The Directions

"Mom, I need the directions."

My 5 year old Bubby, says this every time we open a new toy from his birthday.

Oh yeah, let me get those out of the trashcan.

I am finding this pretty funny considering Hubby pours over the directions before he puts something together, where I am more of a figure it out as I go along kinda gal.

Funny thing is that I never have parts left over. The other day I found a box of tools and in it were left over parts from a shelf that my husband was putting together some time ago.

A. Whole. Lotta. Parts.

This is with the directions.

See, why do you even need them?

It's like legos. I'm always amazed how things get put together/stay together in my house.

You must be an amazing woman. I use directions, my husband does not. I thought it was just men...LOL.

That is too funny! Hubby and I are the same way. He will read the directions three times before he touches anything. I however, just make it up as I go. Somehow, we both usually end up with the same end result. :)

we once put together a BBQ Grill (in our early 20's) and HE did not use the instructions and it had to come back apart to put the shelf that held the tools on....
