As often as I complain about the Lego takeover of my house (especially when they’re digging their evil plastic corners into the bottoms of my feet)- I still end up buying my kids more and more of them. Why? Creativity! It keeps my kids eyeballs off of tablets, and games. Keeps them from asking me if I’ve downloaded any more games to my phone (NO! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GO AWAY!), allows them to build whatever they want–and it’s just about the only toy my kids can play with together without fighting like dogs.
Currently, my children are upstairs playing together, giving me at least a few moments of quiet to sit here and type out this blog, all thanks to Lego. It’s kind of an abusive relationship, if you think about it. Stockholm Syndrome, even. The Lego hurts me, but I can’t make it leave.
In fact, it shows up to my house even when I don’t ask!
In honor of their new original series- Netflix sent us some new Legos to play with, and my kids have been so busy putting them together they haven’t even had time to watch. My kids are very “by the books” when it comes to Lego sets. They put them together perfectly and precisely, then tear the set apart and do it over and over again until they lose the booklet, and that’s when the REAL creating happens. I’m sure when they stop playing nicely (should be any moment now), and the Legos are scattered in such a way that they can only be considered health hazards, they will binge the crap out of LEGO FRIENDS and LEGO BIONICLE (all episodes streaming now).
My feet are angry, but my kids are happy. Fair trade, I guess!
Can’t get enough of LEGO? We don’t blame ya. Check out these other LEGO titles available on Netflix.
New on Netflix for Kids, Tweens, Teens and Families
@anninabyrne He mentioned something about penis trampolines. I don't even know.
My 10 yo didn't know that Dick is short for Richard so he's spent the past 10 yrs thinking Dick's Sporting Goods is a store for penis sports
8yo told me that Oct 31st is "national knock-knock joke day"- which means Halloween will henceforth be known as "The Most Annoying Day Ever"
@SassyPsychDoc "It seemed like a good idea at the time"
@SassyPsychDoc I fact-checked him myself. Someone was seriously sleeping on the job that day
Thought my 8yo was lying when he said that a male woodchuck is a he-chuck & a female is a she-chuck.Nope. If I have to know that, so do you!
Sometimes advice from our kids is EXACTLY what we need to hear. Been a rough few months & what my 8yo said hit home holdinholden.com/2017/10/winn…
10yo: What is calculus? Me: It's you + me = us Husband: get out. #oldpeoplejokes
