Rain Cap Repair - Thought I would share

I was getting the small prepped for some wings and playing with my daughter at the same time. I went inside to grab something quick and I heard crying outside.
When I came back outside this is what I saw:



Now Megan knew she was not to touch and was feeling very bad. As a parent I knew she felt bad so dicipline was not necessary in this case. I hugged her and told her we might be able to fix it. Sobbing she said "Daddy it is broke forever" I know that it would be easy to get a replacement but in an attempt to show Megan that sometimes it is possible to fix mistakes I went to work with the JB Weld. Was a tricky sucker to put back together...but over a couple days....




I surprised Megan with the results and she was thrilled.

Here she is just recently on first day of Junior Kindergarden.


Kids are wonderful.....

    Nicely done. And more evidence the Egg brings families together. Not to mention you will have a great story 5 years down the road. :)

    I put this one up there with the little girl that threw the baseball away. Keep those pictures for sure, she will love you for it.
  • Looks better than the original, it's been "personalized".

    Way to go Rib fan, you should not only be proud of her but of yourself too. Great job making her feel better after a simple accident.

    Probably spent more on JB Weld than a replacement cap but what a good lesson and memories that will last a lifetime. Beautiful daughter.
  • You have one beautiful little girl there...

    ... and one UGLY rain cap! :laugh:
  • Can't buy eggcessories (or experiences) like that!
    Awesome story, well told.

    my only consolation ... the JB Weld from Crappy Tire was free, thanks to Scanning Code of Practice :P
