Simple is for GIRLS!

Can you believe Georgia Anne is already 6 months old? Today was the day to take down her cradle and re-do Chris' and my bedroom as a sanctuary. I love it as a nursery but am excited to have an oasis of calm on those busy days.

So my plan was to use a simple wrench to take down the cradle. I enlisted Timbo to be my handyman. You know it's always a great idea to allow the youngest child possible to do a job, so he was my man. He, in turn, asked his big bro to help him find the right wrench. He and Ben returned from the garage with the Mechanic's Toolbox full of socket thingies and the wrench thing that goes click click click when you turn it!! Yikes!

After Ben & Timothy spent 10 minutes trying to find the right size socket, I walked over and picked up a wrench and said, "Why don't you just use this?"

Ben's response? "Daddy said using a socket is easier!"

And when I asked Chris about this, he chuckled, "I'm surprised he didn't use the drill with socket attachment!"

Two words from Mom: OH BROTHER!!
