Anyway, why am I telling you that now without posting about it yet (still)? Two weekends ago we were able to actually get some work done - yay! Chris has been itching to build drawers in his truck to store many of his tools so that he has less to pack up every single morning before work. Now that Zoe is getting slightly older day by day sometimes we're actually able to get work done while she hangs around. And this was one of those days.
Chris had someone manufacture metal trays and he built up walls with plywood on them to create drawers. Chris thought this might be the perfect opportunity for Zoe to get to drive her first screw.
First, he showed her how put the screw on the drill and drive it in himself
And then Zoe was eager to get in on the action
And it was her turn
Well, it was love at first impact driver because Zoe was hooked
The impact driver and drill became her favorite activity for the day
The hilarious thing was whenever she really noticed that I was paying attention to her she would get up and walk away with it somewhere else. I think she thought I was going to take it away
That joy :)
And each time she'd set it down and wiggle her little fingers around till she could get it working again
"Oh, you're watching me again? Gotta move out"
"I'm watching you mom..."
That kid cracks me up.
Now she gets very excited and wants to play with it when Chris has them out (the drill gets love too)
And it coincided perfectly with getting a late Christmas present from my aunt...
Her very own impact driver toy :) And she LOVES it. It's very adorable to see her love to play with it so much. The crazy thing is it actually drives the plastic screws it comes with.
Yes, it's positively ridiculous that I took so many pictures of her playing with the impact driver, I know. But hey, I couldn't help but be so happy and get a great big smile on my face when my daughter found so much joy in a tool we use all the time.
