Ryan really loves to buy things second hand... and usually I am all for his thriftiness. However one day he came home from the Salvation Army with a 1276 piece K'Nex rollercoster building set, ages 10 and up... for our three year old. I promptly put it in the hall closet hoping all would be forgetten, and for a while it was.
But wouldn't you know it, the week Ryan goes out of town, Kai rediscovers the rollercoaster and wants to build it. So what does any good mom do.... she starts piecing all 1276 pieces together for her adoring son. I built the frame and Ryan got home in time to assemble the track and get it working.
Kai loves it and even though it takes up our entire living room floor, it is pretty impressive.
Today we went and saw Kunfu Panda. I guess Po instilled some courage in Kai, because when he got home he was ready to try out his big boy bike for the first time this summer.
He only fell once and got right back up and started riding again. He is such a big boy!!!
