Have you ever seen this much Lego?

I certainly haven't. This box was generously given to Aaron by one of my cousins. It is just one of 3 boxes of Legos that I'm going to 'ration' out to him.



He was pretty hyped up about all the little bits an pieces in here. The surprising part was that I was even more excited than him. I'm going to have so much fun building stuff. I think my lack of interest as a child could have been because there just weren't enough pieces to be mixing and matching. I know, Lego sets are expensive and its not that I needed any more toys when I was growing up.

This huge present from my cousin is going to save me THOUSANDS of Ringgits and provide Aaron and me with hours of fun. I'm even looking forward to sorting all the pieces out. Y'know, trying to work out which ones were originally part of the same set.

Today has been a great day. We got to the box of Legos at the end of the day and had so much fun with it I really didn't want to put him to bed. Earlier in the day, we spent some time shopping with my mother. Aaron was super energetic the whole time but we had an incredibly enjoyable time at the mall. He's really becoming a little companion that I can have conversations with and enjoy things together with. We did use the Naughty Square once today but there were no hard feelings. He went to bed after giving me hundreds of little kisses and cuddles mixed in with sighs of contentment.

Amanda,
Several years ago we visited the Lego Store at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Not only could you play with Legos for hours, but they had life sized constructions of a cowboy on his horse, a racecar, dinosaurs that were 7 meters tall and all kinds of things.

Legos!! I love Legos, and Agnes loves them as much as I do. We still (at age 57) love playing Legos with the grandchildren (or even with each other when no grandchildren are available). If Aaron ever needs a Lego playmate, let us know!

My son grew up with legos. I think there is still a box that big somewhere around here filled with legos.

What a nice gesture!
