summer rerun


My 13 year old´s Wii went on the blink. In the time it took me to remember where I had left the guarantee, he had the tool box out and was rolling up his sleeves. Why is it that men, little men in this case, assume that when anything breaks they can fix it? It doesn´t matter that they have never seen the inside of a Wii ( toaster, DVD...) in their lives - they are somehow convinced that if they can get it open, the problem will be solved. So in between laughter, (if you had seen how serious he looked, you´d have laughed too) I wrestled* Daniel to the floor in an attempt to ply the screwdriver out of his little hand. Of course, that night, my husband had it opened and fixed within five minutes...
