It seemed easy enough but one hour was spent searching for a "missing" piece, which was just lodged inside one of those stupid poles and another hour consisted of me swearing at the back of this thing which has impossible to close straps. I think it was either supposed to be a two person job or a non-pregnant one person job. Either way, I finally got it together so on to the point. All the pastels on this thing are a little girly for me and even more so if we have a boy. What to do? Well, my mother-in-law bought us a Michigan mobile but we already had one for the crib so I did a little reconstruction on the swing.
I think it'll score me some points with the hubster (since, you know, creating a human only gets you so many bonus points) plus it makes the swing more gender-neutral... although not team- neutral, so if anyone out there has a longhorn head on a string that you can donate to the cause, go ahead and send it my way.
