Two days before Thanksgiving the aerator on my kitchen faucet decided to blow out. The day before Thanksgiving I dragged the four to Lowes to look for 1) a repair part or 2) a new faucet. Did you know that one-size fits all replacement parts stink? Very leaky, splashy. Mommy got a new faucet for Thanksgiving! (Almost). Matt was in the process of changing them out when I rounded the corner and discovered he had a little buddy helping him. Sort of.
Poor Matt- Jason was so intrigued by what he was doing & really wanted to be right there in the thick of things. Of course, wrenches walked off and had to be hunted down, but Matt's really very tolerant of 'help' when it comes his way!
Did my new faucet get installed before it was time to cook Thanksgiving dinner? Of course not. Every project requires at least 2 trips to your local hardware store. Sort of Murphy's Law of DIY projects. Matt braved the crowds on Black Friday morning to get what he needed and I was loving my new faucet by lunch time. Thanks Matt :)
To those who've wondered if I take my 'doll' with me everywhere, the answer is no - he hangs out on my kitchen window sill & keeps me company while I cook and clean up. Because a Harried Mom spends lots of time in the kitchen, and at least he doesn't pester me for things or make a lot of noise. He's just quietly supportive. I like that.
