« Part 14: Birthday Party Activity [Part 2] - Duck Duck, Goose? Part 15 of Why buy it when you can make it! series Part 16: Dresser Rehab [Part 4] - Almost finished...well finished but some assembly required »

Yesterday was my monthly daddy daughter day (DDD). After a long day of activities and dietary violations (ice cream anyone), I told my daughter that daddy wanted to sand the ducks for her birthday party. Her response was “should I help?”. So off the DDD duo went to sand all of the ducks. Most of the work was done by me outdoors, with my daughter safetly behind a closed patio door. After I was fairly confident I had blown away and wiped down all the dust from the ducks, I let her come out and “blow” off the ducks one last time.

Twenty minutes (and way too many giggles) later, my wife and I had one screaming toddler as we dragged her away from the compressor for dinner. But thanks to the sanding, I was able to spray on the primer today. With that, the ducks are more or less ready for the kiddos on the big birthday shebang. The conclusion of the weekend is…it’s incredible difficult to get an almost 3 year old to keep her safety glasses stay on.
