I realize Halloween isn’t even over yet…but you guys know what’s coming up and fast? That’s right, the holiday season! And with every toy catalogue that arrives in the mail I begin to twitch thinking about Mike and I up way past our bedtime trying to put together a My Little Pony stable with half the pieces missing and then Mike rips the sticker decals by accident and the two most important pieces don’t seem to fit together and OH MY GOD, we are smart people, why is this so hard??????

My friend Karen (aka Baby Sideburns) and my friends at What’s Up Moms collaborated on a short video that depicts the universal struggle of parents trying to put together a goddamn Barbie Dreamhouse.

What toy almost broke you when you tried to assemble it?
