Rachel's Blog: Let's Go, Lego!
Abbey and I both have bad sore throats at the moment, but I had one moment of genius today and dragged out the "real" Lego. That is - the original, small sized, no fancy-pants pieces, town Lego. Within seconds we were going kkrrrrshhhh, kkkrrrrssshhhh through the box and I was transported back a couple of decades. (yikes.)
Abbey isn't quite up to building with it yet, but she made herself a little green park with a blue pond, trees, flowers and some ducks that we found pre-assembled in the box. Unfortunately the park did not stay static long enough for a photo. I managed to freeform this little red bus after ten minutes krrrsssh krrrsssshing to find a second set of wheels.
Above all, I impressed upon Abbey the Two Fundamental Laws of Lego Building.
- The plural of Lego is Lego.
- Thou shalt return every piece back to the box from whence it came.
