My relationship with Lego’s is complicated to say the least. I love the fact that my boys are so creative with them but at the same time, I hate finding them with the bottom of my foot.
No matter how many times I try to get them all picked up, they always seem to reappear shortly after.
Lego’s have brought my kids together and also been the root cause of much of the fighting in the Lost and Tired household. They always fight over individual pieces and it drives me crazy. Part of me wants to just take a break from Lego’s all together and see if their relationships improve.
Some of the boys tend to hoard the Lego’s….cough cough Gavin cough cough.
I don’t think that he’s trying to be selfish. I think he just really, really likes his creations and does want to see them dismantled. I can totally understand that. However, at the same time, we don’t have an endless supply of Lego’s and it’s not fair to the other boys who want to build as well.
This always leads to a meltdown and makes me hate Lego’s even more. The only reason we even still have them is because of how much the boys love them. If I didn’t love my boys so much, I would have killed off the Lego population long ago.
My goal is to try to find a nice balance where the kids can play with their Lego’s without fighting and I don’t have to step on them in the middle of the night anymore.
Do you folks have a toy that you really dislike or drives you crazy? Please share with the class:-)
