    This is SO true! I remember sitting on the floor and stating “why are there no instructions in English?” – then we’d find 3 small steps that gave us NO INFO at all. What? Wait, how do we do that or get to that?

      I always get concerned when, after completing the build, there a a few extra parts still there.

        AS my husband once said…finding a piece on the floor…where did that come from? Did you put that there? (yes, I put that there.)
