I bought the girls a wooden marble set for Christmas, I was thinking, that since their father is an engineer, they would all play together, making marvelous structures, at the same time, creating these little geniuses!!
Well, DUH!!! The Engineer Father is working all day, and the smartie pants sisters are at school, leaving ME, the structurally challenged mother, to build the darn thing!
It took me 2 HOURS, 1 pot of coffee, and a HUGE headache to build the darn thing.

Then I wouldn't let Lily play with it because it was so unsteady that if she touched it, it would topple over and I'd have to build it again!! NOOOOOOO!!
It managed to stay up, even with everyone playing with it for 2 days!! I was very proud!

Then my oldest daughter came home from school, and built a neat structure, without instructions, in under 15mins! ~Brat!~

Just my luck too, LILY loves this marble set, and wanted to play with it EVERYDAY!! So everyday I have to rebuild it!! WHAT WAS I THINKING????

Isn't that just too funny when our kids can come build something in a matter of minutes and it takes us hours...grrrr LOL looks like a cool toy though! About the fotofusion...I went and purchased it (thanks for the info) but now when I go to email a page it is full of watermarks..any idea why? I did send them an email but haven't heard back yet. Cute pix btw. Email me at if you have time. Thanks Krista:)
