Somehow I missed out on Legos as a kid. I think with 9 kids and 9 pets Legos were probably the last thing on my parent’s mind….or, who knows, maybe there were a bunch of Legos that came in and out before I came of age. Either way, I’ve decided that Legos are really cool toys. Jeff’s parents brought us out a bunch of his old Legos and the kids play with them probably more than anything else. They could almost be classified as “addicted” to Legos as they would be to a video game. When I ask them to clean them up they try to, but they can’t help but stick them together and build things as they clean…..which results very little progress. Why hasn’t anyone invented a Lego vacuum? Or have they?
As much as I hate the “dumping legos” sound, I love it that my kids minds are occupied by them for long long stretches of time…..
Here’s a meager (and pretty unimpressive….they’ve come up with more impressive stuff than this) sampling of the Lego creations I find laying around our house. I think that’s a TV tower and some kind of tractor trailer.
