Uhh Mom....Brynlee's stuck

While getting ready a few weeks ago Gracie came to me and said a little sheepishly and quite concerned, " uhh Mom...Brynlee's stuck." I asked where, not really wanting to know the answer, "the highchair" was Gracie's reply.  Well that's an easy fix... I headed to the kitchen to take the tray off and free Brynlee.  However, when I got to the kitchen and the highchair Brynlee was no where to be found!  Gracie then explained that Brynlee was stuck in the highchair downstairs.  You see for Christmas 2 years ago Jake built the girls a kitchen set complete with a highchair for their dolls.  In order to prevent this exact situation from occurring he rigged the chair so it was just big enough for a doll to fit but there was no way a kid could and then secured the tray nice and tight. Our plan didn't work...  


Apparently, it was big enough for Brynlee (with the help of Gracie coaxing her to do it) to just slide in, but not slide out!
After pulling, tugging, and tipping both Brynlee and the highchair I realized there was noway she was coming out the way she went in.  Brynlee was now panicing and I was a little myself!  We were going to have to rip off that tray.  I got a hammer and a crowbar thinking it would pop right off...wrong again!  While the highchair is a made of sturdy wood (it was a from Jake's grandpa's house that we cut the legs off and made into a doll chair) the tray was made of partical board and just chipped away when I tried to pry it off.  So after about 20 minutes of chipping away and and ruining this priceless piece, Brynlee was finally free and relieved...until I informed both her and Gracie that they were now in charge of cleaning every single teeny tiny piece of wood that was now left on the floor from chipping the tray away!

Oh, so sad, but funny too. Brynlee is such a trooper (or a stinker, depending on how you look at it :) But ok, so do your girls just hang out and play with cute clips and bows in their hair? They are ADORABLE!!!!!! They've got your big beautiful eyes and just seem so sweet! Darn it all that you had to beat up such a priceless piece, but I'm glad Brynlee is ok :)

Just reminds me of Claire, Tanner, or was it Camille, or all 3 that got their head stuck in the banister at some point! Poor little Brynlee, glad she survived it, and sad that the highchair didn't. Halle will be excited to see these pictures!

OH NO!!! I don't know whether to keep laughing, or to cry! Your poor high chair! I hope Jake can fix it, but those pictures are just too too funny! LOL

Hey Kenna, so since you blog stocked me, I decided to return the favor:) Can I just say that you have beautiful little girls, and congratulations on the 4th! How fun! To be honest I don't know the secret to having boys because this is my first. But I wish you luck on that adventure.

And in regardes to your question about the fabric on my wall it is from either JoAnn's or Hancock fabrics. I can't remember which one but I know it was one or the other. The color on my wall took me about a year to find. I was so sick of buying paint from swatches because they never looked how I wanted them to. So now I just find a color in a fabric that I like and I take it and have it matched. That has worked really well for me. So unfortunately I don't know what it's called because I had it matched to the curtains in our bedroom. But I would suggest you do that. Find a fabric that you love and pick a color, appropriate for walls, and have it matched.

Good luck, and it was good to hear from you.
