I am going to do a little bragging here.

I rock.

I have a feeling of accomplishment that cannot be overstated.

Birds are singing.

So are angel choirs.

I didn't think it was possible.

Some days the impossible happens.

Some days karma just seems to smile.

Some days karma smiles while birds and angels sing.

Today is that day.

*bask in it*

*bask in it*

*bask in it*

I, Holly here at the Nirvana, successfully without breaking anything, without referring to any written material, without using any naughty words transformed Reid(4)'s Optimus Prime into the tow truck.

*bow*

Thank you. Thank you very much.

*bow*

Really, thank you. I know! I know!

*bow*

Seriously, people. Thank you!

*bow*

Thanks again.

*bow*

OK, I think I have milked this long enough (although, here at the Nirvana no dead horse goes UNbeaten).

*bow*

ENOUGH! It isn't like I put together a piece of IKEA furniture or anything...

Kalynne Pudner said...

I'm seriously impressed. Do you think you could come jump start my lawn mower?

BOSSY said...

Ikea furniture is a big reason Bossy could never get a Divorce.

Suzie said...

Not sure what that means (I dont drive) but good for you.

A Mom Two Boys said...

Wow! That's quite a feat.

Although I'm more impressed that Bossy commented. That's HUGE.

geez, woman. Alltop, Bossy...will you remember us little bloggers?

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

I'm assuming it is akin to the satisfaction I once felt in assembling a Lego Indian Village. Although I'm not sure I accomplished it without cursing. Great job!

Misty said...

You are my hero. Completely. I suspected so before, but it was just confirmed upon reading this post.

My husband (note, NOT my child) is a Transformer obsessor. (it's sick. But I digress...)

He has several OP. SEVERAL, ranging in sizes. I tried, one time, to transform it and failed.

I am no longer allowed to touch any Autobots. At all.

On a limb with Claudia said...

I'm sorry dear. I think I need photographic proof of such a major accomplishment. ;)

On a limb with Claudia said...

erm... I tagged you for a six word memoir meme. I'm just fascinated as to what you would say. Between you and me? I was going to say:

Butterfly bandages rock my world everyday.

But I didn't think anyone would get it! ;)

Mylhibug said...

Amen on the IKEA furniture - what's up with that? I like how the old toys of my past are now the new toys of the future.

Or something like that.

Manic Mommy said...

You may be the. coolest. mom. ever.

One question: Where was Reid(4)? Because I'm a pretty good assembler. It's just when 'help' arrives that everything hits the fan.

Tootsie Farklepants said...

I hate that I love IKEA furniture. Because that lone little tool they sometimes supply you with to assemble it? Can suck it.

Sleeping with Ward Cleaver said...

is this like assembling a gas grill?

Inzaburbs said...

Way to go!

Personally, I have slept easy at night since I learnt that you can transform those things by pulling off their limbs .
After a while it loosens them up too, so they stand all wobbly and drunken looking.

Sad, how I get my kicks ;-)

exskindiver said...

nothing is too insignificant to enjoy a good pat on my own back.
i hear ya.

Greta said...

You totally do rock. I'm still trying to figure out Darth Vader/Death Star. I literally had two mechanical engineers on it.

Pinky said...

WoooHooo!
I'd have to hand that one over to Mr. Pinky.
Yay for you, mom!

Pinky said...

WoooHooo!
I'd have to hand that one over to Mr. Pinky.
Yay for you, mom!

Amy W said...

I am pretty sure I would never be able to do that.

laughingatchaos said...

You're a stronger woman than I am. I have taught my sons some interesting and very grownup phrases...

Sadie said...

*giggle* Congrats!!! you should feel so proud!

Jennifer H said...

I am amazed. Those things kick my arse.

(standing ovation from Arizona!)

jennie said...

stinkin' optimus prime, my brother was always making fun of my ineptitude at transforming the transformers. glad to know someone older than 12 can, because i still can't.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

I bow before your majesty for I know that I would be unable to master such a feat. You are wondrous.

Angie said...

You deserve some sort of initials after your name for that one, and not the physical therapist ones you already have. Seriously.

KEEP BELIEVING

Madge said...

next challenge -- Lego Star Wars Slave One -- Then we'll talk...

Nap Warden said...

OK, I can put together IKEA furniture, but I can't do that!

Elaine A. said...

Can you see me doing a "Standing O?" Oh you can't? That's because I'm not. Did you really think I was gonna get up off the sofa?

Still proud of you though. Way to Go Momma!

fullheartandhands mama said...

Amazing!

Now, what is an Optimus Prime?

Meg said...

YOU da woMAN!

Bren said...

You deserve a medal for putting that thing together. I? Have given up trying. Maybe you can offer a tutorial? ;)

JCK said...

If I knew what they were, then I would be EVEN more impressed. But, my head is spinning from all that Nirvana bowing to thundering cheers from the commenters. Congrats !!!

g said...

Very funny! You have a great way with dialogue!

So what the heck did you put together, anyway?

the planet of janet said...

holy cow, woman! how in the heck did you manage that!

i am not worthy....

Beth said...

I used to feel the same way when my son first started putting Bionicles together. But now that he is 5 1/2 he can do them all by himself! Yippee!

That's true happiness right there.

Rachel said...

I am so bowing at your feet. That's amazing.
Can I be cool like you Holly?

frogpondsrock said...

Holly... You are now officially "My Hero"

hehehe xxx Kim

Mommy Cracked said...

My husband (the Transformers freak) would find you quite irrisistable! Isn't it amazing the *stuff* you have to learn while raising a boy?

jennifer said...

You truly are AWESOME.

This post makes me love you a little more.
