Exersaucer -1, Me - 0

That's it.
I fully admit defeat.
Me and children's toys do NOT get along.
Why do they have to make it so stinkin' hard to put these things together?!?
I mean really.
I'm smart.
I can read.
I went to college.
I have a degree.
But an exersaucer?
That's what trips me up at the end of the day?

It looks all nice and pretty on the box.
See that stupid smiling baby?
His mommy is obviously smarter than me,
Because I can't for the life of me get that freakin' piano on.
Apparently you're supposed to be able to lock it in with the simple twist of a button.
You know what I did with mine after several hours (ok it was probably 5 minutes) of trying?
Picked it up and threw it at the wall.
I did.
I went there.
And it felt good.

LMAO!!! I agree should be easier to put together. One year I bought Ellie a giant kitchen. We ended up finishing it with about 8 screws left. Never figured out where those screws went. It stayed together though. XOXO

I don't blame you - toy makers need to understand Mom's don't want to think that hard! It should totally just come completely assembled :)

Melissa said...

I wouldn't be able to put that together! I'd make my husband do it because I would wind up throwing it just like you did.

Ummm, I can't even find the piano in the picture, so I guess I would be an even bigger disappointment.

Good for you for throwing it.

Annie said...

Molly said...

hahaha, after 2 1/2 years of putting this plastic shit together, I totally agree with this post!

I don't know if I could get that stuff put together either!

Allison @ I heart Change said...

Lol. I hate it when that happens! I can never get the stupid kid toys out of the box. It takes forever to unwind all the twist ties. Ugh.

Jordan said...

LOL!!! Hilarious.. Sometimes I think they take those "baby proof" things too far.. I'm glad you won the battle today!

hahahaha! When I was at my parent's house cleaning out the attic, I came across an old doll carriage..with the handle on backwards. And it was OBVIOUSLY backwards. I asked what it was about and my mom said "Oh, right.. that was the year your dad and I thought putting together a rocking horse AND a baby carriage on Christmas eve was a good idea. Needless to say we got a little frustrated and at 2am, it didn't seem like it was backwards..and you loved it. So whatever." hahaha!
