Too bad Santa doesn’t assemble the toys for you. I spent two hours today putting together Rock’em Sock’em Robots for Thomas and a twin doll stroller and twin doll double-decker bed/feeding station for Charlotte. The latter being quite complex. My 6-year-old is getting the American Girl Bitty Twins that resemble my two when they were little. Thankfully I found the stroller and bed contraption for $40 together. One of the stroller wheels is sticking. I told Daddy he’ll have to put some WD-40 on it. Hopefully that’ll work since we bought the doll stuff in Iowa City months ago. So far, so good hiding everything. I don’t know how parents do it with kids who are old enough to figure out the pre-Christmas buying or who like to snoop around. At this point mine are oblivious to the pile in a dark space of the basement storage room with a blanket over it. Let’s just hope I remember to get it all out for the big reveal!
