A "good enough" mom muses about alpha moms, adoption, computers, the State Of The World, Internet quirkiness, and the Kosmik All
Christmas notes

"Some assembly required."

Those are the most fearsome words that a parent can hear, sending a frisson of fear down the spine.  OmegaGranny is going to have a lovely pictorial of "some assembly required".

The Barbie Jammin' Jeep ("some assembly required") has a radio.  The radio, when turned on, was tuned to NPR.  That is a Christmas miracle! 

Children of a "certain age" will not wait until mom and dad really want to wake up to dash out into the living room to see what Santa brought.  Santa brought OmegaDotter a wooden Breyer barn ("some assembly required"). 


It did not bring the same squeal that the BJJ did, but Spirit is now climbing on the roof of the barn, accompanied by a paint and many neighs, plus the sounds of Morning Edition.

Santa brought me a bunch of 60-minute massages.  Santa was very good!  (NO assembly required, woohoo!)

    "Some assembly required" is right up there with the toy packaging. Are they designed to withstand a cyclone? I spent half the day untwisting those flippin ties.

    Anon--Oy, yes, I feel your pain! This year, we had a lot less of the twisty-ties than last year, thank heavens!
