All American Dad

When we went to order our crib and nursery furniture from Nebraska Furniture Mart, the salesman asked us if we’d like the crib assembled for ten dollars. I instantly agreed – ten bucks seems like such a nominal charge for furniture assembly and placement in the room! However, Rollie would have none of this. He had them remove the charge and decided he would assemble the crib on his own. I really think it had nothing to do with the saving of ten dollars and much more with the "All American Dad" attitude of putting together his son's crib with his bare hands.

As you may have already guessed, the ten dollar charge would have been totally worth it! A bargain, if you ask me. Of course, the crib took hours to assemble, and I wasn’t much help because I have a firm belief that husbands and wives should never assemble furniture (or anything else for that matter) together. I call this the "Ikea Principle".

Molly wasn’t a lot of help , but she wanted to be right there in case she was needed. Rollie determined the perfect job for her – wearing one of those magnet bands (designed to go around your arm to hold nails and such). With a little velcro extension, Molly can wears hers as a vest and hold anything from nuts and bolts, to an Allen wrench.

Molly really wanted to help by reading the directions and supervising the assembly.

Finally, the crib is assembled and Molly gets to be the first to test it out.
