We had one of those parenting moments when we just had to sit back and watch what was happening. It turns out that Noah can assemble Ikea furniture. By himself.
We've trained him well. He started being Daddy's helper for assembling furniture when he was 2, so he has had 3 good years of practice, since we're loyal Ikea customers.
We bought a new kitchen table and four chairs last weekend. Noah took charge of the instructions, organized the parts, and assembled a chair by himself. Matt only had to help stabilize the parts once in a while.
Isaac was quite the helper too. 2 more years for him, and he can build his own furniture.
The next day, the boys got to work assembling another chair.
Noah helped with the second chair, then he was done.
Really, the fun stops after the first one anyway.
