Some Assembly Required

I finally ordered a glider chair for Grace's room. She's just reaching the point where she's too heavy for me to just stand and sway back and forth until she falls asleep. I think a comfy chair is just the thing we (I) need.

This meant a trip last weekend to Babies "R" Us because, of course, all of my coupons say "valid on in store purchase only." That place is always understaffed and full of chaos! I guess that's to be expected in a military town where 7 babies are born every day at the base hospital! Even though I bought the chair in the store, they had to order it and call me when it was ready to be picked up. Thank you, BRU, you are so very convenient.

Ok, whining aside, I got the chair home and unloaded it from the car all by myself. I was feeling really proud and ambitious, so in a moment of clouded judgement, I decided to assemble the chair and surprise Cole.

I recruited my team (Grace and Griffin), and we set about assembling the glider.

How difficult can this be, right?

This looks pretty serious, but I will proceed with caution.

Looking at the "HARDWARE BAG" makes me break out in a cold sweat...

Grace, are you getting frustrated? Doubting my abilities? What happened to Griffin? Why isn't he helping?

Maybe we'll just lay out all of the pieces really nice and wait for Daddy to get home...
