Day 249: Dashing

So, while I was pregnant with Baby, I did some research on the "baby essentials" that we didn't currently own.  One of these was the Excersaucer/Playstation.  We got one for free when Sweet P was a baby, but it was probably one of the first ever made and had hardly anything on it.  Consequently, neither of the oldest two ever showed much interest in it.  Sold it for $5 at a tag sale.  Sweet.

Anyway, I found one that I absolutely loved called "Around We Go", by Bright Starts.  But I didn't buy it b/c the baby wasn't even born yet.  Let alone capable of sitting up.

Why am I telling you all of this?  Because I'm going through a bit of an identity crisis today and rambling about something unimportant is somehow helping my subconscious to work through it.  Or to keep avoiding it.  I'm not really sure.  But nothing came out when I tried to type about it here, or when I tried to explain it to HH.  So, you're getting the thrilling history of Baby B's newest play thing instead.

Hooray for you.

Anyway, I ordered it on Monday.  Super excited!  Right?  It came today (love Amazon and their free shipping).  And that was my Joyful Moment.  Made Joyful Moment-er by the fact that it actually arrived a day early.  Yay!  So, Little M and I set to work putting it together.  Everything went great until it came time to put on the legs.  I put the first one on easy peasy.  But the second one would not go on, no matter how I tried.  Then I gave it a closer look and realized that it wasn't ever going to fit on right.  Because it was the wrong piece.

I love living in denial, so I tried to put it on a few more times before I finally had to give up.  I called the company and they're sending a replacement piece.  In 5-8 days.  Way to go and dash today's JM.  Ah, well.  Such is life.

At least it will only take two shakes to put it together once the piece finally does arrive.

Wishing you all completely un-dashed Joyful Moments!

I love you Cheryl. I hope things are better today. That plaything looks so cool! Please let me know how Treyton likes it- maybe it will be Wyatt's Christmas present.

Way to look on the bright side? And how long is one shake? j/k

I had my brother and his wife, and my sister and her fiance over for dinner tonight. It was filled with joyful moments.
