

Can we put together my Lego Dolphin Cruiser?

Uh-okay sweetie.

Daughter quickly runs and retrieves box with the Lego Dolphin Cruiser in it from under the tree. She brings it gleefully into her bedroom.  I get my camera and decide to document the process of putting it together. 



I open the box and several bags of Lego blocks fall out and not one, but two instruction books.

What?!! Two instruction books!


That's when I look at the box again and one very important detail sinks in. 


612 pieces. What have I done?

Daughter laughs maniacally.

    2. Did you put it together? Let's see the finished product. lol When my children were you I purposely avoided toys like that. I knew I didn't have the patience for it. My hat is off to you.
