Rats... Foiled Again

I am not a stupid person. I learned how to read at the age of four. I was the valedictorian of my high school class. I graduated from college Summa Cum Laude and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I have honed my razor sharp wits by running around after three small children (or maybe that has translated into Mommy Mush Brain). All I know is that I am completely stumped today. I have totally disappointed my five-year old son. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to transform Optimus Prime back into a truck.

I'll send Aaron over. Those darn transformers always got the best of me, too. And the directions?! Yeah, no help there, that's for sure!

Every minute counts.... said...

I am so glad that my boys are too old for those and Abi has no interest in them. They really are VERY hard to transform. Have you ever tried to get clothes back on BRATZ dolls? That is about as hard to do!

And you thought you were smart?????? It's the little things in life that really count, you know? I have always believed (like way back when they were hot in the 1980's???) if Transformers were so brilliant, they'd transform themselves! Good luck, and maybe another child can help!! Love ya, Aunt Joan

Have him call Uncle Tee - he talks Jake through many transformations over the phone!!

Too funny! Tranformers should have been a class in college!

HAHAHA! That's a question for my husband! He was a huge transformer friend and Optimus Prime was his favorite. I rag on him almost daily about that. Good luck! ;-)

Hi Tree - Not sure if you remember me, this is Erin from your EC days...I graduated a year before you, hung out in Charlie Mitchell's office now and then... Anyway, I found your blog thru Campus magazine, and had to check it out. My husband has his master's in special education and counseling, and has worked with kids who have William's Syndrome. Also, we have some friends whose son has Williams. Such a small world some days...
Anyway, I didn't mean to write a novel here, but just wanted to say hi!
