The kid loves Legos. With just a little help here and there, he looks at the instructions and puts the kits together by himself, impressive for a just-turned-5-year-old. When he’s not building or playing with them, he's studying the sets on the Lego website, and telling us which ones he wants to get (all of them - fanning of the flames of his inner consumerist). Or he's watching other kids review Lego sets on YouTube and treating us to some rather long-winded reviews of his own: "As you can see, there's a lot of sticker detail on this fire truck here... I think it's a pretty cool set."
As you can see, he totally scored on Legos for his birthday last month (fanning the flames of his outer consumerist). In one day, our kitchen table became Lego Headquarters and something had to be done. So we set up this table for him in the living room, that he promptly began calling his “Lego Office.”
Keeping Legos off the kitchen table has gone the way of so many other lofty goals, like cleaning the playroom every day. The Lego Office was a godsend at first, and now simply helps demarcate little Legos from big Legos. Welcome to the kitchen table… my other Lego Office.
