We put Ash to bed at 8:24 tonight, turned on the video monitor and watched him do a screaming lap around the room and then climb back into bed, under the covers, and fall quietly to sleep. Story time to snooze time in 0 to 60 seconds. Cheers. Though it may have been due to the fact that he came home from daycare to the sight of this in his backyard... Yes, folks, daddy pulled superhero secret ninja stunt #409 this week. He drove to CT to disassemble and load the playset into a truck, brought it to our yard in NY where he sanded the entire damned thing and restained all of the parts that weren't facing down (we'll get to those on Monday), replaced some rotted pieces of wood, dug out half of our garden to replace tomato roots with space to play, and then recruited enough hands to assemble the entire thing today. Short of some finishing touches of staining and laying the boarders and mulch it's complete and ready to be featured in "I bought a used playset for dirt cheap and assembled it in 1 week" magazine. Or maybe the title of that magazine should just be "Daddy Rocks".
