The birthday mask puzzle... any parent should be able to assemble a simple party hat/mask right? Well, we tried and did got each separate part done, but could not figure out how to get it to fit together. I figured it was missing something, or we just weren't that smart, but I was going with the first one.
I had put the hat in the recycle so that way my son wouldn't keep bringing it back to be fixed, when that obviously wasn't going to happen.
A few hours later Grant came in wearing the party mask! I was quite shocked. I had him take it off and show me how he did it. I'm still surprised the way it works. I must say I was also curious if he had done it right and what strange way he could get this thing to work.
Nope, he did it right and it looked good on him too. The string is how the two pieces stay together in case you wanted to know (I hadn't thought of that because usually the string goes around the head on things like that). Then it just rests on his ears like glasses would. Such a smart boy!
And the answer is... No, we are not smarter than a 5 year old :).
This was Grant's first Chuck E Cheese birthday party (happy birthday Adam) and Daddy went with him. I think he had a great time and he won enough tickets to bring home little rubber lizards that he shared with his brother and sister. That was the best souvenir... besides the candy, cup, and whistle :).
Such cute boys!
