To any parent who has ever bought something like this, I tip my hat. Because what they don't show on the box is that it comes looking like this:
I bought this adorable play kitchen for the nursery because I decided that we needed more things for pretend play. My sister, Lu, who had come over for a Mexican food, Glee, & So You Think You Can Dance date, volunteered to help me put it together. At first, it went very well....
but later into the process, it took a turn for the worse.
Eventually, we had this as our finished product.
I'm just thankful that Lu could "think of the children" instead of smashing this whole thing into a million plastic bits.
