I’ve been a wee bit distracted lately. I’m preparing for my grandson a.k.a. Chunky Monkey, daughter, and favorite son-in-law (don’t tell him, but he’s my only son-in-law) upcoming visit!
The kids are flying in this weekend so I need to get a few things to prepare to have a baby in the house. I had my daughter send me a list of things to borrow: high chair, pack-n-play, rear facing car seat, and the like! Good thing I don’t work with people my age!! Thankfully my coworkers are supplying me with all the necessities both large and small.
Tonight I spent the evening learning how to use this contraption!
I did manage to get the Pack-n-Play open and stable so that’s ready to go! I don’t know if I could have ever gotten the car seat in place without help. I’m very grateful when my coworker offered to install that bad boy in my back seat. A gymnastic feat was involved in securing the straps. All that’s left to do is to buy some diapers, wipes, and a whole lot of Cheerios!
Sounds like you are gearing up for some fun. Don’t forget to wear ATGATT when changing those diapers. Or at least a close pin on the nose. 🙂
We had family stay with us when they adopted a newborn from Florida and needed to wait 2 weeks for paperwork before they could go home to Canada.
We too borrowed a pack and play to use as a crib and it wasn’t too bad to put together. A bit of an adventure since we’ve had zero experience with those types of contraptions.
You are so funny! Never thought about ATGATT for diaper changing.
My coworker offered her 6 year old to teach me how to open the stroller. I just may take her up on that offer!
Sounds like a lot of crazy fun coming your way. Good luck getting that pack and play folded back up! LOL. Assembly is the easy part. I don’t think I have ever successfully dismantled one of those things solo.
Kathy -the stroller was even harder! Guess I better line-up that six year old for back-up!
Enjoy your wee chunky monkey! Baby contraptions can be extremely hard to operate and frustrating. Enjoy your visit with your daughter & son-in-law,
Thank you Dar! I will be so great to have them with us for a week.
Yippee! A visit from the chunkmeister. I do feel your pain when it comes to all those contraptions. I never had a problem with the car seat or the stoller. It was that stinkin’ playpen that taunted me. Just as I thought one side had popped in, it popped out when I went for the next side. I’m pretty sure I heard it chuckling at me.
Hope you all have a great visit. And remember, Cheerios definitely qualify for the 5 minute rule. Enjoy!
Thanks Todd! I do believe Chunky Monkey believes in the 5 minute rule!
