So we decided not to set up any of Karina’s toys until Christmas Eve, and by we I mean Boris, and since setting up the kitchen was taking Boris a long time I took it upon myself to set up the cozy coupe. Now I’m sure I’ve mentioned before but I am totally mechanically challenged. I really am. Except for the time I set up my table. Whatever. Plastic is not my forte.
So basically I couldn’t get these little pin things into the cozy coupe and gave up. I tried hitting them. I have a huge bruise on the side of my hand.
That was as far as I could get it. I delegated the task to Boris, but after 3 hours on the toy kitchen, and many beers he was not up to the task.
So we left the cozy coupe with out wheels and figured we would finish it in the morning. At least the kitchen was a success.
We woke up and did presents. Karina was very impressed with everything, she said “Wow” when she opened every gift. She does not take after my sister. Another story for another blog post… Anyway. We kind of hid the cozy coupe, I mean as much as you can hide a plastic behemoth, and she saw it and dragged it out. And sat in and was so happy. Unfortunately the car had no wheels.
So it basically looked like she left her car in a bad neighborhood and some criminals stole the wheels off of her car.
But daddy fixed her car and it became her favorite toy to play with. Except she hasn’t quite figured out to move the car and we have to push her.
And I will spare you from what I’m sure what would be the 123145th obnoxious picture of a pile of presents and instead show you how Karina wants to be a mini-me in her play kitchen!
I’m pretty sure her spatula is nicer than mine…
But obviously we were happiest to have Boris home for Christmas!
