We’re there! We’re finally there. We’re at the point where the preshus can finally (finally!) build Lego sets on his own without any help! I’m very excited for him (of course), but I’m also very excited for me because building Lego with a small child is one of those parenting/torture things they don’t tell you about in the baby books. It’s kind of like renovating your house with your spouse. It eventually gets done, but not without a lot of blood, sweat and tears.
But here we are, and the preshus is a happy camper.
He’s extremely proud of the fact that he’s only 6 but he managed to build this Bionicle Lego dude made for 7 to 14-year-olds with a minimum of help. I’m very proud of him too.
Shout out to Netflix Canada who sent us the kit. Nothing better than a toy that matches one of your kid’s favourite shows.
The peanut (4) insists that he’s not down with the Lego Friends set Netflix also sent us (and by not down with, I mean he literally drop-kicked the box across the room when he realized that the Bionicle set was not for him), but I know that when I build it, he will come. He’ll be totally on board with Lego Friends once he sees how much fun I’ll be having with it. I’m a Lego mom and I’m not above making my kid feel jealous of my magical Lego building/playing skilz. I’m a good parent that way 😉
I’m a member of the Netflix Canada #StreamTeam and receive compensation for these posts in the form of a Netflix membership and streaming device. Of course as always, my opinions are my own. That said, I’m happy as a clam to post about Netflix goings-ons because if you know anything about me, it’s that I watch a LOT of TV and even the peanut knows to hit the pause button on my iPad before he asks me for help to go potty.
