In an effort to send good "baby vibes" across the ocean, I did what I said I wouldn't do (til we got our referral) - and put our little one's jogger pram together! Here's how you put a $38 e.ba.y jogger together...
Retrieve dusty dented box from shed. (sneeze 20 times, from all the dust up your nose, then blow all dust from your nose, into a Kleenex!)
Open box.... Oooo-Aaaah over plastic covered contents.
Remove pieces from box, remove plastic, and lay all pieces on the floor. Ooo's and ahhh's have now change to "oh crap, does this thing have an alan key"?!!
Open main part of pram, and attach front swivel wheel to front forks.... (more oh craps! hope I've put this on tight enough!)
Fix "brake" bar to back forks, and "smack" each back wheel on. (it said til the click, but I smacked it with my hand to get it on, so I didn't hear it click!!!) It doesn't appear, it's going to come off.... all must be well.
Attach "parent tray" and "baby tray"... ooo goodie, I have a tray?!!!
Voila! Its done! It goes UP.... It goes DOWN!
Mini (ha!) enjoys a ride! (oh and I'm not sure if you can see - but I've put in a "pramliner" that I bought about 3 years ago - it's mint green with Classic Pooh on it. I love Classic Pooh. Now, its nice and squishy and comfy.... and hopefully if Mini makes a mess, I can throw Classic Pooh liner into washing machine and pram will still look good as new!....hopefully!
I know I'm ridiculously excited about a new pram... after Mini has been home 2 weeks, the novelty will have worn off, I'll be ticked off about how heavy the darn thing is to throw in the back of the car!!!
